Redevelopment plans for the Sky Hotel, Aspen’s hot spot apres ski lounge and hotel located next to the Little Nell Hotel and the Aspen Mountain Gondola, are in the works. It will be the second attempt to redevelp the hotel after a 2005 attempt to double the size of the existing structure, from 42,000 sq ft and three stories to 100,000 sq ft and four stories, failed due to a tied Aspen City Council vote for approval. The developers are Aspen Club Lodge Properties LLC. The redevelopment plans coincide with the city’s current initiative to devise lodging business incentives for redeveloping Aspen’s aging bed base.
