Grand County Real Estate: Bear Crossing construction on schedule
August 15, 2008
Construction of the new Bear Crossing town home development in Winter Park is proud to announce the completion of the first of 16 town homes. The construction team has maintained an on time schedule, despite some of the unique challenges presented by the mountainous terrain.
“We’ve encountered massive boulders on the construction site that we’ve removed and have incorporated into the property’s dramatic landscape,” said Tony Solo, Bear Crossing’s developer. “By using the natural materials the site has provided, we’ve also been able to save a significant amount of time and money otherwise required to truck-in similar materials for use on the project. In addition to the use of the boulders, a majority of the construction work has also been performed on 20 to 30 percent grades, but our team has overcome these challenges and is maintaining our
schedule and target dates, and we’ve already welcomed homeowners to their new residences during the past 12 months.”
Bear Crossing recently announced a second phase of sales which will include quarter share ownerships starting under $200,000. During Bear Crossing’s original introduction in 2005, more than $26 million worth of town homes were sold in less than 180 minutes. “Bear Crossing has become one of the most sought-after new resort communities in Colorado, and we’re looking forward to commencing with our second phase of sales,” said Anthony Solo, the developer of Bear Crossing. “Based on the shrinking number of affordable options in Colorado mountain resort areas, we believe our ‘quarter-share’ opportunity provides a great price point for people who are interested in owning a Colorado mountain home.”
Bear Crossing (named after Solo spotted a mother bear and her cubs playing on the property) is located on a seven acre site, approximately one mile above Winter Park’s main street and backing-up to Arapaho National Forest. It includes town homes ranging in size from 1,950 square feet to 2,600 square feet, with features including:
– High volume ceilings, allowing for double-height glass.
– Double master suites.
– High-end finishes, including hardwood floors, fireplace, solid wood cabinetry, granite counter tops, hot tubs, high vaulted ceilings, and spacious open plans.
– Fully furnished and professionally decorated interiors.
– Views of surrounding mountain ranges.
– A low-density site, buffered by trees and bordered by Arapaho National Forest.
