Grand Junction Free Press seeks new downtown location
The current Grand Junction Free Press building, located at the southwest corner of Fourth Street and Rood Avenue, recently sold to Neil Ross of Aspen, Colo.
Formerly a bank and insurance building, the retail structure located at 145 N. Fourth St., one block off Main Street, is 10,676 square feet. The site was purchased for $400,000 in early June.
“The Free Press is proud to call the Grand Valley home,” said Ben Rogers, general manager of the Free Press. “With the sale of our existing location we are now actively searching for a new location. We will remain in our current location until we find the right spot for our business. The Free Press has always been a downtown Grand Junction business, and we aim to stay that way.”
According to Ross, he has been visiting Grand Junction for more than 40 years and first noticed the Free Press building five years ago.
“It’s an iconic building,” Ross said. “I would like to maintain the integrity of the building by attracting a tenant who has a vision and wants to maintain the vitality of downtown Grand Junction. … I want to make it affordable to a business that’s vibrant.”
