Location is a major focus of this 27-unit condominium complex, Bear Crossing, that’s within easy walking distance of one of Crested Butte Mountain’s main ski area chair lifts. The mountainside site boasted extraordinary opportunities for its designers. The natural slope of the site was the inspiration for a building offering gorgeous views of both the mountains and the valley from every living room. Bear Crossing’s two towers of four stories each are laid out in a footprint that thoughtfully takes into account a nearby willow wetland area, and minimizes impressions of any neighboring buildings. The towers form a V-shape, opening all sides of the buildings to abundant sunshine and affording residents magnificent down-valley views. An underground parking garage – a feature that’s not always a “given” on sloped sites – is located at different elevations to follow the contour of the topography.
