State Bridge still under contract
Vail, CO Colorado
EAGLE COUNTY, Colorado – The State Bridge Lodge went under contract in early July.
Listing broker Mike Devins, of Re/Max Vail Valley, said the buyer solidified that contract on Friday. Doug Moog, president of Doog Music LLC, is the buyer, said Moog’s broker, Bonnie Lyn Carroll.
Moog’s contract on the property is scheduled to close by the end of September, Carroll said.
Doug Moog is related to Robert Moog, whose Moog Music analog and digital synthesizers are a leading name in electronic musical instruments. He is involved with The Kent Stage, a historic downtown music venue run by the Western Reserve Folk Arts Association in Kent, Ohio, Carroll said.
If Moog closes on the property, the proposed plan is to bring live music back to State Bridge, Carroll said.
Before that could happen, the property’s owner and operators would need to start zoning and permitting processes, she said.
“We have to start from square one, and the idea is to bring back music and bring life into it and resurrect what everyone loved about State Bridge,” Carroll said.
Any possible plans to re-establish State Bridge as a music or lodging site are rudimentary until the deal closes, she said.
“We have to go through the proper channels of going back and going through zoning and getting the proper mass gathering permits and so on,” Carroll said. “It’s a project and it’s a labor of love.”
