VAIL — The Harp Group, the developers of the proposed Marriott Residence Inn and an affordable housing project in West Vail will host an informational open house Monday from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Sonnenalp Hotel in Vail.

 The proposed project includes a 170-room Marriott Residence Inn and 113 deed-restricted apartments, as well as 328 below-grade parking spaces located on the former Roost Lodge property in West Vail. It was first submitted to the town of Vail on Aug. 15 and is currently under review by the town's Planning and Environmental Commission.

 "We want to give community members and our neighbors in West Vail an opportunity to meet the development and design teams and ask questions about the project outside of the more formal town meetings," said Peter Dumon, founder and president of The Harp Group, a real estate and hospitality investment corporation headquartered in suburban Chicago. "It's an important project for Vail and all of Eagle County and we want to make sure people fully understand it. We've personally invited our immediate neighbors to the open house via email, but anyone with an interest in the project is welcome to stop by."

The town of Vail has adopted a housing plan to purchase 1,000 deed restrictions on homes and apartments in the next decade.

"With our proposed 113 apartments, Vail will be more than 10 percent on its way to its goal of 1,000 deed-restricted units within town limits by 2027," Dumon said.
