Summer is always a frenetically fun time at Suncadia. The whole resort is abuzz with activity, and the pleasantly familiar Suncadia soundtrack plays on loop: water splashing, bike spokes spinning, children squealing with glee. Golf balls being driven, tennis balls being served. At night, the peaceful rhythm of crickets and cicadas chirping. This summer, the sound of the rushing Cle Elum River has been especially noticeable after last winter’s heavy snowfall.
And this year, there was a bit of extra noise that accompanied the familiar summer soundtrack – that of construction and development. Not that we minded one bit. It’s the sound of progress – of a Suncadia that’s booming; a community that continues to grow and welcome new families into the fold.
Indeed, it was Suncadia’s busiest summer ever. New homes are being built in each of our major neighborhoods; ground has been broken on 26 homes so far this year, with 34 more homes in the final design review stage or awaiting a County building permit.
Other development projects include the 1.4-mile expansion of the bike path along Steam Gin Loop and the $2.3M expansion of the Cle Elum water treatment plant. Construction of the 1.75 mile extension of Swiftwater Drive is well under way along the entire length of Nelson Farm. For the next several years there will be limited development and vehicular traffic beyond the Farm area so Swiftwater Drive will provide a beautiful bicycle ride for owners and guests.
And there’s lots more to come.
First up, our beautiful new pool at Nelson Farm. We’ve recently broken ground on this project, plans for which include lap lanes, a small “rapid-river”, a vortex, sun shelves, and an interactive splash pad. Part of the Suncadia Club, the Nelson Pool will have beach-style entry, a fire pit, a sunbathing lawn, and a casual walk-up restaurant and bar. With a little cooperation from Mother Nature we hope to open the Nelson Farm Pool next June.
Also coming down the pike: Suncadia Village, which is currently in the design layout phase. It is tentatively conceived as a collection of 10-12 businesses in small buildings. Early phases of the project will likely include a family-friendly casual restaurant and a general store – plus an Owner’s Cabin. A collaboration between New Suncadia and the Suncadia Homeowner Advisory Committee, the Owner’s Cabin will be a community space available as a meeting site for Suncadia’s various community clubs, like our Wine and Dinner, Reading, Hiking, and Funcadia clubs.
Listen closely. That’s the sound of thriving.
