Condo conversion approved
With final approval by the Twisp Town Council last week, Twisp River Suites owner Joe Marver said he is ready to move forward with plans to convert the hotel to condominium units.
Preliminary approval for the conversion was granted in 2012. Since then, the plans have gone through various revisions to meet town requirements, and Marver has acquired adjacent properties for tenant parking. The Planning Commission had recommend approval of the conversion.
“It is important to note that creation of the condominium, which requires approval of a Planned Development in Twisp, is a state review and approval issue. Therefore much of the paperwork pertaining to the condominiumization of the Twisp River Suites property, is that required by the state with the Town’s requirements limited to approving a plat of the Planned Development,” Town Planner Kurt Danison said in a memo to the council.
The conversion includes 10 units in the main building, and three units in the separate pet-friendly building. Separate garages are also provided for the units.
