The Gant's $7 Million Dollar Renovation Nearly Complete
Eco-friendly landscape design garners prestigious award for Four Seasons Landscaping
Aspen sparkles brighter this new year as The Gant Condominiums enter the final phase of its $7 million dollar renovation efforts set for completion in July 2007. This three-year endeavor focused on enhancing the property's exterior grounds and communal interior areas. Once completed, The Gant will boast five acres of artfully manicured landscape, new outdoor lounging areas, a refurbished meeting facility, lobby and an impressive main entry way. This award-winning undertaking exhibits the best in comfortable, contemporary design with the latest best practices in environmentally sound landscaping.
Renovation efforts to date have transformed The Gant's exterior grounds into a peaceful enclave designed in harmony with nature. Exquisite design elements such as running streams, wrought-iron art panels, and calming water and light features embrace the unique Colorado landscape and provide a mental transport for guests. Indigenious rock and plant gardens, signature Aspen trees and new stonewalls adorn the walkways between The Gant's four guest buildings and pave the way to new and renovated outdoor guests amenities. The upper pool and hot tub were re-tiled with a rich onyx finish and a new outdoor dining terrace equipped with a stainless steel barbecue, soapstone countertop and a lava rock fire pit was added. The property's 5,000 square-foot conference center was refurbished with new decor, carpet and lounge and meeting furnishings.
Moving into the final phase, The Gant will continue with its landscape efforts but will also focus on exterior and interior renovation projects.
- Property handrails, individual balcony guardrails and all exterior lighting fixtures will be replaced
- The property entryway will feature a new retaining stonewall, water feature and plant display
- The entry circle leading into the lobby will feature snowmelt asphalt, new accent stonewalls, landscaping and a porte-cochere
- The lower pool and hot tub will be refinished and boast a new built-in barbecue grill with stonetops and communal seating
- A new fireplace and a fire pit area will be built poolside
- New lobby decor and furnishings
The Gant tapped the local talents of Design Workshop and Four Seasons Landscaping. This artistically compelling and eco-friendly landscape design earned the 2006 Environmental Improvement Grand Award from The Professional Landcare Network, an international trade association that recognizes aesthetic green landscape designs. All the outdoor art panels were also created by localsculptor Mike Lindsay.
