Canyon Corners - Mixed Use
The Canyon Corners – Mixed Use project was partially built during the downturn. Successful revitalization includes a thriving retail and workforce housing community anchored by a Whole Foods Market. The site connects to existing bike trails and a custom designed bus shelter provides a new stop for local mass transit. Pedestrian corridors connect trails, transit, shops and residences in paths separated from cars.
The Mixed-Use building is designed for a variety of retail tenants, from Christy’s Sports to SlapFish, with twenty one-bedroom apartments developed for much-needed workforce housing above. Tenant spaces are accessed by secure entry lobbies. Modern and durable finishes with beautiful lighting in lobby spaces and hallways form attractive entries to the units. Quality, yet moderately priced finishes are used throughout the spacious units. The units face WOW! views of the ski-jump area and mountains across the way.
Portions of the exterior façade are wrapped with a highly unique material – reclaimed wood finished in a Japanese method of wood preservation called shou sugi ban. The wood is charred then hand sanded and rubbed for a water-repelling finish. This wood, plus stone veneer, reflect the local mountain environment.
