Copper Mountain Resort Announces Copper Point Townhomes Project
- Copper Point Townhomes project moving forward in 2016
- 15 townhomes being built specifically for Summit County workforce
- Construction expected to begin May 2016
COPPER MOUNTAIN, Colo. – March 29, 2016 – Copper Mountain Resort is excited to announce plans for the development of Copper Point Townhomes, a deed-restricted workforce housing project located in the resort’s East Village. The goal of this project is to provide affordable, permanent residences for members of the Summit County workforce. The average purchase price of a unit in Copper Point Townhomes is not to exceed 110% of the Area Median Income (AMI).
“We wouldn’t have a successful year-round resort without our workforce,” said Gary Rodgers, President and General Manager of Copper Mountain Resort. “With the development of this project, we are aiming to help area employees call Summit County home for the long term.”
Fifteen 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom townhomes with an oversized one-car garage per unit are expected to be built. The development site will consist of 3 triplex and 3 duplex townhome buildings plus a community shed and shared lawn area for outdoor gatherings.
The location of the development is in close proximity to a Summit Stage bus stop, the Summit County Recreation Path and the Copper Mountain Transportation Center. The townhomes will also provide spectacular views of Copper Mountain Resort, the Ten Mile Range, East Lake and the Copper Creek Golf Course.
The project was unanimously approved by the Summit County Planning Department and Ten Mile Planning Commission on March 10, 2016. Copper Mountain Resort plans to break ground in May 2016 with the first homes ready for occupancy in December 2016. Building design is being completed by Arapahoe Architects, P.C. of Breckenridge, Colorado.
Applications for these homes are currently being accepted by the Summit Combined Housing Authority. Stay tuned to summithousing.us for more information as it becomes available.
