Middle Creek project at ‘topping off’ stage
Construction tradition will celebrate topping off when a project reaches its maximum height and much of the work is complete. Construction of the project is approximately 65 percent finished and is scheduled for completion on Nov. 1.”We are thrilled with the progress of construction throughout the summer,” said Mike Coughlin of Coughlin & Company, the project’s developer. “In the next two months, we will be framing smaller sections of the building, primarily to the south and east of the parking structure and, once constructed, these will completely screen the parking structure and enhance the appearance of the project as a cluster of smaller buildings.” Shaw Construction is the general contractor on the project, and has a crew of about 120 working at the site near the main Vail Interstate 70 interchange.Middle Creek is being built through a partnership between the Vail Local Housing Authority, acting as the owner representative for the Town of Vail, and Coughlin & Company, a Denver-based developer. When completed, the development will have 142 rental apartments, including studio, 1-, 2- and 3-bedroom units. The project also includes 210 covered parking spaces, on-site laundry, tenant storage and an on-site bus stop. In addition, a new $1 million early childhood learning center with the capacity to care for 65 children is being constructed concurrently on the site.Dozens of Vail-based workers have already expressed an interest in living at Middle Creek.

It’s fitting that Eagle County is proceeding through its reopening phases of COVID-19 in an analogy to ski run difficulties — green to blue to black. Monday marks the transition from the green beginner phase to the blue intermediate phase.
