Steamboat West is one of the last undeveloped land parcels within the West Steamboat Master Plan Area. Located just west of the City of Steamboat Springs, CO, the 346 acre parcel can retain its current agricultural use or be planned to accommodate future mixed use and/or residential housing uses. The property is irreplaceable considering it is positioned within the City and County planned growth area, surrounded on three sides by residential developments, and adjacent to the Steamboat Springs School District’s new K-8, Sleeping Giant School, currently under construction.
Majority of the acreage is within City of Steamboat Springs designated Urban Grown Boundary and further identified in the West Steamboat Springs Area Plan (WSSAP) to absorb the City’s future growth projections. The WSSAP envisions 1100 to 2600 new residential dwellings and this is significant considering current inventory is approximately 8500 dwellings. The City of Steamboat Springs’ WSSAP encompasses approximately 2.5 square miles suitable for future development and Steamboat West represents the majority of acreage within a direct path of development to absorb continued demand for residential housing and mixed use developments. Steamboat West is one of the last large-scale parcels that could become part of the City of Steamboat Springs and has the acreage and topography to become a planned community or “village” all to itself.
