Hop on the Grain Train Linear Brewery
Off The Rails Design Competition: Hop on the Grain Train Linear Brewery is a proposal that enhances the public realm of and mitigates many of the issues in the Mason Street Downtown Corridor. The intervention accomplishes this by introducing additional programmatical elements which support the micro-brewing, live music and bicycle culture that Fort Collins enjoys.
Adding these three efforts will have positive effects on local culture, surrounding businesses and visitors to the site. At once, the noise of the train is mitigated, pedestrian and cycle travel is improved, and the legacy of the railway is honored. Vibrant public space is introduced that celebrates the unique Fort Collins culture of music, bicycles and craft beer.
