NW Grand Junction has been slow to be developed, but that is about to change
NW Grand Junction MLS boundaries include the area north of I-70, between Grand Junction and Fruita and a small section south of I-70 that encompasses the major shopping areas, the Mesa Mall, Canyon View Park, Canyon View Medical Plaza and the new Community Hospital. The northwest area has been a mix of single family homes, farms, mini estates, commercial and industrial. A larger area that has been a thriving agricultural region of pasture, hay and corn is now dwindling due to land being turned into subdivisions to meet home demand and increasing prices.
