The Willits neighborhood has launched Phase Two of their commercial development with thousands of square feet of new space becoming available at the end of 2016. Whole Foods, the anchor tenant that signaled the emergence of Willits as a destination, has grabbed more space for expansion and almost singlehandedly put the Town of Basalt in an economic tailspin.
With completion of the new commercial building, several well-known Aspen tenants have already signed long-term leases, which will continue to build the momentum and buzz. The addition of the Element Hotel by Westin, a second Mezzaluna Restaurant location, a brewpub and a cutting-edge spa guarantees the vibrancy will continue. Add more residential housing, overhead lights and fountains into the mix and Willits is now the place to be.
