Vail Pioneer Dick Hauserman was estimated to have taken more than 1,000 trips between Eagle County and Denver in his life, taking time to learn about the interesting features along the way. In an homage to Dick Hauserman’s 2004 book “On the Road to Vail,” and the commentary he provided, here’s a detailing of some of the projects currently underway in Eagle County.
Precourt Healing Center
Just to the east of Freedom Park, on I-70 at exit 163, Vail Health is building the Precourt Healing Center, a three-story, 50,000-square-foot inpatient behavioral health facility.
The facility will contain 28 beds — 14 of which will be for adolescents and 14 of which will be for adults — offering 24-hour behavioral health care serving adults and adolescents in crisis.
In April 2019, Vail Health’s board voted to contribute $60 million from its reserves over a 10-year period to start the construction of the facility, with the Vail Health Foundation committing to raising an additional $100 million.
The facility is targeting a spring 2025 completion.
Fox Hollow Apartments
Not far from the Precourt Healing Center in Edwards, Breckenridge Grand Vacations (the builders of Frontgate Avon) is also constructing a housing project known as Fox Hollow.
Breckenridge Grand Vacations is privately funding the Fox Hollow Apartments project, which will consist of 87 workforce units containing 217 bedrooms.
The entire project will be used for employee housing for Vail Health employees, with Vail Health purchasing 28 of the units and master leasing the remaining 59 units from Breckenridge Grand Vacations.
It’s located at 18 and 22 Murray Road and is expected to be complete in the coming months.
