As Snow King continues to evolve, more large-scale developments are being planned.

The latest proposal, called Town Hill Lofts, is designed as a new mixed-use building at the base of Snow King, on 680 S. Cache St. The Jackson Planning Commission will review the project and take public comment July 6.

The current design consists of 38 housing units and nearly 3,700 square feet of commercial space. Of the 43,000 square feet of residential space, 34 of the 38 units will be designated as market-rate condos allowed for short-term rentals. The final four units will be earmarked for employee housing.

Of the four employee housing units, two will have three bedrooms and two will have one bedroom. The building’s developer, Crystal Creek Capital, is asking for no zoning variances but will pay a fee in lieu for the final piece of employee housing.

Prices for market-rate units have yet to be set, but the building’s market-rate floor plans will consist of eight one-bedroom units, 12 units with two bedrooms and two bathrooms, 11 units with three bedrooms and two bathrooms, and three units with three bedrooms and three baths.

The Snow King Resort Management Association has already approved the building plans and certified that the design fits with the Snow King Master Plan. The developers at Crystal Creek Capital said they also worked closely with members of the Jackson Planning Commission throughout the design process.

“The special part is the collaboration between SKRMA, the town staff and us,” said Jim Walter, Crystal Creek’s president. “We’re really looking forward to the project and feel fortunate to do business in this community.”

Crystal Creek Capital is a real estate investment fund that owns a variety of properties around Jackson from single-family homes to apartment buildings and commercial space.

If given the green light by the town, Crystal hopes to break ground on the project next spring.

The new reporter may have made an error?
CCC owns 35 acres out at Max C Chapman's Bar B Bar Ranch, and they are selling it for 5 million right now.
I didn't see any other properties listed under Crystal Creek Capital on the Teton County Map Server.
Max C Chapman Jr's Bar B Bar subdivision sure is home to a lot of LLC's though...

PS The resort levy tax failed (JH N&G did not write an article about this for some reason, but that is big news). SKMR LLC will likely sell more of their land to fund the future parking garages.

Town Hill Lofts, for out of towners...
Can't believe the Town is working with CCC when SKMR LLC doesn't even have a legit base area master plan to handle the one million visitors they wish to attract. Exactly which representatives are assisting with this unwanted development?
Every developer is watching to see if the door will be open for more lodging along SK Avenue and Cache(the underdeveloped part of the lodging overlay...)

This is two parcels totalling 1.3 acres, right next to the tubing lift.

In 2009, Max C Chapman Jr and the other billionaire/super-rich shareholders sold this lot to their friend at CCC, because they didn't profit enough from building Love Ridge and Grand View on top of SK's beginner terrain.

This was the first hint that SKMR LLC would be selling their assets instead of following their 2000 master plan for base area properties. This will likely have to be discussed before "Crystal Creek Capital" moves forward with developing this giant condo row.

...SKMR LLC then sold the Hotel for a huge price and almost parted with the KM6 property too, and continue to list another parcel that could see 100 rooms per acre.

I love Snow King, the mountain......
