ASPEN REAL ESTATE – The Lift One Lodge project at the base of Lift 1A on Aspen Mountain on the east side of South Aspen Street between Dean Street received conceptual approval from City Council last night, despite the protests of one council member and concerns from the mayor that the project would repeat the mistakes of other recent base area redevelopments.The 3-1 vote, with Councilman Torre dissenting, allows the project to move forward to final approval. During this next round of hearings, which are likely to begin some time next year, Lift One Lodge developers will try to secure the now shaky support of Mayor Mick Ireland and Councilman Steve Skadron.
