Snowmass Base Village is the new core of the Snowmass community. With five project phases, the full build-out features 100,000 sf of retail development, 650 residential units, an Aqua Center, a transit center, underground parking for residents and skiers, a central loading dock and mechanical plant, and a reception building with bus and car drop-off. The first phase included facilitating the lengthy entitlement process with the Town of Snowmass, coordinating the overall site development including public plazas and gondola bases, and developing the architectural character of three initial buildings for PUD submittal. Snowmass Base Village was one of the first projects to undergo the LEED Neighborhood Development process and was in the pilot program. As the Village grows, this careful planning will provide a strong base for successful future development.
