The Foundry

The Foundry – Coming Fall 2018

The Foundry is inspired by a food hall and will feature eight distinct micro-restaurants. The look and feel will be intentionally different from Colorado State’s current facilities. The micro-restaurants will be: 1870, featuring comfort foods that honor CSU’s roots as an ag school; Piatto, featuring Italian street food; Theory, featuring an ever-changing pop-up menu; Root, featuring vegan, vegetarian, and sustainable menu items; Passport, featuring different international cuisines each day; Comida Con Sabor, featuring a fresh tortilla maker and made-to-order Mexican dishes; and The Creamery, featuring different desserts and ice cream. The existing Kosher Bistro will round out the micro-restaurant concepts with a menu refresh and venue redesign. Each micro-restaurant will feature some seating and will still support the all-you-care-to-eat dining model by allowing students and guests to move between and select menu items from any of the venues.

1870

1870, the year that CSU was founded, will serve student’s favorite comfort foods. 1870 is the truest expression of Colorado State’s roots. This micro-restaurant will use reused bowling lane wood with the 1870 logo branded on it. The space will feature reclaimed wood and a historic map of Fort Collins.

Corbett Lobby – Coming Fall 2018

Corbett lobby and lounge will be restored to one large and welcoming area, as it was originally. Various seating options, a fireplace and living wall will make the north side of the lounge perfect for relaxing and studying, while the south side will have more space for socializing and recreation with a pool table and TV. The community desk, located in the lobby area, will serve as a hub with a new community kitchen just across from the desk.
