At face value, eight townhomes aren’t that big of a deal.
But it’s the start of a new era for the Hermitage Club, after the company secured Act 250 approval for its master plan earlier this year.
“It’s thrilling,” said Brendan McGrail, director of communications for the Hermitage. “The real estate thing in our business is such a driver of our revenue, that to have it stalled out while we awaited the Act 250 was tough. You see the effects of that in our tax bills and what we’re trying to catch up with now.”
With plenty of people waiting to move into residences planned by the Hermitage’s private ski resort at Haystack Mountain, McGrail said, “It’s a matter of getting it done and getting people in.”
