As growth in the Wasatch Back continues to boom, developments in Summit and Wasatch counties are creating opportunities for homeowners who prefer new construction and the opportunity to customize their home, without the steep architect fee.
We’ve compiled a list of standout developments in both existing and new communities, with links to the properties and a few tidbits about the area. Please reach out to me to learn more about the nuances of each development and to schedule a site tour!
SILVER CREEK VILLAGE
The Silver Creek community is located north of where I-80 and Hwy 40 meet, and has long offered large, sagebrush-covered lots compatible with horse riding and elk-viewing. The lower area of Silver Creek continues to be built out, and provides convenient access to both Salt Lake and Heber City, with sweeping views of the Snyderville Basin.
Two new communities from Salt Lake City-based Garbett Homes currently under construction are Skyscape and Eclipse, both with distinct features that set them apart from other developments in the area. Skyscape offers Park City’s first Zero Energy-Ready townhomes, comprised of 26 two- and three-bedroom residences starting at $474,000 for 1,480 square feet, while Eclipse includes 29 three- to six-bedroom single-family homes starting at $612,900 for 2,157 square feet, making it easily one of the best values located within the Park City School District.
Canyons Village is located at the base of Park City Mountain’s “Canyons” side, which is named for the former resort that was combined with Park City Mountain Resort in 2015 to create the largest ski area in the U.S. and is operated by Vail Resorts. The benefits of Canyons Village include proximity to lift-served on-mountain activities and the challenging Canyons Golf public course, easy access to trails and a shorter drive to Salt Lake and the airport.
Buyers looking for a full-service, luxury property will enjoy the soon-to-be-completed Pendry Residences Park City, located adjacent to the Canyons Village and boasting the only rooftop pool and bar in Park City. Offering fully-furnished studios to four-bedroom residences (446 square feet to more than 2,500 square feet, with prices ranging from $675,000 to $2,995,000), the property includes four restaurants and lounges, an activities-based children’s program and a spa. Included among Forbes’ recent “The 30 Most Anticipated Luxury Hotel Openings for 2021” list, a planned high-speed lift will provide immediate access to the mountain, and Park City’s acclaimed ski and snowboard school can assure every level of skier or rider a fun and safe on-mountain experience.
Another new property ready to come online in Canyons Village is the affordable YOTELPAD Park City, offering fully-furnished micro-condos in the low $300,000s. The units range from 402-square-foot studios to a 1,013-square-foot three-bedroom, and boast features designed to maximize their compact spaces, such as SmartBunks that transform into a desk for day use.
Two other newly-constructed Canyons Village properties of note include Juniper Landing townhomes located between the 9th and 10th fairways of the Canyons Golf Course with three residences still available ranging from $1,250,000 to $1,950,000, and The Ridge at Canyons Village offering four- and five-bedroom ski-in townhomes with six units still available from $1,935,935 to $2,303,265.
NORTH OF THE JORDANELLE RESERVOIR
As you leave Park City along SR 248 towards the Kamas Valley, you’ll see new developments all along the roadway with price points for every buyer. These developments are mostly located in Wasatch County, as this small finger of Wasatch was cut off from the bulk of the county when the Jordanelle Reservoir was created in 1994, establishing one of the most popular state parks among water sports enthusiasts. With stunning views of the reservoir, especially in the early morning as fog floats along the water’s surface, these communities offer easy access to recreation and dining in Park City at a slightly reduced cost. These properties are not located within Park City or the Park City School District, so students will attend either Wasatch County or South Summit schools – both of which are excellent school districts.
Black Rock Mountain Resort, currently under construction next to the Black Rock Ridge community of condos and townhomes on SR 248 and Brown’s Canyon Road, offers 2- to 4-bedroom luxury condos starting at $455,900 with amenities that include underground parking, and outdoor heated pool, fitness center, full-service restaurant & bar and an Ice Event Center with one outdoor and two indoor ice rinks. The property website refers to it being within Park City, but that is not the case, as it is located in Wasatch County – and important note should prospective buyers have school-aged children.
Deer Waters Resort, located in Hideout, offers three- to four-bedroom properties in its Phase 2, starting at 2,388 square feet overlooking the Jordanelle, while Klaim at Hideout features 88 3- to 5-bedroom contemporary townhomes starting in the $600,000s and sliding glass walls to take advantage of the reservoir views. Also located in Hideout is Shoreline, boasting 360-degree water and mountain views from energy-efficient townhomes starting at $804,750.
Located along Highway 40 on the way to Heber City, and overlooking the west side of the Jordanelle Reservoir, properties at the Mayflower exit (named for the Mayflower Mine, located above this side of the reservoir) offer ease of access to the Jordanelle Resort and Jordanelle Express Gondola for Deer Valley Resort. This is also where the planned Mayflower Mountain Resort will be bringing an additional five chairlifts and up to 1,000 acres of skiing. Existing developments in this area include Stillwater, Star Harbour Estates, and Fox Bay, but a new entry into this burgeoning community is Mayflower Lakeside, offering 3-bedroom condos starting at $580,000 and 1,577 square feet, and 4- to 5-bedroom townhomes starting at $850,000 and 2,494 square feet right on the banks of the Jordanelle. The planned community encompasses 93 acres with more than 65% designated as open space, plus trails, a community pool and clubhouse.
