Wildhorse Homestead and Deer Park Road Corp. developments take shape
Steamboat Springs — Construction is abuzz in the Wildhorse Meadows area of Mount Werner, where five residences are nearing completion and a massive office building is beginning to take shape.
The first part of Homestead at Wildhorse includes five three- and four-bedroom residences in two buildings and is scheduled for completion along Bangtail Way in June or July, according to Garrett Simon, partner of Meriwether Companies, a development firm tasked with handling the design, construction and sales of the Homestead residences for the property owner, Real Capital Solutions.
One of the five units is under contract with a family from Texas who was already familiar with the area and was sold on the numerous amenities of the development, including easy access to the Wildhorse Gondola and an athletic club, according to Colleen de Jong, broker with Steamboat Sotheby’s International Realty and co-listing agent for the homes, along with Arelene Zopf of Steamboat Village Brokers.
“Access to the gondola is a huge selling point,” said de Jong, who noted that there’s been steady interest in the development, mostly from those interested in a second home, including people who already live elsewhere in the Wildhorse area.
Construction broke ground in August on the homes, which range from 1,700 to 3,100 square feet, and will embody a “mountain modern” design with rich details and lots of natural elements, de Jong said.
Drywall is beginning to go up inside the buildings and interior trim and exterior siding will be added over the next couple of months, Simon said.
A second phase of construction with two more buildings is expected to break ground early in the summer, as the first phase is completed, he said.
Prices for the remaining four residences are listed as ranging from $1.28 million to $1.6 million, depending on size.
When completed, Homesteads will have 17 residences in five buildings.
Nearby on Bangtail Way, offices for a Steamboat Springs hedge fund will soon take shape.
The foundation is now complete for the 30,000-square-foot, four-story Deer Park Road Corp. offices and a ground floor restaurant, according to project manager Brent Pearson of Resort Ventures West.
The building is being toted as the largest office space in Steamboat Springs and will house investment managers when completed, an operation that epitomizes the virtualization of the ski town, according to project developers.
Steel beams to support the four levels of the building will go vertical in May, according to Pearson, and passersby can expect to see the building structure pop up quickly. The office is scheduled for completion by the end of 2015.
“After a difficult fall — it was very wet — we’re on schedule,” he said.
Construction is being completed by HLCC Contractors of Steamboat for both the office building and the Homestead development.
