Dave’s history in real estate has involved extensive and varied aspects of the business, including acquisitions, sales, syndications, financing, brokerage, historic rehabilitations, conservation easements, and residential and commercial new construction. Some of his company’s more notable development projects include the Fort Collins Marriott Hotel (a 230 room full service hotel), the Fort Collins Courtyard Hotel (a 112 room limited service hotel), the Fort Collins Residence Inn Hotel (a 113 room extended stay hotel), the Scotch Pines Village Shopping Center (a 100,000 s.f. retail/office project), Old Town Square (a redevelopment project located in the heart of Downtown Fort Collins, Colorado, including approximately 110,000 square feet of office and retail space in approximately a dozen separate historical buildings), the Arena Office Park (included various office pads and buildings on an infill site surrounding the Fort Collins Marriott Hotel), the Berthoud Village Shopping Center (a small, grocery anchored, shopping center project in Berthoud, Colorado), the Wells Fargo Bank Building ( a 3-story, 40,000 s.f. office building in Fort Collins, Colorado), the Cottages at Berthoud Village (a residential condominium development in Berthoud, Colorado), and the Diamond Farms RLUP (a rural land use plan residential development located north of Fort Collins, Colorado involving various residential lots and a conservation easement to enhance and preserve the historic agricultural use on portions of the residual land).
When not working, Dave looks for about any way possible to spend time outdoors, including shooting his bow, casting a flyline, freezing in a goose blind, climbing hills on his bike, trudging up a mountain with his backpack or getting jarred by moguls on his skiis; and particularly enjoys these activities if joined by his sons, Alex and Nik, and/or his wife, Phyllis.
