New Old Town Development in Park City Aims for Green

If you're just itching to score some choice property in what is to become one of the largest ski resort towns in the United States, look no further than Park City's Old Town neighborhood. Now that Vail Resorts has taken ownership of PCMR and plans to connect Park City Mountain Resort with Canyons next summer, even more skiers and riders plan to visit Park City in the coming seasons. With this in mind, a brand-new development, billed as Park City's greenest, is taking shape right in Old Town. Let's take a tour through Echo Spur, the latest "mountain modern" building craze in Utah's fanciest ski town.

Modern architecture is everywhere in ski towns these days, and with 7 new units ranging in size from 2,700 to 3,500 square feet, Echo Spur fits the bill. Priced from $2.7 to $3.5 million, potential buyers get environmentally-friendly amenities like superinsulation, rain water harvesting, and green roofs that make the homes 80% more energy efficient than the typical home.

There's also your standard mountain luxury features like heated driveways and patios (yes please!), open floor plans, and mountain views. Throw in an added incentive of a 5% discount to the first buyer and the fact that 2% of lot sales will be donated to the Park City Foundation and the Kimball Art Center, and you can feel good about your mountain footprint.

At the same time, these aren't homes that your standard ski bum will ever be able to afford. So tell us, Curbediverse, what do you think of the greening of Park City? Would you throw down for one of these homes?
