W Hotel in Aspen Tops Out
GLENWOOD SPRINGS – Slated to open in summer 2019, Haselden Construction recently celebrated the topping out of the W Hotel in Aspen. The “modern chalet” will include 88 guest rooms, 11 fractional residences, a rooftop pool and spa, and speakeasy-style nightclub.
The resort will be built on the site of the former Sky Hotel and will offer guests and residents slope-side access to Aspen Mountain along with a state-of-the-art ski shop, outdoor patio and firepits for après, and a spacious 12,000-square-foot rooftop pool and bar with picturesque views of the ski resort. Rowland + Broughton designed the hotel and residences to be a mix of “urban style with mountain spirit.”
“The old Sky Hotel was an important part of the Aspen community,” said John Sarpa, president of Sarpa Development and co-developer of the W Aspen. “Haselden Construction is building something great that will be a focal point for the city, visitors and locals for generations to come.”
Haselden Construction is known throughout the Rocky Mountain region for its resort and hospitality work, including the Hotel Jerome in Aspen and One Steamboat Place in Steamboat Springs. Haselden used innovative techniques to manage the project site and ensure minimal disruption to the surrounding community, including a coordinated flow schedule for equipment and crews and its own self-perform concrete division to maintain quality and safety on the jobsite.
“Our team has done an amazing job managing the complex innerworkings of this project,” said Byron Haselden, CEO and president of Haselden Construction. “It’s not every day we have the opportunity to work with an owner and developer that has the knowledge and understanding of what it takes to construct a hotel of this caliber in a rigorous mountain climate. We know it will be a great addition to the Aspen community.”
