Many people in Old Town, particularly along Lowell Avenue and Empire Avenue, are already dismayed with the idea to build the Treasure project on a hillside overlooking Old Town close to the route of the Town Lift.
Another developer in early February publicized plans for a significant project nearby, a concept that, it seems, will draw extra attention based on its proximity to the much larger Treasure. Though they are separate projects, Treasure and an eventual CRH Partners, LLC proposal will likely be seen by critics as related nonetheless as they outline the concerns about each. Members of the Park City Planning Commission, which are amid a review of Treasure and are expected to begin discussing the CRH Partners, LLC project in coming months, could also raise questions about the combined impacts, such as the traffic the two projects will be expected to generate.
It is an unusual situation in recent years involving two sizable development proposals in such close proximity. Drivers headed to the two projects, as an example, would be expected to heavily use Lowell Avenue.
“I would expect that we both get the same banter, the same traffic concerns . . . as expressed by the neighbors and other people in Park City,” acknowledged Pat Sweeney, who represents his family in the Treasure discussions.

The 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.
