Body
Summary:
A resolution to approve amending the City Council Resolution 53-17, a resolution authorizing a land exchange between the City of Colorado Springs and CSJ No. 7 LLC and Urban Enterprises, LLC.

Background:
On April 25, 2017, City Council approved Resolution 53-17 authorizing a land exchange between the City of Colorado Springs and CSJ No. 7 LLC and Urban Enterprises, LLC, in support of the Southwest Downtown Urban Renewal Area and as part of the CDOT I-25/Cimarron Improvement Project.

The land exchange involves the exchange of two (2) City-owned properties known as 25 and 125 Cimino Drive for a portion of a privately owned parcel know as 301 Cimino Drive.

Owner or related entity has committed to build the landing, staircase and elevator for the Southwest Downtown pedestrian bridge at a cost of approximately $2.6 million. Owner or related entity has also committed to pay approximately $3.2 million toward the cost of the pedestrian bridge. The construction of the bridge is imminent, thus the conveyance of 125 Cimino is urgent.

Due to extenuating circumstances the land exchange has not been concluded.
