New development opens for sales

SKYLER BELL, Of the Record staff

QUA, Inc., today began pre-selling town homes located in its new seven-acre development located behind the Quarry Village shopping center. Groundwork has already begun on the development, called The Courtyard at Quarry Village, and structure work is planned to begin in August.

Phase one, which will include two- and three-bedroom floor plans starting at $495,000, will be finished March 2007, with three more phases to come after and be finished by the following December.

The phase-one homes will range in size from 1,600 to 2,200 square feet, but larger three-bedroom units will be added in the fourth and final phase.

"We’re have a strong construction background, live in Park City and care about the community," said Scott Webber about he and partner Jay Shotwell, the contractors on the project. "We care about the long-term effects of the project. We drive past it every day and really care what it looks like and how it functions as a community."

The $30,000 development of 52 town homes has been planned for over five years as part of the Pinebrook community, but only moved to the design and implementation stages in the last 24 months.

"Homeowners will have access to all the Pinebrook recreational facilities and trails parks, playgrounds, basketball courts, picnic areas and tennis courts. But having the access to such great trails is amazing," Webber said.

Residents will also have immediate access to the Quarry Village shopping center, which includes a grocery store, day spa, pet spa, restaurants and other shops and boutiques.

"The cool thing about this is this whole concept of being able to walk to all your commercial services and your neighborhood services," he said. "We’ve designed this to integrate right into the Quarry Village shopping complex."

Webber also stressed the neighborhood’s community focus.

"We’ve worked really, really hard to bring a quality, creative kind of product into the marketplace at this price point," he said. "We’re targeting singles, couples, small families. We are conducted toward full-time residents and second-home owners, not toward selling investment properties where there will be new renters every night. This is going to be a place to call home."

In an attempt to help foster that tight-community feel, Webber, Shotwell and designer Jack Johnson used a system of heated courtyards to give access to garages and parking, as well as provide central areas in the neighborhood. With a location near both shopping and the freeway, Webber said he hopes they attract the types of people who will take advantage.

"There is a huge convenience to the mountains, to Salt Lake City and to the freeway," he said. "And with the connection to the shopping area there will just be a nice little community, and it’s certainly the most affordable new home project currently in Park City, no doubt about that."

Shotwell said the homes are designed to give easy access to the outdoor activities that bring most of Park City’s residents, but also to the town as well.

"It’s cool that it’s such close proximity with a little town center with a grocery store and the restaurants," he said. "It’s similar to what’s going on to Kimball Junction but without all the traffic. You never even have to leave your car."
