Howelsen Place to start

It looks like the redevelopment of the Harbor Hotel into Howelsen Place will start in August 2006. This project is one of 5 key projects that are expected to revitalize downtown Steamboat Springs over the next few years with high quality public spaces, shopping, restaurants and residences. Right now there are only 2 choices for condos downtown and that will change soon. We have seen a revitilization of many downtowns across the country particually in resort towns so it is exciting ot see it coming ot Steamboat. Main Street Steamboat is also hiring an events planner to bring more food & wine, arts, music and other cultural events to downtown Steamboat Springs.

Howelsen Place will sit at the corner of 7th and Lincoln downtown and go all the way down to Yampa street providing a nice linkage from downtown to the river. It is expected that Yampa street will become a thriving pedestrian corridor. Several new businesses are planned along Yampa including an authentic English Pub.

Selected quotes from the press release: Green Courte Partners, LLC, announced today the development start of Howelsen Place, an 84,700 square foot mixed use project in the mainstreet district of Steamboat Springs, CO. The City of Steamboat Springs City Council recently approved the development permit for the $28 million project, which will consist of 24,000 square feet of retail space, 42 for-sale residential units, and a below-grade parking structure. Construction is expected to commence in August, and project completion is expected in late 2007.

"Steamboat Springs is a fast-growing year-round resort community that has a vibrant downtown retail district with increasing '24/7' activity. Howelsen Place is at a 'Main and Main' downtown location and is designed to be a retail/residential project which is sensitive to the historic feel of Old Town and which will enhance the retail vitality of downtown Steamboat. It is gratifying after working closely with the planning staff and elected officials of Steamboat Springs to have designed a superior project that is consistent with Steamboat Spring's Old Town Plan and to have received strong Planning Commission and City Council support. We expect Howelsen Place to be an exciting location for retailers, retail customers, and residents."
