A development company based in Ontario, Canada is looking at the possibility of building an energy-efficient, sustainable apartment project in an industrial section of Grand Junction populated with warehouses and garages.
The company s2e Technologies specializes in solar projects, smart communities, and multi-family apartment complexes.
Last year the company saw the completion of its first net zero grocery store in Ontario, a project designed to use 35 percent less energy than a typical grocery store.
Now s2e Technologies is looking at the possibility of redeveloping a 5-acre Grand Junction site at 630 S. Seventh Street.
That property was formerly the home of StarTek, a company specializing in customer support for health care, retail, and e-commerce clients.
StarTek moved out of the one-story, 50,000 square foot building it occupied at the site several years ago.
The Ontario company may be closing on the property - which has recently been listed for around $3.3 million - early next year, with actual construction at the site beginning sometime in summer 2020.
Because the property is located in a defined Opportunity Zone, any redevelopment project would be eligible for certain economic incentives.
It is not yet known whether the company will demolish the former StarTek building or re-purpose it.
