The city of Aspen is recognizing the refurbishment of a mining-era shed and the Hotel Jerome renovation with its annual Historic Preservation Commission awards.
The awards will be handed out at today’s City Council meeting at 5 p.m. in City Hall.
HPC first will honor the restoration of a shed at 612 W. Main St. This 19th-century building was originally 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 have traditionally been 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. Extensive exterior repairs were also successfully completed 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.
Coldwell Banker Mason Morse will feature nonprofit organizations at its tent each Saturday over 18 weeks at this summer’s Aspen Saturday Market. The company has a few spaces remaining for additional nonprofits.

Komen, Aspen; ACES; Wildwood School; Aspen Education Foundation; Roaring Fork Outdoor Volunteers; Mountain Rescue; and AVSC. Limited spaces are available for the remaining Aspen Saturday Markets.
