Treasure developers plan to break out detailed model next week

55530-9cityp1The Treasure developers have provided numerous computer-generated images showing how the project would fit on a hillside overlooking Old Town.

On Wednesday, as the Treasure partnership continues its talks with the Park City Planning Commission, the developers intend to put another sort of visual on display.

A detailed physical model will be brought to the Marsac Building for the Planning Commission. It is believed that it will be the first time the model is on public display since 2010. The model was created during an earlier round of discussions about Treasure.

The model will likely be one of the highlights of what will be the final Planning Commission meeting of the year regarding Treasure. During the discussions in 2010, members of the Planning Commission and the public pored over the model. It was a detailed visual aid as those interested studied how the Treasure buildings would look in contrast to the surrounding neighborhood.

Next Treasure Hill meeting is today (Wednesday 11/9/16 @ 5:30PM)


Greetings THINC,

The next Planning Commission meeting to address the proposed Treasure Hill development is set for today:

Date:  Wednesday, November 9th

Time:  Meeting starts 5:30PM


This meeting will be a work session and public input will be taken.  We need a large turnout again and hope you can make it.  Our attendance and participation at these meetings is critical.  If approved the proposed Treasure Hill development would significantly change Park City forever and have a detrimental impact on the quality of life and the overall historical integrity of our town.


From the Staff Report – Staff recommends that the Planning Commission review Conditional Use Permit (CUP) criteria no. 8, 11, and 15 as presented in this work session staff report.  Staff recommends that the Planning Commission provide input and direction. Staff recommends that the Planning Commission conduct a public hearing and continue it to the December 14, 2016 Planning Commission meeting.


  1. building mass, bulk, and orientation, and the location of buildings on the site; including orientation to buildings on adjoining lots;
  2. physical design and compatibility with surrounding structures in mass, scale, style, design, and architectural detailing;
  3. within and adjoining the site impacts on environmentally sensitive lands, slope retention, and appropriateness of the proposed structure to the topography of the site.


The images below show the potential devastating impact of the proposed Treasure Hill development plans.  The Sweeneys and their partner are seeking approval to build more than 1.1M square feet on the landmark Treasure Hill in Historic Old Town.  With your help we can stop this from happening!

The current proposed development includes a sprawling complex with multiple condo/hotel towers over 10 stories high, large conference center, retail shops, restaurants, and a large underground parking garage.  It also includes massive excavation scars (over 120 feet high) that will be visible from all over town.  The project received an approval from the City way back in 1986 for 413,000 square feet.  Now 30 years later, the applicant is trying to get nearly 1.2M square feet of total development approved.
