Aspen, Colorado: Hotel Jerome Expansion
Hotel Jerome representatives have submitted redevelopment plans that call for a partial, fourth-story addition to the existing hotel and a new three-story structure behind the historic Aspen Times storefront, which would net the property 32 additional lodging pillows.
Plans submitted Sept. 5 by Jerome Property, LLC call for a three-story structure to replace all non-historic portions of 310 E. Main St., where The Aspen Times was located for more than 100 years before relocating to the Mother Lode building on Hyman Avenue in 2013.
At ground level on 310 E. Main St., a small retail space would face the sidewalk while the hotel’s fitness amenities would be relocated to that floor. The second and third stories would each contain a pair of two-bedroom lodge suites and a pair of one-bedroom lodge suites. The proposed addition is about 34 feet tall, while the existing storefront is measured at about 21.5 feet.
According to plans, the second and third stories would be set back “to preserve the scale and character” of the historic storefront.
Plans for a partial, fourth-story addition to the hotel’s three-story “west wing” would give way to two 1,900-square-foot three-bedroom suites, each with access to its own lockout bedroom, and three 800-square-foot one-bedroom units. The maximum height of the west wing addition, as measured from Mill and Bleeker streets, is 54 feet. Additionally, the three-bedroom suites as planned are beyond the commercial core zone district’s allowance of 1,500 square feet and would require a variance.
