The owner of the building that now houses Inca Mexican Restaurant is considering redeveloping the site into a Bank of America, potentially displacing the longtime Fort Collins Mexican eatery.

The building at 2413 S. College Ave., is owned by Steve Schroeder of Loveland. Conceptual plans filed with the city of Fort Collins show a 4,145-square-foot bank building with parking, a patio and a drive-up ATM.

A conceptual plan review is the first step in the development review process and no final decisions have been made.

The 4.2-acre site on the west side of South College Avenue just north of West Drake Road, is for sale for $8.8 million and being marketed by Van Hull Commercial. It is adjacent to the former Kmart property that King Soopers is redeveloping into a new grocery store.

Schroeder referred all questions to Realtor Brad Van Hull, who was not available for comment.

Inca owner Mario Gutierrez said he is aware of the potential redevelopment and is talking with his landlord about finding a new spot for the restaurant. Inca has been a staple among Fort Collins' Mexican food options for 20 years.

Bank of America is expanding its footprint beyond its ATM at the Shops at Rigden Farm to a new brick-and-mortar building at Front Range Village on Harmony Road. Bank of America announced in 2019 it intended to grow into Northern Colorado as part of a 14-bank expansion in the state.
