Cooper Johnson Smith Architects & Town Planners
Marriott Summit Watch is a 287,000-square-foot resort in Park City, a booming ski town in the Wasatch Mountains near Salt Lake City. Organized around a new pedestrian street and public square, the project includes 135 ski resort units, 50,000 square feet of mixed-use commercial space, and a 320-space underground parking garage. Located along Main Street in the heart of the 19-Century mining town's historic district, the project synthesizes the two distinct architectures of Park City: Buildings along Main Street are expressive of the quirky Victorian storefront structures nearby, while the buildings along Deer Valley Drive recall the industrial, barn-like structures of the town's historic mills and mines. In addition to the stringent requirements of the historic district review commission, project challenges included relocation of a significant creek, the addition of two bridges, a main road relocation and extension, relocation of major utility systems, seismic design, and snow and ice management systems.
