April 3, 2019 – Construction & Developer Update

April 3, 2019 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

$25.00 – $50.00
Please join us in learning about all the amazing projects and developments going on in Northern Colorado.  There is so much activity going on, we’ve brought in three industry leaders to fill us in on some of their activities and current projects they are working on!
The Speakers are:
Martin Lind – President – Water Valley Land Company
A fourth-generation farmer of German descent in the Windsor area, Martin Lind became a land developer in 1985 after working in the agricultural, oil and gas businesses.
Martin has been instrumental in developing several emerging commercial, business, and industrial areas in Northern Colorado’s fastest growing region. The 180-acre Eagle Crossing business park, as well as the Windsor Iron Mountain Autoplex and the now iconic Westlake Mall located in Greeley, and The Brands at the Ranch, all shine as exemplary examples of Lind’s work. In 1990, he purchased land around the Cache la Poudre River with the vision of mining the aggregate and then reclaiming the land for a residential golf community featuring five man-made lakes. In 1995, ground was broken for the Water Valley master-planned community to encompass 1,500 acres and 2,600 residential units. Nine years later, Water Valley was recognized by the state as the Premier Reclamation Project. In total, Lind is involved with nearly 4,000 acres of real estate in Northern Colorado. Included in Water Valley is the 27-hole Pelican Lakes Golf & Country Club that also features the Grillhouse & Sand Bar at Pelican Lakes.
In addition to his many development projects, Lind donated over $1 million to aid in the completion of the Larimer County Fairgrounds and Events Center complex. In the early 2000s a group of local investors, led by Martin, was influential in creating what is now the Colorado Eagles. Lind is now the sole owner of the American Hockey League-affiliated Colorado Eagles, a team that has captured four league championships since its inception in 2003.
Martin and wife of over 30 years, Viki, are involved in numerous philanthropic efforts all around the state and make their home in Windsor where they’ve raised four children and seven grandchildren.
In his free time, Martin enjoys golfing, hunting, fishing, and spending time with his family.
