In summary, the application proposes the following:

LOT 1: This lot was the initial Phase 1A potion of the project previously approved and built to house Buildings 1 (Children’s Center), 2ABC (Capital Peak Lodge), and Buildings 3ABC and 3DE for retail/restaurant spaces. The initial construction also included the three level garage of 619 parking spaces and the transit center primarily located on Lots 2 and 3. No changes are proposed on Lot 1.

LOT 2: This lot was previously approved to house four buildings (4AB, 5, 9AB and 9C, all planned on top of the garage podium) and initially envisioned as the Phase 2B portion of the project, since modified by the vesting extension agreement pursuant to Ordinance No. 3, Series of 2014.

Building 4AB changes: This building is proposed to be re-programmed to reduce the number of condominium units from 4 to 3 (with the same number of bedrooms at 10) and to increase the commercial square footage on the village level from 4,159 sq. ft. to 4,695 sq. ft. The size, mass and scale of the building is similar to previous approvals.

Building 5 changes: This building is proposed for the conversion of 57 wholly owned condominiums with 119 bedrooms to 102 hotel studio units (less than 500 sq. ft. each) and the creation of 15 wholly owned penthouse-style units with 32 bedrooms on the upper 5th level. The hotel is planned to be accessed for check-in on the lower P3 level of the garage. The proposal includes 2,100 sq. ft. of conference space on the lower level. The Snowmass Mountain Club (now proposed at 4,622 sq. ft.), previously approved in Building 8 for 5,210 sq. ft. (on Lot 3), is proposed for relocation to Building 5. It would also replace the previously programmed retail space of 6,433 sq. ft. and increase the skier related facilities in Building 5 from 2,745 to 4,622 sq. ft. The Upper Village Level will feature a new restaurant outlet totaling 1,400 SF.

Also, two employee units (with 7 bedrooms and common areas) versus three employee housing units (2, one-bedrooms and 1, three-bedroom) on the lower level are proposed as rental versus for-sale housing. The size, mass and scale of the building remains similar to previous approval although there is a slight increase on one of the structural roof forms, but under the previous chimney height cap previously established. 

Separate but adjacent to Building 5, the application proposes a permanent facility by the gondola area for the overnight storage of ski equipment.

Building 9AB and 9C: These buildings and the retail square footage of 2,512 square feet are planned for removal. This elimination would make room for an outdoor plaza area with play area, fountains and winter ice skating.

LOT 3: This lot was previously approved as Phase 1B of the project to house three buildings (Building 6 on the garage podium, and Buildings 7 [Arrival Center] and 8 in front of the garage and the transit center).

Building 6: This building is proposed for reprogramming from 9 wholly owned condominiums with 22 bedrooms to a Community Purpose space. The building is designed as a split level with the main entrance fronting directly onto the village level and the second floor opening to the proposed outdoor plaza. It also proposes a reduction of the proposed restaurant from 2,555 sq. ft. to 1,201 sq. ft. which will likely contain a coffee shop. An outdoor amenity space is also planned above the restaurant level. It is proposed that construction completion will result in a “shell” structure with tenant finish by the Town or a non-profit entity that may occupy the space.

Building 7 (Arrival Center): This building is proposed to increase the number of condominium units from 8 units to 11 units and proposes that a minimum of 3 of the condos be converted to fractional units. The number of bedrooms would be increased from 23 to 31 bedrooms. The retail/restaurant space (increasing from 785 to 825 sq. ft.) at the southwest corner of the building on the village level would remain. The number of employee units would increase from 2 to 4 with the relocation of the 2 employee units from Building 8. These employee units are planned as rentals. The floor space for the two additional employee units is being accommodated by filling in the clerestory atrium entryway space accessed from the north side of the building. 

The lower level great hall lobby area will remain as the central check in location for Base Village. The residential lobby for these units is also on the village level. The height of the building is proposed to increase the maximum height to accommodate the relocated residential sq. ft. from Building 6 to this building. The maximum building height is proposed to increase by 8 feet.

Building 8: Building 8 is proposed to undergo the most significant changes in the amendment application.
The number of units in this building would increase from 27 to 30 condominium units, including a minimum of 8 fractional units (four at 3-bedroom size and 4 at 1-bedroom size). The overall number of bedrooms would increase from 54 to 102. The central check-in for Buildings 7 and 8 is proposed to be located in this building. The outdoor pool and amenity spaces on the lower level are proposed for removal, to be replaced by the central check-in and nominal guest parking (4 spots) and drive through area for valet services together with landscape buffering. The Snowmass Mountain Club of 5,210 sq. ft. is proposed for removal, to be relocated to Building 5, and replaced by units and indoor amenity space. 

The medical clinic in Building 8 would remain (and to be completed in 2018) but the commercial service space within the building reduces from 10,462 sq. ft. to 5,998 sq. ft.. In lieu thereof, a roof top amenity area is proposed. 

The retail/restaurant space of 3,549 sq. ft. on the village level is planned for removal, to be replaced by an indoor amenity space. The height of the building is proposed to increase the maximum height to accommodate the relocated residential sq. ft. from Building 6 to this building. The maximum building height is proposed to increase by 3 feet.

The mountain club that was originally proposed for building 8 has moved to the Limelight building (building 5). Because of this, there is no longer any commercial space planned for building 8.

The ambulance pick up location is planned for directly behind building 8, and a widened fire lane has been added for other emergency and transportation services.

LOTS 4 and 6: Lot 4, originally part of Phase 2B, was previously approved to house the Aqua Center with a 3,500 sq. ft. facility. No commercial and residential development entitlements were previously approved specifically for Lot 4. Lot 6 was previously approved for Building 10AB with a two-level underground parking garage with separate check-in area as part of Phase 3 of the development.

Aqua Center: This facility is proposed for removal. The application now proposes a combination of Lots 4 and 6, with Lot 6 previously entitled for residential development.

Building 10AB: This building’s size horizontally in plan-view would expand from 90 to 110 wholly owned condominium units and spread beyond Lot 6 onto Lot 4 next to the ski-back trail. A new commercial component of 6,081 sq. ft. would be introduced, but this would likely not be phased in for several years. The parking facilities on site would be increased, including the number of parking spaces, exceeding the minimum parking rate standards previously granted. The mass, scale and heights of Building 10AB are proposed to be reduced in height, but will be subject to further evaluation during the Preliminary Plan stage, including its revised development parameters for both lots and any variations that might be needed, in particular for Lot 4.

LOT 5: This lot is planned for Building 11 to include 50 wholly owned condominiums with 102 bedrooms, undergrounding parking and separate check-in. This building is proposed to decrease the number of condominiums to 25 units. The number of bedrooms would be decreased to 83 bedrooms. Two new employee units are now proposed in this building. The size, mass and scale of the building is similar to previous approvals.

LOT 7: This lot is planned for Building 12 to include 41 wholly owned condominiums with 75 bedrooms, undergrounding parking and separate check-in. This building is proposed to decrease the number of condominiums to 20 units. The number of bedrooms would be decreased to 66 bedrooms. The size, mass and scale of the building is similar to previous approvals.

LOT 8: This lot is planned for the Building 13B Viceroy Hotel annex. This building is proposed to decrease the number of condominium from 67 to 49 units. The number of bedrooms would be decreased from 108 to 107 bedrooms. The number of employee units would decrease from 8 to 7 units. The size, mass and scale of the building is similar to previous approvals.

LOT 9: This lot was approved and built for the Building 13A Viceroy Hotel containing 152 wholly owned condominium lodge units and two employee housing units. A spa facility exists on the property together with two restaurants. A two level parking structure exists beneath both Buildings 13A and 13B containing 206 parking spaces serving both Buildings 13A and 13B. No changes are proposed to this building.
