Dillon expands town development plan

This summer, Dillon built a larger playground and more picnic shelters in the park. But it’s not stopping there. It is studying the effects of improving the amphitheater and other town amenities.

It’s all a part of Dillon’s Waterfront Master Plan, which calls for a two-level parking structure, a wharf and floating dock, expansion of the Tiki Bar and new rental and retail buildings at the Marina. The plan also considers another building next to the parking structure that could be used for banquets, office space or restaurants.

In addition, Alpine Lake Lodge is set to replace Restaurant Al Lago on Lake Dillon Drive. It will be made up of 44 condos and will offer 8,500 square feet of commercial space, part of which will be a restaurant.

Meanwhile, Walgreens is scheduled to open off of Highway 6 (between Blockbuster and the City Market complex) this winter. The 9,000-sqaure-foot building offers five commercial spaces for restaurants or retail stores.

Keystone new development

keystone real estate Keystone new developmentBy now, you’ve probably heard that Keystone’s new gondola in River Run shortens your walk from the parking lot to the slopes. The base of the gondola is near Green Light and the ski school offices, so you no longer have to cross that last bridge to get to the gondola. In addition to saving walking time, the gondola will also be 30-40% more energy efficient than the resort’s other lifts.

And, Keystone is putting in more than a new gondola. The latest development is called One River Run, located in what was the Hunki Dori parking lot. Construction will start on the west end and move east, creating 180 units that look (and serve people) like a luxury hotel. The complex will offer 1, 2, 3 and 4 bedroom units. Pre-sales should start in December, with groundbreaking in spring, 2009.

The Mountain House, the original base of Keystone, will also undergo a transformation, which will include 588 new properties.

First time homebuyers really have incentive if they buy real estate between April 9, 2008 and July 1, 2009

first time homebuyers First time homebuyers really have incentive if they buy real estate between April 9, 2008 and July 1, 2009

If you’re a first-time homebuyer, OR if you (and your spouse) haven’t owned a home for the last three years, you qualify for up to a $7,500 tax credit. (The credit equals 10 percent of the home’s sales price, up to $7,500.) That means if you owe the government $3,000 in taxes this year, you’d pay nothing and get a $4,500 refund!

This tax credit, or Housing and Economic Recovery Act, applies to primary residences purchased between April 9, 2008 and July 1, 2009. Even if you already own a lot, you can get the tax credit if you start building your home (though you must occupy it by July 1, 2009). All you have to do is claim the credit on your 2008 or 2009 tax return.

But, the credit is meant to stimulate the economy, rather than give people free money; buyers must begin paying back the credit — given interest free — two years after they claim it, and they have Read more »
