An application for the newest big hotel project at the Canyons Resort has been received by Summit County’s planning staff.
During his regular report to KPCW, Development Director Pat Putt said they’ve just received the application for the Pendry Hotel, to be located in the Canyons Village.
That comes after the Canyons SPA Amended Master Plan was okayed by the county over a year ago.
The Pendry has sometimes been called “The baby Montage.” Putt said some of the density numbers haven’t quite been fixed yet.
“The next time we talk in early March I’ll be able to give you the specifics on that. I know it’s over 100,000 square feet it’ll be a big facility but again it’s been contemplated through that master planning process. Part of that master planning process was taking a look at what we tend to refer to as the building value metrics the building size, how it sits in relationship to the other structures around it. At that point in time about a year and a half ago everybody seemed to be satisfied with that. Now it’s going to be sort of that administrative review. Meaning we’re going to be taking a look to make sure it meets those requirements, doesn’t exceed the allowed square footages, meets the height, meets the parking.”
He said the Pendry could get to the Snyderville Planning Commission as early as March.
On another item, he said that the Rasmussen Place mixed residential/commercial project proposed by Peter Corroon along Rasmussen Road got an approval last year. But it hasn’t moved forward and the approval could lapse this spring.
“I believe the sale of the property to Mr. Corroon and his partners was contingent on approval of a project which he ended up receiving. The sale just never closed. It was a good project, I think the planning commission was pleased with the design of it. It certainly met the necessary standards of the code. I think unfortunately it was just a matter of the buyer not being able to reach terms with the seller. We haven’t had any further conversations with the property owner. We haven’t had any new proposals from outside parties on that piece of property. So right now, we have a rural residentially zoned piece of ground. Will something happen in the future? Likely, but we haven’t seen any proposals recently.”
