It’s Happening — New Development in Snowmass

The ink now dry on the deed, East West Partners and Aspen Skiing Company are well down the line with their plans for the completion of the next phase of Base Village in Snowmass. John Calhoun, director of sales and marketing for East West, met with our office recently and assured us that the day after the ski season ends on April 17, we’ll definitely see at least a “dude with a shovel” out on the gondola plaza, soon to be followed by a huge construction crew getting started on four different projects. By summer, big cranes will be visible from throughout the Village; and, by fall, we’ll see all the buildings going vertical. Certainly, by next ski season, our visitors will be well aware that this long-delayed development is back on track. Continue reading

Base Village Approvals Good for Market, Study Shows

If history repeats itself, the Snowmass real estate market should react favorably to the recent approval of Base Village, according to a study conducted by broker Tara Turner of Berkshire Hathaway Home Services Aspen Snowmass Properties.

For years, the sluggishness in the Snowmass market has been attributed to the stalled Base Village, the 1.1 million sq ft mixed-use project that abruptly halted construction in 2009. It’s something Tara says she’s been telling her clients for so long she started to wonder if she could prove it.

So she did Continue reading

Base Village Masterplan June 2015

What’s Happening With Base Village? A Guide

Snowmass Village officials are having quite the busy summer, as they are neck deep in an intense and condensed review of an application to amend approvals for Related Colorado’s Base Village development. But apart from those involved — and a good-sized room full of interested observers — most people’s eyes glaze over at the mention of Base Village, a seemingly endless process that has gone through dramatic changes since its original approval in 2004.

Most recently, the transportation aspects of the Base Village plan, including a once-controversial roundabout, have been the focus. But instead of going into the nitty gritty of the most recent meeting, we’ve put together an overview of the process, Continue reading

A Plan for Base Village

On October 15, Related Colorado met one of the first of nearly two dozen milestones when it submitted to the Town of Snowmass Village its long-awaited application for the completion of Base Village. The plan, which is technically a PUD amendment, details changes to the remainder of the partially built project from its original approvals in 2004.

In a nutshell, the proposal strives for more diversity in its product mix than what was originally intended, including a pure hotel and fractional units to be developed by two new partners. Below the labeled diagram, you’ll find all the details about this Base Village plan (based on what we know so far), as well as a timeline for it that stretches out to 2019. Continue reading
