Silverthorne outlets poised for investment

Steamboat Springs

Silverthorne Mayor Lou Del Piccolo said this week the management company marketing the factory outlet malls in his city is preparing to undertake a major face-lift.

Del Piccolo, who was in Steamboat Springs for the Colorado Municipal League convention, said the mall managers intend to put a fresh look on some of the public areas within the scattered sections of the mall. For example, a courtyard near the Nike outlet will be broken up to improve pedestrian access and visibility for surrounding stores. Many of the storefronts next to Nike are vacant, Del Piccolo said. He said mall managers will push to attract more tenants concurrent with the improvement project.
