A community oasis, Skyhouse, will feature a pool and outdoor courtyard for gatherings, spa treatment rooms, showcase kitchen with private entertaining space, and a state-of-the-art fitness center and movement studio.

“Early on, I made the decision to hold this pristine land in reserve until after the promise of Promontory had been built and its luxurious grandeur was fully realized and established,” says developer Francis Najafi of Arizona-based Pivotal Group. “Offering the most sensational, panoramic views in Promontory, Pinnacle has been thoughtfully planned for those who expect uncommon luxury. With Bloomberg ranking Park City number 1 in its 2019 Index of Affluent Vacation Home Havens, we feel this new neighborhood is appropriately timed to appeal to these discerning families seeking spacious luxury, one-of-a-kind services, and privacy.”

An initial release consisting of 16 majestic, expansive custom estate homesites, boasting unparalleled views of the Wasatch range and the Pete Dye Golf course is anticipated in late Summer 2019. Reservations are now being accepted. In addition to these exquisite homesites, Promontory will introduce the Pinnacle Portfolio of Homes, built by Promontory HOMES. Buyers may select from stunning home designs commissioned especially for Pinnacle at Promontory by renowned architects/designers, including Clive Bridgwater (Bridgwater Consulting Group), John Sather (Swaback), and Erik Peterson (PHX Architecture), as well as exquisite interior finishes by Vallone Design and Alder & Tweed to customize their dream home. An additional 12 homesites to accommodate these luxurious masterpieces will be offered in the initial release.

PARK CITY’S MOST LUXURIOUS SECOND HOME COMMUNITY INTRODUCES EXCLUSIVE PRIVATE SKI LODGE AMENITY FOR MEMBERS

Promontory's new PC Lodge at Park City Mountain

The most exclusive vacation home community in Park City continues to impress by welcoming a new amenity this ski season. Promontory is pleased to debut the extraordinary PC Lodge at the base of Park City Mountain’s award-winning resort. With the PC standing for both Promontory Club and Park City, the luxurious 6,000 square-foot lodge is for members only. Members of this nationally recognized multi-generational, private community will enjoy ski-in, ski-out access to the First Time lift where beginners can learn to ski and snowboard and from where more accomplished enthusiasts can access the rest of the resort’s varied terrain.

Members and their guests are invited to relax by the fireplace and on sunlit sofas, watch television, and fuel up with complimentary light fare and beverages. More than 200 lockers are available for daily, weekly, and seasonal use, so members can conveniently store their gear.

Promontory Pets Celebrate Dog Park Improvements

PARK CITY’S MOST PAMPERED PETS CELEBRATE A NEW AND IMPROVED PLAYGROUND AT PROMONTORY

A Ribbon-Cutting Event Was Held for Dogs and Their Owners

Promontory Park City

Luxury living just became more enticing for Promontory’s four-legged members with a new and improved dog park where a ribbon-cutting celebration was held on Friday, November 16. Not only has the dog park doubled in size, but there are separate areas for large and small dogs for those who prefer to play with their own. For others who opt for an integrated playtime, there is a gate between the two areas, so dogs of all sizes can mingle. A designated off-leash trail leads to the park where grass, landscaping, and shaded seating are additional, new features to the dog park, which is open year-round. A full-fledged pet playground with various agility equipment is also being planned.

“As a community created for multi-generational families, Promontory includes pets in that mission,” adds Francis Najafi, CEO of Pivotal Group, the developer of Promontory. “We enjoy debuting new amenities to keep Park City’s most luxurious and innovative private community on the cutting edge.”

Several Promontory members and their furry friends joined the ribbon-cutting, and a selection of gourmet treats was offered for the private community’s discerning dogs who came out in full force with tails wagging.

“We recognize that pets are an integral part of the lifestyle our members enjoy at Promontory, so we are excited to elevate the amenities for these ‘fetching’ members as well,” says Robin Milne, Promontory’s General Manager, who attended the event with her own dog. “Like all of our amenities, the dog park takes advantage of stunning views for the entire family to enjoy.”

Alpine Spur Whiskey Wins Drammie

ALPINE SPUR WHISKEY WINS DRAMMIE AWARD FOR MOST INNOVATIVE NEW WHISKEY

Spur WhiskeyWhiskey enthusiasts have honored Alpine Distilling’s Spur Whiskey with a 2018 Drammie Award for Most Innovative New Whiskey Release in 2017. The annual International Drammie Awards sends out a call for nominations to ForWhiskyLovers.com email subscribers, members of whiskey clubs, and the general whiskey-consuming public. After nominations are closed, the top five nominations for each category are posted on ForWhiskeyLovers.com, and voting then commences to select the category winners. The Drammie Awards have become among the most important and prestigious means of recognition for those in the whiskey industry.

“This award is especially gratifying because we are being recognized by actual whiskey drinkers and enthusiasts.

The French Oak-aged single malt has a banana, mocha note finish with a vanilla spice, while the Bourbon contributes corn sweetness and American Oak brown flavors with subtle rye spice. This blend creates a spirit that excels as a sipping whiskey or in classic American cocktails.

UDOT DENIES VOTE TO ELIGIBLE VOTERS

UTAH DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION DENIES ELIGIBLE VOTERS THE RIGHT TO VOTE ON PROPOSED I-80 NOISE WALL IN SUMMIT COUNTY

Local Activist Group Continues Its Appeals to UDOT and Governor Herbert

sound wall

The sound wall along I-80 in Summit County between Parley’s Summit and Jeremy Ranch

As the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) moves forward on plans for its proposed, 3,200-foot long sound wall on I-80 from Parley’s Summit to Jeremy Ranch, homeowners excluded from the balloting process are now petitioning Governor Herbert. Residents of Jeremy Pointe were denied the right to vote despite being in closer proximity to the highway than the homeowners behind the Jeremy Ranch Golf & Country Club who were invited to cast votes. According to UDOT, the existing noise level for some of these homes is as high as 70 dBA, well above the UDOT noise abatement criteria (NAC) of 66 dBA.

“It is disappointing enough that UDOT has ignored the concerns of the majority of the residents in the area, but it is a violation of state law to deny eligible voters their right to vote,” explains Tom Farkas, one of the founding members of Citizens Against the Wall. “Not only has UDOT committed this egregious violation, but they did so in an arbitrary and capricious manner.”

This right to vote is in complete accordance with UDOT’s policy requirements, which provides:

UDOT Noise Policy C.2.c.1, Balloting b) “Receptors that border or that are directly adjacent, or both, to the end of a proposed noise wall that are not, by definition, benefited by the wall, will be allowed to cast a ballot.”

Dan Bass, President of the Jeremy Pointe Homeowners Association and a founding member of CATW, says, “UDOT should abide by its own rules given the other residents who voted were required to do so. We have suggested alternative, more effective methods of noise mitigation to UDOT, but they are proceeding with the project, taking down wildlife fencing, and have given no indication that any other noise measures will be used.”

The proposed noise barrier would be 17 to 20 feet in height and approximately 3,200 feet long, which would impact the views of many while detracting from the scenic beauty and open space visitors and locals have long appreciated when entering Summit County.

UDOT balloted only two-dozen Jeremy Ranch homeowners, while the greater community, including these 24 residents, would be adversely impacted by a permanent visual stain on the area’s natural beauty.

Members of CATW are available for media comment. Please contact Hilary Reiter at Redhead Marketing & PR to schedule interviews, Hilary@redheadmarketingpr.com or 435.901.2071.
