PARK CITY, UT - Canyons Village Management Association (CVMA) and Columbus Pacific Development (CPD) announced that construction on Canyons Village Employee Housing began. A public-private partnership between CVMA, CPD and Summit County, this first-of-its-kind venture will accommodate the growing need for employee housing within Canyons Village at Park City Mountain.
Residents will enjoy a year-round, conveniently located and modern environment specifically designed for employees and their families. The Canyons Village Specially Planned Area (SPA) is in the midst of an exciting evolution and today marks a great leap forward in elevating the experience for its employees, guests and stakeholders, providing an unrivaled experience as a world-class community.
Canyons Village Employee Housing is located on 7.7 acres in the Lower Village (parcel LV6-A), adjacent to the Cabriolet lift, Canyons Village Transit Hub and holes 14 and 15 of Canyons Golf. President & CEO of CVMA, Brian Madacsi, said, "This core initiative and essential amenity will attract and retain high caliber employees for Canyons Village. It is a significant step as we continue to provide an unrivaled, world-class experience for our members and guests. We are eager to begin this project with such great partners."
The project will accommodate over 1,107 employees across 789 bedrooms, seven buildings, four unit types and three distinct and flexible living arrangements. The project will accommodate single, double and triple occupancy bedrooms and an innovative 10-bedroom co-living floor plan, in addition to traditional two- to four-bedroom apartments and townhomes.
"We are thrilled to be part of the solution to one of the most critical issues facing Park City today: attainable, quality housing for local residents and employees," stated Tony Tyler, a partner with CPD. "This project is a visionary collaboration with CVMA and Summit County and delivers a competitive advantage for Canyons Village to offer employees a place to live, work and play in Park City."
With access to convenient transportation offerings such as the free public transit system, Canyons Village Connect and the Cabriolet lift that whisks individuals into the village center, this affordable project will be a game changer for the many employers within Canyons Village, including Park City Mountain and the numerous year-round lodging, retail and dining establishments. "Summit County is excited to partner on this innovative and necessary effort. Providing a unique opportunity such as this aligns perfectly with our goals of creating an enhanced environment for employees to live and work, as well as providing easy access to public transportation. This project is instrumental in the evolution of Canyons Village and Summit County," said Tom Fisher, Summit County Manager.
