Blog

My blog is designed and structured to keep readers abreast of what's happening in our area that impacts real estate and particularly luxury real estate. I plan to update it weekly, or more frequently to the extent breaking news warrants doing so. For example, property information and updates occur frequently, and rather than waiting for a particular developer's website to be updated, I try and confer with those developers and let my readers in on some insights before the information is widely available. With my prior career in commercial real estate, I know how valuable timely information can be to a prospective purchaser. I will keep these blogs short and to the point so readers can get right into the heart of the subject matter.

 

Canyons Village Master Plan Update - Extension of 'Ski Out' Access

By Mark Sletten
Nov 25, 2016

Park City’s new Canyons Village Master plan includes extending a ski run through the proposed newer development to link the residential and lodging buildings with ‘Ski Out’ access. This new run is envisioned to run at the far southern edge of the base area, and link nearly to Red Pine Road...a boon to existing property owners in the area, and a huge asset to the development parcel at the southeast corner of the village.

Today was supposed to be opening day, but Mother Nature has not been kind to snow-making efforts until yesterday!  Hopefully this cold snap will allow Park City Mountain to make enough snow to get a few runs open for next weekend...

Treasure Hill Development Update - Part 2

TREASURE HILL DEVELOPMENT UPDATE - Part 2

 

 

The Staff Report from the November 9th meeting of the Park City Planning Commission is telling and reflects why many are opposed to the scale of the development as proposed, particularly as compared to the original 1986 approval (that’s right 1986 – it’s been around that long). Here are a few excerpts from that Staff Report:

“Staff continues to have concerns with compatibility of the development along the Empire Avenue and Lowell Avenue Switchback at building 4A.” As you will see in the rendering, that height as proposed is 90’ above grade.

“The project does not step with the natural topography of the site as shown on the Sweeney Property Master Plan. As discussed previously, staff finds the project as designed is not in compliance with the concept approved by the City Council during the 1985 Master Plan approval.” This illustration demonstrates the cuts that would be required on Treasure Hill itself to accommodate the recent proposal. By way of orientation, this location is just under the Town Lift, essentially right at the bend where Lowell Avenue and Empire Avenue make the horseshoe turn.

This application will be here for some time to come. It has become a rallying cry for many Old Town residents in particular, although residents from all areas of town are concerned and involved. I’ll keep you posted as the application winds its way through City Hall.

While most of us anticipate the excitement of the upcoming ski season, it is nice to enjoy the relative quiet and peacefulness of Park City before the season hits!

Canyons Village Master Plan Update...Aquatic Center

By Mark Sletten
Nov 15, 2016

One of the exciting aspects of the proposed Canyons Village Master Plan is to build a combination public/private year round aquatic center. This center is envisioned to be more of a recreational ‘fun’ pool rather than a lap and exercise facility. The current proposed location is directly north of the Silverado Lodge. The hope is that a facility of this type will draw more of the local resident crowd who will then stay in the area to shop , dine and recreate!

Canyons Village Master Plan - Conference Space!

By Mark Sletten
Nov 11, 2016

The new Canyons Village Master Plan proposal calls for building the largest conference space in the Park City area. The idea is to draw larger conventions, as well as have a large public meeting area for Park City. This building is proposed to be built at the northern edge of the base village, north of the Orange Bubble Express Chair and the Frostwood Gondola.

Canyons Village Master Plan Update - Year Round Desirability Envisioned!

By Mark Sletten
Nov 04, 2016

The vision for Park City’s Canyons Base Village Master Plan emphasizes making the village desirable to visit for visitors as well as the local population...the key to year round sustainability. One of the main concepts is to level out the base area to make the village very pedestrian friendly with an easy flow. This is more conducive to shopper traffic, and very attractive to prospective lease holders to locate retail shops on site. They have included short and long term parking at the immediate base area, as well as more convenient public transportation stops.
