Aspen Ski Co. in preliminary discussions with new owners of Pan and Fork Mobile Home Park about a potential partnership.
ASPEN AND BASALT REAL ESTATE — The new owner of the Pan and Fork Mobile Home Park envisions building an upscale hotel or lodge as part of the redevelopment of the property. The Roaring Fork Community Development Corp. (CDC) is looking into the feasibility of developing a 75- to 80-room hotel that would be a “three-and-a-half star” property, according to CDC President Michael McVoy. Dave Bellack, Skico senior vice president and general counsel, downplayed its role in development of a hotel at this point. “There’s definitely not a certainty but there’s a possibility” of the Skico getting involved in the project, Bellack said … A critical first step in redevelopment will be finding alternative housing for the 75 or so residents of the 38 trailers on the property. The Basalt town code requires CDC and the town government to replace the 38 affordable housing units being displaced.
