Letter: Hunt’s lodging proposal looks promising

Hunt’s lodging proposal looks promising

I was at the City Council meeting until 1:30 Monday morning. My friends and I have been watching the unhappiness in town for a long time. They are circulating petitions now to “Keep Aspen, Aspen.”

I think Base1 (Domino’s site) has great potential if the developer, Mark Hunt, comes to a solution for parking. He is coming to code on our other issues: FAR, height (very close and he can get there) and housing. This is actually an affordable lodge project; unlike any of the others, he is not asking for free-market residential that most developers go to bed salivating over.

The proposed interior drawings are beautiful. The exterior needs work in materials and design so it cannot appear as a mini-me of the much reviled big-box structures that have sprouted by bad birthing and lawsuits.
