RE: Proposed Vail Conference Center
The following images are derived from a
computer animation prepared for the Town of Vail development review
authorities. These authorities have yet to give their final approval of the
The Planning and Environmental Commission (PEC)
have several unresolved issues concerning the proposal. These concerns
could affect the final budget for the project as well as modify the
appearance of the proposal. It is unlikely that these issues will be
resolved prior to the public vote on the project.
The architectural design of the proposal
remains a matter of controversy. There have been no images, because of the
controversy, which show the full scope of the proposal in the literature
provided to date by project proponents or the local media.
The Town of Vail can exempt its own projects
from the European alpine architectural styles required of all private
redevelopment projects in Lionshead. Some believe the contemporary “big
box” appearance of the proposed Center is inappropriate.
There is a more complete pictorial inventory
of the project’s computer animation on the Association's website.
