The New Limelight Hotel Snowmass Set to Open November in Base Village, smack at the base of the ski area. The new ownership group— Aspen Skiing Co., KSL Capital Partners and East West Partners — has been working hard to get the hotel and two other buildings up and ready for next ski season and their diligence is visible for anyone who skis or snowboards down to the bottom of the Elk Camp Gondola or Village Express chairlift.
It’s also showing up in sales of the condominiums built on the top floors of the Limelight. So far four of the 11 have been put under contract even though construction crews are busy on site. Ownership at the Limelight has its privileges, including access to the Snowmass Mountain Club which is also located in the hotel. The Limelight Hotel Snowmass is proving to be an interesting and exciting mix of public and private — with the condos and the club being on the more private side, and the climbing wall, Living Room lobby and ice skating rink/events lawn just outside being more on public side.
East West Partners, who is leading development and sales for the ownership group, also reports healthy sales at the recently remodeled Viceroy Hotel — also part of Snowmass Base Village. Since re-launching the Viceroy Residences in mid-December, there has been a surge in sales with 27 residences either sold or under contract. Part of that may be the addition of a great coffee and pastry bar in the lobby and the remaking of the restaurant into Chef Richard Sandoval’s Toro Latin Kitchen and Lounge.
Construction is also well under way for Lumin, a three-condominium building that looks straight up the mountain toward the Big Burn. These are the most exclusive properties for sale in Snowmass Base Village.
