The Hope Lake Lodge, Resort Spa and Indoor Water Park is a part of the
legacy of Greek Peak Mountain Resort. Greek Peak Mountain Resort, the
largest Central New York ski resort was founded in 1958 and has remained
at the leading edge of the ski industry. The resort addition to the
existing Ski Center is a four star rated destination resort that offers
its guests an opportunity to experience all the comforts and amenities
of a classic mountain resort in the heart of the Finger Lakes Mountain
Region. The Main Lodge is home to 106 condos sold in quarter shares, a
two story timber framed Ski Lodge and Welcome Center, a high class
restaurant, Waterfalls Spa, a 5,500-square-foot luxurious Feng Shui
designed international spa, and an array of spectacular, modern and
historic amenities. The Aquatic Center is home to a year-round,
indoor/outdoor Water Park with pools, spas and water slides along with
changing facilities and food/beverage services. The property includes
access to the Greek Peak Ski Resort as well as the future expansion to
include a world-class golf course and village center with retail shops.
The existing Greek Peak Ski Center was the catalyst that inspired the
$83 million resort complex. Turning the existing ski resort into a
destination resort that could be used year round was the challenge that
drove the inclusion of the indoor water park with year round
temperatures of 80 plus degrees. The design of the complex is based
heavily in a North Woods Architectural style blending the beauty of the
natural environment with well thought out architectural features that
invite the outdoors in.
True to their commitment to provide four star accommodations while
maintaining environmental integrity, developers and designers of Hope
Lake Lodge, Resort Spa and Indoor Water Park at Greek Peak Mountain
Resort have employed a variety of strategies and systems designed to
provide an atmosphere that is healthy, natural, environmentally
friendly, and luxuriously comfortable - right down to the mountain fresh
air. As a LEED® Silver project the design team led by Steven Finch of
the RBA Group in Charlotte, N.C. was able to achieve compelling energy,
water and material conservation. All of which are key values of the
investment team led by Tennessee Commerce and of the individual quarter
The mechanical and ventilation systems utilized are based around the
European VRV system. The energy efficient AtmosAir® system uses bi-polar
ionization technology to increase ion levels in the air, matching the
levels found at higher mountain elevations. Pristine mountain air has
long been touted for its health benefits and as one of the reasons for
the high success rate of hospitals in the Swiss Alps.
The AtmosAir system will be in all of the hallways and public areas
throughout the resort, cleansing air of allergens, dust, odors, and
particles as small as airborne viruses. Each room utilizes the varied
refrigerate heating and cooling system for highest energy conservation
and comfort. The Indoor Waterpark has both the AtmosAir system and an
ultraviolet light system to ensure the complete elimination of any mold.
Other smart design and building practices utilized are the use of a
steel super structure with metal cladding wall and roof panels by Metl-Span
at the Water Park. This assisted the design team in providing large
clear spans for the 28,000-square-foot facility necessary for housing
the water park features and amenities, provided a high thermal
efficiency building envelope, offered high recycled content and
regionally sourced materials as well as a shortened construction period
critical to the projects schedule before winter months slowed
construction progress. The use of powder coatings and Kynar® wall/roof
panel finishes provides a corrosion resistant system required inside the
high humidity and chlorine laden atmosphere.
The project will be just one of only 31 LEED-certified hotels in the
This project is the next phase of Greek Peak's overall master plan for
expansion into a four season's regional destination resort. Future
phases are planned to include a golf course, new chairlifts, and
expanded snowmaking operations, top of mountain lodge, base facility
expansion, village center, and a total of 1,539 residential units.
Sustainable Design Results:
40-45% reduction in energy consumption (from current ASHRAE codes).
15-20% reduction in water consumption generated from state-of-the
art fixtures in water closets, showers and lavatories.
Increased efficiency within the building's walls, roof and windows.
Lighting controls, including LED lighting, low-mercury content
fluorescent lamps, occupancy sensors, daylight controls, and time
clocks reduce energy consumption.
Cast in Place Concrete, Pre-Cast Hollow Core Plank and CMU utilizing
high fly ash content
Locally resourced timber framing and millwork lumber.
Locally harvested plantings utilized in landscaping eliminate need
