BASALT REAL ESTATE — A popular bike and ski shop is relocating from downtown Basalt to Willits Town Center, in part, to capture some of the business expected to be drawn to Whole Foods Roaring Fork.Basalt Bike and Ski owner Joel Mischke said there are “layers of reasons” for the move, including the increased exposure to customers headed to the supermarket. The relocation of Basalt Bike and Ski is evidence the opening of a strong anchor tenant will jump-start Willits Town Center, a development approved for roughly 500,000 square feet of commercial and residential space. Only a small portion of the project is developed and vacancy rates remain high in one of the two buildings completed.
