Steamboat Springs architect Michael Olsen confirms his office is actively working on six new homes tentatively planned for The Range single-family subdivision in Wildhorse Meadows, near the base of the ski area.

“Every house looks completely different from the others,” Olsen said.

Of the six, one has successfully completed the design review process required by developers Resort Ventures West. However, Olsen anticipates another home could be the first to begin construction — possibly in June.

Resort Ventures West Vice President Brent Pearson said he is aware of five other lot owners who are working with different architects but have not yet submitted their plans. He said he anticipates between six and 10 construction starts this summer.

Olsen said he’s not certain just how he wound up with a half-dozen projects in the new subdivision — they all come from different sources, he said.

Edgemont accepting reservations

The developers of Edgemont, a new slopeside residential project, have begun taking “exclusive priority reservations” for 42 one- to five-bedroom units being released this season.

Construction of the first phase of the luxury condominium buildings is set to begin this summer. Completion of the first release is anticipated during the 2009-10 ski season. Prices begin in the $800,000 range and increase to more than $2.5 million.

An exclusive priority reservation does not obligate buyers to purchase, Director of Sales Mark Murrell said. But, it gives them the opportunity to purchase during a one-day selection event early this summer.

“It is important to get involved now in order to be in the best position to select your residence in Edgemont,” Murrell said.
