Wolcott is one of the last large parcels on the valley floor yet to be developed here in the Vail Valley.?? And local developer Community Concepts Colorado has now released plans to the public and to the county on what they hope to do with this great opportunity.

Having previously seen this plan, it really is exciting to see the focus of the project on the natural surroundings, especially the Eagle River.? Re-aligning Highway 6 to run closer to I-70 is critical, as this opens up acres of river frontage and allows for easy pedestrian and bike access throughout the community.? 65% of the 1100 acres are slated to remain open space.? Solar powered golf carts and people movers are envisioned to make less of an environmental impact.? Community spaces and amenities are highlighted in some of the best locations within the parcel, not as an after thought.

In keeping with the county’s Wolcott master plan, the developer intends to have a balance of residential units, with entry level and higher end properties.? There will also be a good blend of retail and professional spaces, as well as a dedicated “restaurant row” that overlooks the community park and the Eagle River.

Members of the neighboring? Bellyache and Red Sky Ranch?communities are excited to have some commercial development closer to home.? Especially one that favors neighborhood over sprawl and big boxes.? This development is in its very early stages and the developer is in no rush.? They want to get it right; and thus far it appears they are doing just that!!

There are many other great buys in the Vail Valley real estate market. In East Vail?I know of a 2 bedroom condo listed for $197,000 and a 3-bedroom town home listed for $499,000. The last two sales in this complex were in the mid $600,0000 range.? There is a one-bedroom where you ski to within a couple hundred meters that is listed in the $600,000 range. This same property?was going for nearly a million $ just a couple years ago.
