Intrawest will partner with Hard Rock International to bring a four-star Hard Rock condo-hotel to Copper Mountain.
Intrawest and Hard Rock International agreed on the deal last summer, said Intrawest public affairs manager Laura Goode, explaining that the hotel proposal is contingent on county approval of a new base area development plan that will be considered by local officials during the next few months.
A formal application could be submitted as early as next week.
A countywide open house on the base area proposal is scheduled for March 13.Copper wants to add several hundred residential units and some new commercial space to the base area.
The proposal has been studied closely by Copper Mountain stakeholders, and Intrawest officials hope their collaborative, up-front approach will pay off with a smooth run through the planning process. The Hard Rock hotel announcement anticipates construction beginning as soon as 2007.
