Rendezvous Colorado, together with Koelbel and Company, announced the official grand opening of Rendezvous Center, a redevelopment on Winter Park’s Main Street.

Rendezvous is a resort home community that rejuvenates body, soul and relationships through togetherness and outdoor fun: skiing, snowshoeing, fly fishing, mountain biking and nature walks, plus miles of trails to experience – for adventure or respite. Located on border of Winter Park and Fraser, Denver’s closest destination resort, Rendezvous is easy to get to, and to experience, with its laid-back vibe.

This new building will become an iconic welcoming place for the Town of Winter Park as the home of the Chamber of Commerce, the new Visitor Center as well the Rendezvous Center Residences and the new Rendezvous Colorado Development and Sales Offices.

This $15MM project is one of many investments currently underway in Winter Park that will upgrade the look, feel and overall infrastructure of the Town. Koelbel and Company developed the project with the  goal of continuing their longstanding commitment to the region.

“The Koelbel family has had roots in the Fraser Valley for more than 65 years and we are  doubling down on this commitment by making significant investments in the community to  ensure it reaches its fullest potential,” said Koelbel and Company President, Walter A.  ‘Buz’ Koelbel. “We see Winter Park as the last great mountain town and having  tremendous opportunity for growth and investment so we are thrilled to be part of this  collaborative effort to make critical improvements.”

The half-acre site was purchased by Koelbel from the Town of Winter Park in 2017, as part of  the purchase of the naming rights to the adjacent stage at Hideaway Park now known as  “Rendezvous Event Center.” After significant planning and working with the Town of Winter  Park, they have completed a three-story, state-of-the-art facility that will become a landmark for  the town and a gathering place for residents and visitors alike. It is adjacent to the Rendezvous  Event Center, which is home to numerous events and concerts annually. It was important to  incorporate the Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Center in the new design along with the  town’s beloved mascot, a giant bronze Moose. Flanking both sides of the statement commercial  corner are five residential townhomes and two stacked flats.

“This high-profile building is one of the first things people see when they arrive in town,”  said Koelbel. “As one of the first parcels to be redeveloped along Main Street, we’ve  created a mountain contemporary architectural design that reflects the new attitude of Winter Park but is  incredibly welcoming at the same time.”

The Chamber of Commerce recently moved into their newly designed home, which also houses a new Visitor Welcome Center and back of house operations. The Chamber of Commerce and  Visitor Center occupy a portion of the first two floors at the corner, and the developer’s new  operations and sales center shares the street entry level. Rendezvous Center will also contain  the Rendezvous resort community’s marketing and sales operations and will serve as the  gateway and launching pad to Rendezvous Winter Park. The third floor offers an incredible  entertainment space including the indoor Rendezvous room complete with catering kitchen, as well as an outdoor deck that provides sweeping views of town, the mountains, and neighboring  Hideaway Park. It also provides an important view to the developer’s next phase of  development that will be built over the next 20 years, so buyers can see where their new home will be.

In addition to office space, Koelbel has built 7 luxury for sale townhomes/flats and podium covered parking starting at $1.3M. The contemporary mountain architecture of the townhomes  with pitched roofs, expansive glass, and mix of rich materials including stone, metal and wood augment the commercial corner and provide a nice backdrop for the park. Showcasing  mountain modern design, the limited-edition three- and four-bedroom Rendezvous Center Residences designs will deliver the ultimate in mountain living – marrying mountain escape with an entertainment hub.

“Rendezvous Center is the perfect example of a project that will further enhance our  community and begin the transformation of Main Street Winter Park,” said Winter Park Mayor  Nick Kutrumbos. “We are excited about the future of this community.”
