Developer to throw another free concert

Special to the DailyLez Zeppelin will perform a free concert Saturday that's being put on by the developer of Solaris, which was approved by voters earlier this month.

VAIL ” Crossroads developer Peter Knobel will be throwing one more party for Vail voters.

Lez Zeppelin, an all-female Led Zeppelin cover band, will play a free concert at 8150 on Saturday.

“We want to thank the community that voted, and we want to thank the rest of the community that couldn’t vote and has been a supporter of this throughout the process,” said Craig Cohn, director of sales, leasing and marketing for Solaris.

Voters approved the Solaris proposal by an overwhelming margin on July 11. The proposal includes 69 condos, a 10-lane bowling alley, a three-screen movie theater, a public plaza, stores and restaurants.

Doors open at 9 p.m.

Before the election, Knobel threw a voter appreciation party featuring Hell’s Belles, an all-female AC/DC cover band.

Construction for the Solaris proposal is supposed to start at the end of the ski season in 2007.

Dominic Mauriello, planner for Solaris, said the project could go before the town’s design board on Sept. 6. That shouldn’t be a significant obstacle for the plan, Mauriello said.

“The project’s approved, but they can cause delays if we want to argue over some kind of design component,” Mauriello said.

The developer is in the process of preparing construction designs, and must apply for building permits before construction begins.
