North Conway, NH – State and local leaders gathered at Cranmore Mountain Resort today for an official ribbon cutting ceremony that marked the completion of Phase One of Cranmore’s $50 Million base area redevelopment project called Kearsarge Brook Condominiums at Cranmore. When completed, the six phase Master Plan will bring six new buildings, 106 year round residences and 45,000 square feet of new day lodge space to the resort.
Today’s ceremony recognized Phase One of Kearsarge Brook Condominiums which sits at the base of Cranmore’s South Slope, providing 18 two and three bedroom condominiums with easy access to the slopes and views of Cranmore and the surrounding White Mountains.
Cranmore President and General Manager Ben Wilcox kicked off the event by welcoming the crowd and acknowledging the completion of Phase One of Kearsarge Brook on the eve of the Resort’s 80th Anniversary. “We’ve been talking about Cranmore’s future, Kearsarge Brook, for the past few years, and today we can say this is Cranmore’s present.” Wilcox continued by outlining the larger picture plan of the project which is to make Kearsarge Brook a trophy resort in New England. “Kearsarge Brook will heighten everything done at the mountain, and will set the table for the next 80 years to come.”
Special Assistant to Senator Jeanne Shaheen, Chuck Henderson, shared the Senator’s comments at today’s Ribbon Cutting. “Today’s ceremony marks a major step forward as you write the next chapter in Cranmore’s rich history. I would like to congratulate the folks at Cranmore, the Fairbank Group and all who came together to make this vision a reality.”
Joe Kenney, Executive Councilor, congratulated the resort and Fairbank Group on the completion of the first phase. “This particular project and future development is going to be a great addition to the ski industry and the state of New Hampshire,” he stated.
Dave Miller, President of Glen Builders – the project’s general contractor, stressed the local focus of the project, working with over 70 vendors and suppliers.
Cranmore owner, Brian Fairbank, who also operates Jiminy Peak Mountain Resort in Massachusetts and Bromley Mountain in Vermont, implemented a similar development at Jiminy Peak in the Berkshires of Massachusetts. Fairbank had high praise for the team who completed the project. “With Kearsarge Brook, we’re going to do everything we can to preserve the character, but wanted to make sure what we did in this base area was unlike anything else in New England. Taking this base area and making it spectacularly beautiful, becomes an essential ingredient for us to say how we’re going to differentiate ourselves for the future. Kearsarge Brook is a symbol of that uniqueness.”
Phase One residences range from 1,220 to 1,695 square feet for the top floor Penthouse. Phase One owners will enjoy ski-in/ski-out access to the slopes as well as a variety of resort amenities, gated parking and private owners ski lockers.
