The properties, which include the Little Annie’s building, the former Huntsman Gallery building and a parking lot at the intersection of East Hyman Avenue and Hunter Street, are listed for $19.9 million. The asking price on the same properties was $39 million in August 2007…The lender, Downtown Aspen Investments LLC, claims the Dingilian family, owners of the Aspen Legacy properties, defaulted on a loan that has a current balance of $13.8 million. A foreclosure sale is scheduled Jan. 4, 2011.
