Developer sought for proposed Cloverdale resort

After more than a decade of preliminary work that included extensive cleanup, environmental remediation and annexation into the city limits, plans to build a destination resort in Cloverdale have moved a little closer to reality.

Sotheby’s International Realty this week officially listed the 267 acres earmarked for the Alexander Valley Resort for sale at $27.5 million.

The majority of the property at the southern edge of town along Asti Road was originally owned and operated as a wood-processing mill, first by Georgia Pacific Corporation and later by the Louisiana-Pacific Corporation.

Clean up involved removing massive amounts of wood debris, including two wood waste landfills containing about 600,000 cubic yards of material, as well as concrete foundations, acres of asphalt paving, concrete-filled barrels, used paint containers, metal and other debris on the site. As a result, ground water and localized areas of soil were contaminated, which required treatment and monitoring.

According to Robert Sexton, Senior Vice President of Tyris Corporation, current owners of the property, “All environmental and entitlement work has been completed and the property is ready for exposure to the development community for development and construction of the Alexander Valley Resort.”

Sexton noted it has always been his company’s intent to market the property to a developer with the expertise and financial capacity to see the project through to completion

When completed, the resort will consist of a regulation 18-hole golf course, including full clubhouse facilities and a driving range, along with a 100-150 room hotel complex with a spa, restaurant, conference facilities and adjacent 40 unit resort residential units, plus 125 single family detached homes, 25 estate homes and a 2.4 acre commercial site.

Citing its charm, natural beauty and close proximity to other wine country destinations, Sotheby listing agent, Jonathon Soh, says he believes Cloverdale is the next big “boom town.”

    Very nice article. I have a number of golfing relatives that are anxious to come up and play here in Cloverdale’s “new” golf course.

    Ummm, where will the water come from? Anyone notice, Lake Mendocino is empty. No water and no flow. Does Cloverdale have an endless supply of water?

    • TyWebb

      Your toilet does, Steve. Reclaimed water is often used to provide irrigation to golf courses. Also well and rain water can be used to fill irrigation storage lakes right there on the golf course.

  • Mike

    The property has 8 wells on it Steve.

    Oh my, the traffic this will cause. Isn’t that what they all said when the Native Americans wanted a casino? Traffic and crime. Oh, that is right. If you play golf, you are a good person.
