Set at the base of Whistler and Blackcomb mountains, Vancouver’s leading developer Cressey Development Group acquired a one-of-a-kind site on the edge of Whistler village that had never been offered before. Cressey’s development objective was to create a world class mixed use development that would be unrivalled in the four season mountain resort business.
The challenge was to work with the complexities of a difficult slopeside site, a requirement to include the Whistler Village Gondola and employee housing while combining the power of the Westin brand.
NORTH AMERICA’S PREMIER SKI-IN SKI-OUT ADDRESS
Working with the S&P design team, Cressey crafted an innovative real estate offering never available before, which included Whistler’s first HSO (hotel-strata ownership), an exclusive mountain club with ski concierge and a full-service five star destination. The Westin Resort Whistler would later be recognized by Condé Nast as North America’s #1 resort hotel.
To match the status and potential of such a storied property, the S&P team created a multi-launch strategy that targeted Vancouverites, American ski loyalists and Asian investors. The high touch, white-glove approach to selling attracted celebrities, business leaders and ski enthusiasts from around the globe.
The power of the Westin brand set a new standard for real estate sales in North America.
