Pitkin Creek Park Condominiums and Shops

-A A +A
1979, Briner and Scott. 4000 Bighorn Rd., East Vail

Simple textured plywood sheathes this angular compound that combines street-floor shops with two floors of affordable condominium housing. The housing units, under steeply pitched shed roofs, have generous balconies and fireplaces. This is a rare alternative for employees of Vail businesses to the usual long commute from mobile home parks or distant communities with affordable housing.
