CONWAY — A long-awaited event at Cranmore Mountain Resort took place Tuesday, as officials joined owners Brian and Tyler Fairbank and Cranmore President and General Manager Ben Wilcox in breaking ground on Phase One of the Kearsarge Brook Condominiums at Cranmore.
"I want to thank everyone for coming out today to celebrate a really major development in the history of Cranmore," Wilcox said at the ceremony, which was attended by Chuck Henderson, representative of Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.), and Amy Bassett, representing Gov. Maggie Hassan (D-N.H.), who read letters of congratulations from their bosses.
"In the short term," wrote Shaheen, "this project will create many good construction jobs and in the long term this will create a resort village which is integrated with Cranmore, North Conway Village and all that the area has to offer."
Wrote Hassan: "The construction of Kearsarge Brook Condominiums at Cranmore Mountain will help boost our travel and tourism industry, as well as the local economy, and have a ripple effect across the entire Granite State."
Also in attendance were Town Manager Earl Sires; Janice Crawford, executive director of the Mt. Washington Valley Chamber of Commerce; David Miller and Matt Howard of Glen Builders, the general contractors for the project; Josh McAllister of H.E.B. Engineers of North Conway; Realtors Dick Badger and Brenda Leavitt of Badger Realty and staff, official selling brokers for the project; Nancy Clark of Drive Brand Studio of North Conway; and several other real estate and resort officials.
