Pendry To Open Luxury Resort At Base Of Canyons Village In Park City
A spectacular luxury ski-in, lift-out resort will be developed at Park City, one of the largest ski areas in the United States. Pendry Park City will be conveniently located in the heart of Canyons Village at the entrance to Park City Mountain. Construction is set to begin early summer 2019 and be completed for winter 2021.
Pendry Park City is the beginning of a new era of hospitality in Park City. It will be at the heart of Canyons Village as it is part of a larger upper village master plan. The resort is bound to become the social hub of Canyons Village. It will be conveniently located only 35 minutes from Salt Lake City International Airport.
The resort is being developed by Pendry Hotels and Columbus Pacific Development. “We spent a lot of time thinking about the caliber and quality we wanted for this development and ultimately, Pendry represents the service, architecture and experience that will bring a distinctive offering to both guests and residents,” says Brian Shirken, president, Columbus Pacific.
Pendry Park City will offer 150 guest rooms and suites as well as luxury residences. It will offer a contemporary design with a palette of warm woods, stone and metals, designed by SB Architects and IBI Group architects.
“This location in Canyons Village will provide guests a contemporary retreat created with respect for alpine warmth and tradition—a place that we hope will redefine the future of mountain living and hospitality,” says Michael Fuerstman, co-founder and creative director of Orange County, Ca.-based Pendry Hotels.
Pendry Park City will offer a wide array of amenities to its guests that will be beyond compare. Pendry will have the only rooftop pool and bar in the area, in addition to four unique lounge, restaurant and bar experiences with a vibrant après-ski venue. A Japanese-American restaurant will offer mountain fare, steaks and chops along with Japanese standards of sushi and ramen. Casual American fare will be offered in the resort’s recreation facility.
The resort’s Spa Pendry will feature eight treatment rooms and a full menu of treatments. The property will also have a state-of-the-art fitness center, arcade games in the recreation facility and Pinwheel Kids Club. There will also be more than 7,000 square feet of indoor meeting space, including a 4,000-square-foot ballroom.
