Luxury Real Estate Community in the Wasatch Mountains
Located in the Wasatch Mountains at the base of the Park City Mountain Resort, Silver Star is a 10-acre luxury real estate community including 90 condominium units, single-family housing units, and commercial space. The development also includes on-site amenities such as restaurants, outdoor outfitters, art galleries, workshops, and a chairlift accessing Park City Mountain Resort skiing.
Psomas provided condominium platting, ALTA surveying, grading and drainage design, utility design, surveying, as well as planning, mapping, and plotting for the resort development. Project challenges included designing around 60-inch waterlines that supply 40 percent of Park City’s water and could not be relocated or built over. Psomas maintained consistent water supply to the community throughout project construction. Due to the complex grading of this steep hillside project area, a retaining wall 40 feet high and 70 feet long was also constructed to maximize development space and adhere to the client’s limited off-haul allowance.
