The Related Companies presented their new plans for the buildout of the Base Village, Snowmass Village’s long recession stalled real estate project that was to revitalize (in 2011) the dated resort bringing it into the 21st century.
The main components of their new plan are:
- Aspen Ski Corp purchase construction of a new middle income Limelight Hotel on Lot 2. It will be a 102-room hotel much like Aspen’s downtoewn Limelight, also owned by the ski company.
- Sunrise Co, the owners of Dancing Bear Fractional Residences in downtown Aspen, will build a private residence club on Lot 3
- Relocate the planned aquatic center to the heart of Base Village
- Snowmass Discovery Center Location – the discovery in 2010 of prehisotric monmoths and mastodon remains and ecosystem as one of the pre-eminent discoveries of these beasts has created a new tourist opportunity for the resort. The Denver Museum of Nature and Science will be contributing a full mastedon skeleton for the Center.
