Public Open House for New City Office Plan
Aspen, Colorado – December 9, 2016 – The public is invited to an open house on Tuesday, December 13 from 11:30am-1:30pm in the Wheeler Lobby to learn about the new Aspen City Offices at Rio Grande and below Galena Plaza. The project team will update the public on the recently submitted land use application including the project schedule and implementation process as well as describe the physical design features. Staff will be present to record the community’s input.
Based upon City Council’s direction from the September 13, 2016 work session, the city’s Capital Asset staff directed its design team to pursue schematic design and programming for a new City office building and renovation of the existing Rio Grande building. The proposal for the new City Offices building will replace the existing ACRA offices and includes a planned connection to the Rio Grande building below Galena Plaza. An extension of Galena Plaza is planned to preserve the open view corridor from Red Mountain to Aspen Mountain and tie the two buildings together with public amenity space.
