New Luxury Hotel Planned For Ketchum
Ketchum, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KSVT-TV ) - Trail Creek Fund, LLC Monday, announced the plans to develop a new luxury hospitality property. The company has signed Auberge Resorts Collection, award-Winning owner and operator of boutique luxury hotels, resorts, residences and private clubs, to operate the boutique luxury hotel and penthouse residential development. The company plans to develop the southeast corner of River and Main streets in Ketchum. When completed in late 2017, the hotel is expected to be a significant economic contributor to downtown Ketchum’s future economic prospects and health and the focal five-star lodging component within the greater Sun Valley area, America’s original mountain resort.
The 155,000-square-foot mixed-use project will comprise between 80 and 90 hotel rooms and penthouse residences, a full-service restaurant and bar, spa and fitness facilities and technology-driven meeting and conference space, in addition to other amenities.
Fourteen for-purchase luxury residences on the hotel’s upper floors, including six fourth-floor penthouses, will offer direct unobstructed views to the top of Bald and Dollar Mountains. Ranging from 1,250 square feet to 2,400 square feet in a single-level plan, the residences will be accessible by private elevator with exclusive two-car underground parking and storage and will offer full access to the hotel’s services and amenities. The hotel, fully entitled by the City of Ketchum, has been designed by the renowned San Francisco-based hospitality architectural firm Hornberger + Worstell, AIA. The project is scheduled to break ground in May 2015. Construction employment is anticipated to generate 100 full-time worker positions in the two-year building cycle and upwards of 80 hotel positions once opened.
