Tenants move into 42-unit Skiview Place rental complex this summer

— The first multi-unit rental housing under construction since the economic downturn is nearing completion, and an initial group of new tenants for the 42-unit Skiview Place are expected to move in July 1.

The complex, at the corner of Skyview Lane and Whistler Road, has taken shape over the last several months, and contractors for Brinkman Construction are nearly finished with the first of two buildings in the complex.

About 60 percent of the 33 one-bedroom and nine two-bedroom units between the complex’s two buildings have been pre-leased, according to Paul Brinkam, CEO and co-founder of Brinkman Partners, the project developer and the buildings’ owner and property manager.

“The buildings both have spectacular views of the mountain and the valley and of Emerald,” Brinkman said.

Tenants for the complex’s nearly complete north building, which is comprised exclusively of one-bedroom units, will move in July 1, followed by tenants in the complex’s south building, who will move in Aug. 1.

One-bedrooms are renting for $1,000 to $1,200, depending on their placement in the building and views, while two bedrooms are renting for $1,400 to $1,500, Brinkman said.

While both one- and two-bedrooms have been pre-leased, Brinkman said the company chose to build more one-bedroom units.

“The demand is in one-bedrooms,” Brinkman said.

The complex allow pets in every unit, but the size and number of animals will be restricted.

A dog run will be constructed on the north side of the property to accommodate owners.

“People love having their pet, but they may not even have a location to take them to the bathroom,” Brinkman said. “It will be small, but it will accommodate the apartments.”

Contractors are busy completing interior trim and exterior siding on the complex’s north building, and a one-bedroom model unit has been completed to show prospective renters.

The final touches on the complex will include site work like parking lots, sidewalks and on-site utilities, Brinkman said.

Brinkman said the fact that Skiview Place is being developed, constructed and managed by the same company is unique and has allowed for better communication and a more seamless approach to development.

“We’re the developer, we’re the contractor and we’re doing all the leasing,” Brinkman said. “Our construction team sits 10 feet away from the property manager, who sits 10 feet away from the developer. With our model, it allows us to be more creative and cost effective.”
