The owner of the building that now houses the Inca Mexican restaurant plans to redevelop the site into Bank of America, potentially moving the longtime Mexican restaurant from Fort Collins.
The building at 2413 S. College Ave., is owned by Steve Schroeder of Loveland. Concept plans filed with the City of Fort Collins show a 4,145 square foot bank building with parking, a patio and an ATM.
A concept plan review is the first step in the development review process and no final decision has been made.
The 4.2-acre site on the west side of South College Avenue, just north of West Drake Road, is for sale for $8.8 million and marketed by Van Hull Commercial. It is adjacent to the former Kmart property which King Soopers is redeveloping into a new grocery store.

Schroeder referred all questions to realtor Brad Van Hull, who was unavailable for comment.
Inca owner Mario Gutierrez said he was aware of the potential for redevelopment and was talking with his landlord about finding a new location for the restaurant. Inca has been a staple among Mexican food options in Fort Collins for 20 years.
Bank of America is expanding its footprint beyond its ATM in Rigden Farm stores to a new brick-and-mortar building in Front Range Village on Harmony Road. Bank of America announced in 2019 plans to expand into northern Colorado as part of a 14-bank expansion into the state.
