On the Market for Nov. 16

OSP near topping out

— Doug Beall, vice president of development for the Steamboat Ski & Resort Corp., shared news Wednesday about the progress of One Steamboat Place, the large luxury condominium project poised to expand and modernize Gondola Plaza.

Beall told an audience at the Steamboat Grand that the building is scheduled to top out Dec. 1 and that the two large construction cranes dominating the skyline there should come down shortly after. Expect to see a model unit at OSP early in 2009, Beall added.

Beall also told his audience that his company is looking closely at its ability to add a new wing onto the Steamboat Grand.

The Grand, which opened in 2002, is pre-approved for an addition on the south end, farthest from the entrance to Ski Time Square, but the clock is ticking.

“Grand Hotel Phase II is vested (with city planning), but the permit expires in 2011,” Beall said. “We’re taking a wait-and-see attitude right now.”

The recovery of the local real estate market will influence any decision on the timing of adding onto the Grand, he added.
