Steamboat Springs City planners will review tonight the next in an increasingly long line of large-scale, mixed-use downtown development projects.
The Steamboat Springs Planning Commission is scheduled to conduct a public review and hearing for The Victoria, a proposed development at Lincoln Avenue and 10th Street, currently the site of Rocky Mountain Wine and Liquor Co. Plans for the 32,650-square-foot, three-story Victoria building include seven residential units, 6,605 square feet of retail or restaurant space, 7,700 square feet of office space, underground parking and streetscape improvements. According to a city planning report, one additional residential unit will be provided off-site to comply with the city's inclusionary zoning requirements.
The Victoria features one- and two-story residences on the building's second and third floors, ranging in size from 1,050 to 2,500 square feet.
The project applicant is Wescoin L.P. of Steamboat, owned by Steve and Denise Peterson. Matt Wagar of Moon Hill Design is the project's architect.
"We're hoping to break ground early next spring," Denise Peterson said in July.
The Victoria could become another significant development in downtown Steamboat. Earlier this month, the Steamboat Springs City Council approved The Olympian, a 41,100-square-foot commercial and residential building to be constructed on the northwest corner of Fifth and Yampa streets. Howelsen Place at Seventh Street and Alpenglow at Sixth Street are also approved, large-scale developments slated for construction on Lincoln Avenue.
Tonight's commission meeting also includes reviews of a proposed warehouse at Betterview Business Park on 13th Street and a remodel to a building in Riverside Plaza west of downtown, for a motor-sports store called Planet Power Sports.
