THE NEXT GENERATION OF DEER VALLEY LIVING
As the first New Deer Valley-Empire Pass residential development in nearly a decade, One Empire Pass makes its premiere as the next generation of ski-in/ ski-out residences. An intimate enclave of only 27 three & four bedroom residences ranging in size from 2,025 to 4,350 sq. ft., this distinctive community is enriched with a lengthy list of family oriented, recreational and social amenities and services.
“We named it ‘One Empire Pass’ because it’s in the ‘crown jewel’ location next to the Silver Strike chairlift,” says Harry Frampton, Chairman and Founder of developer East West Partners. “This site features unobstructed views toward the Daly Chutes & Lady Morgan Bowl as well as down valley to Park City and the Uinta Mountain Range. It is the culmination of 35 years of experience developing ski country resort property, which includes the Empire Pass communities Shooting Star, Larkspur, Arrowleaf & Flagstaff.”
“Innovation was the guiding light throughout the design process for One Empire Pass,’’ says Bill Fiveash, East West Partners’ Managing Partner, Utah. “Our ‘dream team’ of architects, designers, construction experts and resort managers avoided preconceived and predictable ideas in order to achieve something really unique.”
These efforts resulted in an extraordinary community of ski-in/ski-out condominium homes with such advanced conveniences as direct elevator-to-residence access. As Matt Magnotta, listing agent of Berkshire Hathaway Home Services in Park City, says, “One Empire Pass is an inspired hybrid mountain lodge. It has the intimacy and small scale of a residential tower infused with an unique assortment of fun and social-minded amenities and services.”
Magnotta explains, “The building’s remarkable design, which enables each home to flow through the entire width of the building, offers an exceptional living experience. All of the homes showcase premium views. Plus there are no hallways, and with the elevators opening directly to the residences, each home has the feeling of a penthouse with floor-to-ceiling window walls and at least two ‘see-through’ balconies.”
One Empire Pass has been created to offer prized indoor/outdoor living year-round. Inside each home, the magnificent panoramas are captured from both the mountain-facing living areas as well as the bedroom areas overlooking Park City.
What’s more, One Empire Pass will receive a LEED Silver Certification for its high level of energy efficiency, says East West Partners V.P. of Design and Construction, Erik de Bruijn. “Even though we have very large windows, which we wanted to capture the panoramic mountain views, we were able to specify highly efficient thermal window systems,” de Bruijn explains. “These are above and beyond—in both efficiency and cost—what’s normally found in Park City.”
The community amenities at One Empire Pass were conceived to create open, vibrant living spaces that foster social relationships among all owner families.
The exclusive Ski Lounge is the social hub for families and friends and a welcoming place to enjoy pre- and après outdoor adventures. This spacious party, play, and gathering room features a cozy fireplace plus a breakfast and beverage bar. The lounge also houses private ski lockers, and Jans Mountain Outfitters is there to provide ski valet service, offering professional guidance while keeping gear in top shape for the slopes.
Just below the Ski Lounge, the dramatic Sun Lounge is another bright spot for relaxing, with a soaring, two-story window wall. The large fitness center orients toward impressive mountain views. An all-ages Game Room is home to the latest multiple-sport simulator, a big-screen television, plus games both electronic and as classic as pinball and shuffleboard. And the unique GOTOUROOM is a creative play-space for kids—where it’s okay to run around like a banshee or sit quietly at the crafts table creating a painting worth framing.
Outside, a spectacular Spa Deck is bordered by the newest idea in lounging—a festive hammock garden. Infinity spa pools and fire pits are where residents warm up while soaking in panoramic views of the Deer Valley® mountains colorfully cloaked in their seasonal finery.
Showing particular attention to personal service, One Empire Pass has a live-in Resident Manager who caters to residents’ needs before, during, and after their visit.
In giving traditional a contemporary spin, the clean mountain design of One Empire Pass allows the natural beauty of Deer Valley to take center stage. Project architects IBI Group, led by Peter Pillman and Joe Geroux, AIA have brought spacious, open floor plans that foster an easy, fresh, and somewhat modern feel to every home.
Fashioning the interiors for One Empire Pass is none other than celebrated designer Barclay Butera, who has flagship showrooms in Newport Beach, Hollywood, and Park City. Renowned for approachable elegance and West Coast chic style, Butera has created a juxtaposition of natural mountain and modern features. While uncluttered lines enable the views to be the focal point, the addition of warm golden tones bring a comfortable, casual feel to every room. Keeping the palette light and neutral throughout minimizes distractions and allows the drama to come from the intricate interplay of textures and materials.
Ideal for entertaining family and friends, the spacious great room, kitchen, and dining areas flow freely together. Kitchens move away from the more traditional to focus on the simple beauty of natural wood and stone. All-purpose media rooms, dens, and bunkrooms provide ample space for a houseful of family and friends.
The master suite’s plush features include floor-to-ceiling windows, fireplaces, balconies, walk-in closets, and double sinks. Every bedroom in these family-size, penthouse-style homes has its own private bathroom.
The rare combination of innovative design, personal service, inspired amenities, and contemporary style of One Empire Pass is likely the motivation behind Deer Valley real estate watchers who say, “When you’ve seen one, you’ve seen it all.”
