Sloan Construction nears completion of Park Avenue Lofts

The future Boardwalk Lofts project will be constructed on the space currently occupied by Grand Lake Lanes. Officials from Sloan Construction said demolition work on the property will begin once the planning and financing portion of the project is completed.

Construction season in the high country is well underway and Boulder based firm Sloan Construction is planning for a busy summer in Grand Lake.

Sloan Construction's President, David Sloan, provided a quick rundown of the four projects his business will be working on this year in Grand County.

PARK AVENUE LOFTS

Sloan's Park Avenue Lofts project is nearing completion with flooring and interior trim working currently ongoing. Sloan said the project is in the "home stretch" and said he expects to obtain a certificate of occupancy within "the next month or so".

The Park Avenue Lofts project includes four commercial units and eight one-bedroom condominium units with dedicated garage spaces. All the units are contained within a single two-story building. Sloan Construction is serving as the developer for the Park Avenue Lofts project and is both a partial owner as well as general contractor for the facility.

BOARDWALK LOFTS

Sloan Construction's largest project in the area, the Boardwalk Lofts project, remains on hold as of mid-May Sloan said. According to Sloan the project has obtained the appropriate permits from the Town of Grand Lake but is still undergoing preconstruction planning as the firm secures all necessary financing for the three-story building.

The Boardwalk Lofts project will eventually occupy the space currently occupied by Grand Lake Lanes. Demolition work on that building will begin once all the preconstruction planning and financing work has been completed according to Sloan.

"We are just waiting on all the planning and financing to be in order before we pull the trigger," Sloan said.

The building will be a combination of commercial and residential spaces. The ground level will contain commercial units as well as a parking area with commercial units facing the boardwalk and parking spaces to the rear of the building. An eight-lane bowling alley and some residential units are slated for the second level while the third level will exclusively feature residential spaces.

Sloan said plans for the building's construction includes plans to clip a corner of the building to take advantage of a shared courtyard space with Rocky Mountain Repertory Theatre. Sloan Construction is both a partial owner and contractor for the Boardwalk Lofts project similar to the Park Avenue Lofts project.

REMODEL WORK

Sloan Construction is working on two remodel projects this summer in Grand Lake. Sloan referred to the two projects as the 828 Grand Avenue project, the address of Hub Coffee and Cones, often referred to simply as The Hub, and the Stalk Market project respectively.

Unlike the two lofts projects Sloan is working on the company is serving only as a contractor for remodel work at 828 Grand Avenue and at the Stalk Market. Sloan is not a partial owner for either of those projects. Sloan said both projects entail adding additional space for residential units as well as commercial space.
