By: Jennifer Goodman

Construction has begun on one of the last multi-lot sites in the town’s historic district. Construction has begun on a small luxury residential development in Park City, Utah’s, highly coveted Old Town neighborhood. One of the last remaining multi-lot developments in the historic district, the new Echo Spur development is walkable to the town’s shops, galleries, and restaurants as well as the city’s transit center. The plan encompasses seven “mountain modern” homes situated on a hillside along a private street. The dwellings are projected to reduce utility costs by up to 90 percent compared to a traditionally built home, says developer Sean Kelleher, thanks to solar and geothermal systems, superior insulation, and water management strategies. Other eco-friendly features include rainwater harvesting and remotely controlled lighting, temperature, and security systems. [click here to read more]

Go West Development Updates

The future is now when the forwardthinking team at Go West, led by Preston and Lori Campbell, embarks on one of its one-of-a-kind residential masterpieces in and around Park City. When Go West Development built the first “modern” house in Park City as a spec, the naysayers had a field day. Why would anyone in ski country find such a non-traditional style appealing? A decade later, with mountain contemporary now a staple of the high-end residential scene, Go West principals Preston Campbell and wife Lori are too busy exploring the cutting edge of homebuilding to bother with enjoying the last laugh. It’s that commitment to the quality behind the walls that continues to attract discerning clients in and around Park City to the visionaries behind Go West. “I’d much rather go skiing than do maintenance on my house,” says Preston, who moved with Lori and their three then small kids to Park City just after the Salt Lake City Olympics in 2002.

Construction Begins on New Park City Development
October 15, 2014

Park City – Construction has begun on the environmentally-friendly Echo Spur residential development in the town’s Old Town neighborhood. Echo Spur’s plans consist of seven, “mountain modern” homes situated on Rossie Hill along a private street. The developers are using the solar, superinsulation and water management strategies to reduce costs.

“There have been dramatic changes in regards to the economics of home construction, but with the residential real estate market still emerging from the recession, these changes are not well understood by the buying public,” said developer Sean Kelleher. “Our goal with Echo Spur is to promote the fact that it makes practical and financial sense to own a sustainable home that reduces the monthly costs of homeownership by 70 to 90 percent.”

Homes will range in size from 2,700 to 3,500 square feet, with versatile layout options that include three or four bedrooms, gourmet kitchens and outdoor entertaining areas with hot tubs and gas fireplaces. Echo Spur homes are offered by Berkhshire Hathaway HomeServices Utah Properties and range from $2.7 to $3.5 million. [click here to view the full article]
