Charthouse Lodge - Aspen Resort Landscape Architecture
The Charthouse Lodge is a 11-suite fractional ownership lodging project proposed for a 12,000 square foot property in Aspen that formerly contained a one-story restaurant use. Because of the limited size of the lot, the application required a Planned Unit Development process that would allow more height and floor area than normally permitted by the land use code. This required careful site design, along with special attention to neighborhood interests and City staff review. The current design proposal incorporates the 11 suites, along with two affordable housing units and a ground-floor restaurant with an outdoor seating area. Special infrastructure activities included designing a sidewalk extension by narrowing the existing street in order to retain five significant mature trees to the front of the building, as well as participation in a pedestrianization project for the street to the rear of the building. The approval process is complete and construction is expected to begin in 2006.
