An artist's rendering of what the Ridge Resort will look like when complete. Construction of phase one is expected to wrap up in the summer or fall next year.

New resort equals new jobs

Groundbreaking kicks off construction

A new resort is in the works on Mt. Woodside, and it could inject more than a dozen jobs into the community.

The Ridge Resort will feature 10 townhouses and 122 studio and one-bedroom suites, says Steve Kim, marketing director for Harrison Highlands.

It will also include a 13,000 sq. ft. clubhouse, featuring a restaurant, reception and conference areas, ‘kidszone,’ fitness room, spa, pools and mineral water hot tubs. Kim expects the resort to require at least five full-time and 10 pary-time jobs.

Construction begins this month, and a groundbreaking ceremony is planned for this Saturday at noon. The first phase is expected to be completed in the summer or fall of 2012.

“This is the actual kick off for the resort,” Kim says, which is a part of the 90-acre Harrison Highlands development at 2010 Lougheed Highway.

The units will cost anywhere from $109,000 to about $299,900, depending on size, Kim says, and are being sold as “whole ownership” units.
