There are nine cabins currently on the L’Auberge property that have some historic value. The JCC plan preserves six of them on-site. Part of the prior approval required that the group try to find local relocation sites for the three additional cabins.
ASPEN REAL ESTATE – The Chabad Aspen Jewish organization is moving forward with plans to build a new community center on Main Street.The Jewish Community Center (JCC) was first approved in 2006, but a series of events stalled the project. Now Chabad Aspen is seeking to phase the project’s 15,000 square feet of new construction that would redevelop the block currently home to the L’Auberge d’Aspen tourist cabins, in between Third and Fourth streets on the south side of Main Street.The city’s Historic Preservation Commission (HPC) on Sept. 14 will consider amendments to the JCC’s approval that alter some of the building materials and break up the project into two phases.
