Commission to recognize historical projects today
Projects, property owners, architects and others will be recognized for their historic-preservation work at today’s Aspen City Council meeting, which starts at 5 p.m. at City Hall, 130 S. Galena St.
The annual Historic Preservation Commission awards recognize projects that have made an outstanding contribution to preservation in Aspen and to thank those responsible for the work.
Two projects are being honored for restoration of a historic structure this year.
First, the commission will honor the restoration of a shed at 612 W. Main St. The 19th century building originally was constructed straddling a property line, leaving it unclear who was responsible for its care. After many years of deterioration, the shed was moved onto one site and has been restored and put back into use.
Outbuildings like this traditionally have been very characteristic of Aspen’s charming alleys. Recognition for this project is given to: Neil Karbank, owner; Stryker Brown Architects; and Jerome Hatem, contractor.
The second award goes to the renovation of the Hotel Jerome. The project is one of only a few examples of an Aspen property owner being required to preserve original interior features. The renovation retained the historic character that the public enjoys at the Jerome while providing a beautiful update.
Forbes magazine named the Hotel Jerome project one of the 10 best hotel renovations in the world for 2012. Extensive exterior repairs also were completed successfully and appreciated. Recognition for this project is given to: Jerome Ventures LLC, Auberge Resorts, Rowland + Broughton, TAL Studio, RGE Group LLC, Haselden Construction, KL&A structural engineers, Beaudin Ganze Consulting Engineers and MEP Engineering.
