PRIME downtown Aspen opportunity! Purchase this property and build two adjacent homes, or purchase one/both homes to be built and finished to suit by the owner/developer. Located on the Hopkins Avenue ped/bike-way, only two blocks to ''restaurant row'' and just around the corner from Paepcke Park, this south-facing property offers the convenience and proximity that is so hard to find. The 9,000 square foot lot has approvals in place for two 6,180 square foot homes – each with the majority of the living space above ground, 6 en-suite bedrooms, 2 powder rooms and 2 car garages. Impressive second level open living with views of Aspen Mountain, roof decks with hot tubs, elevators and potential access to the amenities and services from a newly-constructed boutique hotel that will replace Molly Gibson Lodge as part of the development. Preliminary design for both homes has been done by CCY Architects and building permit applications have been submitted. The property is offered for $17 million "as-is" with approvals in place, and each to-be-built home is offered for $21 million.
