What was once The Lionshead Inn during the 1970’s has returned as Lion, 310,789 square feet of luxury residential units and underground parking. OZ designed the building to act as a gateway to Lionshead Village, and to takes full advantage of the beautiful surroundings of the Vail Valley. The exterior design captures a modern take on the Bavarian manor house with a stone base, natural wood trusses, and modern lines blending the mountain getaway with an urban-feel in synch with the Lionshead community. Materials such as copper, stucco, and natural cedar impart European styling and are reflective of forty years of Vail tradition.
Large windows in each unit take advantage of the natural surroundings providing expansive views of the valley. Interior comforts are reflected in fine design details such as open floor plans and luxury materials. The residencies are clean and contemporary, with plenty of natural light and vaulted ceilings.Only steps away from the gondola for premier ski-season access and near several hiking trails, fly-fishing, and tennis courts, Lion is active year round. It represents mountain living at its finest, providing a mixture of spacious units and with amenities that engage, restore, and enliven.
