Construction has begun on a small luxury residential development in Park City, Utah’s, highly coveted Old Town neighborhood. One of the last remaining multi-lot developments in the historic district, the new Echo Spur development is walkable to the town’s shops, galleries, and restaurants as well as the city’s transit center.
The plan encompasses seven “mountain modern” homes situated on a hillside along a private street. The dwellings are projected to reduce utility costs by up to 90 percent compared to a traditionally built home, says developer Sean Kelleher, thanks to solar and geothermal systems, superior insulation, and water management strategies. Other eco-friendly features include rainwater harvesting and remotely controlled lighting, temperature, and security systems.
“Our goal with Echo Spur is to promote the fact that it makes practical and financial sense to own a sustainable home that reduces the monthly costs of homeownership,” he says.
Echo Spur is within easy walking distance of Historic Main Street and is within one mile of world-class ski areas Park City Mountain Resort and Deer Valley Resort and three miles from Canyons Resort. Homes will range in size from 2,700 to 3,500 square feet with versatile layout options that include three to four bedrooms, state-of-the art gourmet kitchens, rooftop decks, and outdoor entertaining areas with hot tubs and gas fireplaces.
Echo Spur homes are offered by Berkhshire Hathaway HomeServices Utah Properties and range from $2.7 to $3.5 million. The development coincides with a new dynamic in Park City, says Kelleher.
“With Vail now a major player in Park City, and their plans to create the largest ski resort in North America by connecting Park City Mountain Resort and the Canyons, we’re likely to see a steady increase in tourism and therefore real estate demand,” he says.
