Summit County business briefs: Single-family homes approved for the Shores

The Shores, an 11-acre development running alongside the Blue River in Breckenridge, recently added single-family homes to plans for the next phase of development. With phase one already having sold five of six duplex homes, and phase two currently under construction, Meriwether Companies managing partner Noah Hahn noted the planned residences will add a diversity of homes to the area.

“We felt like we wanted (the homes) based on feedback from the market, customers, and people who had come through and not purchased,” Hahn said. “There seemed to be demand for a different kind of product.”

The neighborhood currently hosts three- and four-bedroom townhomes at about 2,500 square feet each. The planned homes would range in size, from 2,100 to 2,700 square feet.

“We have a whole range of product along the river. A third of all of our new residences will be right on the river,” Hahn said. “You could stand on the patio and go fishing.”

Hahn said the work started about two-and-a-half years ago, when Meriwether purchased the deal from a “distressed developer.”

Originally entitled for townhomes, Breckenridge approved the use of single-family homes on the property this winter. Hahn said they had already seen one pre-sale for phase two, which they hope to complete by the end of the summer.

“The interesting thing about this location, it’s appealing to a wide-range of potential buyers,” Hahn said. “That’s kind of evidenced by all the different people who have bought so far,” he added, noting that buyers included individuals from across the United States, as well as a local restaurant owner.
