A Look at Park City’s New Construction
By Annette Velarde
The summer of 2015 may go down in history as the biggest year in Park City new home offerings ever recorded. No less than nine major projects will be offering the widest variety of styles, price points, and neighborhood characteristics ever seen. While they are each unique, what they all have in common
is the magnificent natural beauty and small-town ambiance that makes Park City so exceptional among mountain communities in the west.
PARK CITY IS EVOLVING INTO SOMETHING BETTER, SOMETHING IT HAS ALWAYS WANTED TO BE, AND THERE’S NO TURNING BACK.
When Regent Properties of California discovered the only unimproved acreage left in Deer Valley’s Silver Lake Village, they knew they had found something truly special. Their aspiration was to make this final real estate offering the best in all of Park City. This is a transcendent convergence of pristine nature, contemporary architecture, interior design, and meticulous construction in 14 homes and 40 condominiums. Ranging in size from three-to-six bedrooms, there is a perfect floor plan for every family. First-class amenities include the indoor/outdoor infinity pool, fitness center, elegant spa, fine dining, skier services, shuttle, and warm gathering spaces.
Stein Eriksen Lodge will be managing the property and amenities, as well as overseeing vacation guest rentals, which guarantees owners immeasurable peace of mind.
Just 50 years ago, the lands surrounding the Park City limits were mostly rolling hills used for livestock and agriculture. Since then, the community has done a hero’s job of protecting open space and few home sites that reflect this history are left.
The 6,700 acres of Victory Ranch’s natural splendor converged to produce an inner peace that only nature can provide.
Only a limited number of home sites in the magnificent Woodland Valley are being offered at Victory Ranch. This low-density community is designed to be a haven from the world’s stresses while providing the ultimate in exclusive luxury to its residents. The Conservancy at Victory Ranch guarantees that the land, water, and wildlife will be protected and cared for so owners’ future generations will benefit. Fed by mountain runoff and natural springs, Victory Ranch is steward of a private four- mile stretch of the Upper Provo River — a fisherman’s paradise and a naturalist’s utopia. Rees Jones was given a free hand in designing the golf course for the exclusive use of residents. The list of amenities is long, but the focal point is nature.
East Creek Ranch may be your last chance to purchase a home at an affordable price that honors Utah’s ranching roots.
Woodside Homes, one of the West’s most reputable developers, discovered a swath of unimproved land perfectly situated at the intersection of Highways I-80 and US-40. They envisioned a neighborhood for families who wanted to be close to the action of Park City, but raise their children in a rural setting where they could discover untouched nature in their own backyards. Ranging from 2,600-to-5,000 square feet there is a floor plan to suit everyone. The views of rugged mountains during the day and ski resort lights at night rival any in Park City.
Green-building practices are claimed by many, but sincerely practiced by few. However, this is definitely not the case with the Echo Spur project.
Located on sun-drenched Rossi Hill, just off Park City’s Historic Main Street, this neighborhood of seven custom, mountain modern residences optimizes the balance between sensible sustainability and contemporary luxury. Solar power, radiant heat (including driveways and decks), and superinsulation are integrated to minimize utility bills. Snowmelt is harvested off the Green Roof and recycled for irrigation, so the homeowner can utilize the roof as extra
space for entertaining or a place to enjoy the stunning views. The floor-to-ceiling windows and multiple decks make maximum use of the natural panoramas and provide a unique indoor/outdoor Old Town experience.
Floor plans ranging from 2,700-to-3,500 square feet eliminate wasted space while still providing everyone their privacy.
After years of anticipation, Park City Heights is delivering more than was ever expected.
Located at the intersection of Highways 40 and 248, it is at the front door of Park City, just minutes from Historic Main Street, shopping, and schools. Masterful artistry in design is the characteristic of the wide variety of floor plans, ranging from modern townhomes to luxury custom-built homes with price points to fit every budget. Finish options cover the gamut from ultra-sleek modern to cozy mountain rustic. However, the best feature of Park City Heights is the forethought given to making this a true neighborhood, not just another housing development. The streets are wide, curbed, and safe in anticipation of neighbors meeting up during evening walks and kids riding their bikes. Families will enjoy the beautiful community clubhouse, swimming pool and hot tub that will be available to only residents of Park City Heights. The neighborhood will also feature a 5.7-acre City Park.
More than any other development in the Park City area, The Colony fosters nature’s tranquility.With only 274 home sites on 4,600 acres, this community is the choice of those who view their private time as a precious commodity, when the worries of the world and public personas can be left behind. While situated nearer to Salt Lake International Airport, shopping, and Historic Main Street than several other ultra-luxury communities in the area, The Colony prioritizes its residents’ access to nature and peaceful living. When the 2015-2016 ski season opens, The Colony’s forest setting will offer ski- in/ski-out access to all of Vail’s Park City properties, which total over 7,300 skiable acres and feature the new Interconnect Gondola. As such, residents of the most serene development in Park City can immediately access the largest ski resort in North America.
There is no other private community that comes close to Promontory Club’s extraordinary amenities.This easy-access luxury community boasts two award-winning golf courses, state-of-the-art equestrian center, luxury spa, indoor and outdoor pools, tennis complex, and a fitness center. Members-only clubhouses offer attractions for the whole family such as a movie theatre, bowling, art studio, basketball arena, as well as fantastic dining. Adventures in the great outdoors may be arranged through the Promontory Outfitter’s Cabin. This is a jumping-off point for hiking, biking, camping, fly fishing, snowshoeing, backcountry skiing, rafting, and kayaking. All this and more are enjoyed by Promontory Residents to complement their lifestyle and breathtaking views of this welcoming community.
The Parkite, located in the heart of Historic Main Street, is a perfect example of evolving for the better.This collection of fifteen smart, über-modern condominiums are intended for those who love being in the center of the action so they can soak up the excitement of life as it happens. Park City’s world-renowned art, music, shopping, sports, and nightlife are literally just outside the front door.
The grand entrance, state-of-the-art design, and clean, sleek motif remind you of the world’s most cosmopolitan cities, but the character is small-town unpretentious and genuine. The rooftop gardens and cutting-edge technology speak to today’s priorities of quality over quantity. Responsible efficiency and sophisticated style hold equal importance. Whether a primary residence, second home, or accommodations for out-of-town guests, The Parkite is sure to be one of Park City’s most sought after addresses.
Park City is responsibly growing, becoming an even more wonderful community than ever before. These new developments exemplify the community’s commitment to welcoming everyone who wants to call this place home.
