Silverthorne Town Center plans approved
summit daily news
SILVERTHORNE ” Denver developer Peter Cudlip jumped through the final hoop with the Silverthorne Town Council this week and hopes to begin building Phase 2 of the Silverthorne Town Center in the next month.
Cudlip, of Alberta Development, will build a mix of residential and retail on the town’s 2.4-acre lot adjacent to the Town Pavilion, which is considered Phase 1.
He has not signed leases with any businesses yet, but says he is in discussions with a coffee shop and a family-oriented restaurant to rent space.
“I just want to make sure we have a signed lease before we say anything,” Cudlip said.
The council unanimously passed the final site plan for the project at Wednesday’s meeting, with relatively few hiccups.
Once concern came from Councilmember Peggy Long, who was worried that the Parkway building is too closely located to the Blue River Parkway.
Problems could emerge in the wintertime if snowplows spray snow on the windows while driving down the street, she said.
“I like the project. I think it looks great. I’m supportive of it. … I just want to make sure that all the i’s are dotted and t’s are crossed so when we see future development, we set a prime example,” Peggy Long said.
Cudlip and his architect, Gary Ellerman, fixed some concerns that surfaced when councilors passed the preliminary plans last month, such as:
– the patio at the south end of the River building has been set apart from the 25-foot required setback from the Blue River.
– the dumpster near the River building has been reduced in size and moved closer to the parking lot. A second small dumpster has been added to the north of the Parkway building.
The Town Center property is owned by Silverthorne, but Cudlip has signed a 25-year lease with the town.
Cudlip said he expects work to begin on the project in the next 30 days, with a completion date after Thanksgiving.
The building materials and architecture will mirror that of the adjacent Silverthorne Town Pavilion and the development will include interwoven pathways connecting the buildings, as well as a pedestrian pathway along the river.
The existing fruitstand will be recovered in similar building materials as to match the entire Town Center.
