Still thinking of 9/11, adding it to the list of the many sad moments this year.

It’s hard to believe that 9/11 happened 19 years ago. The shock and sorrow still resonates.  And in this year, with a divisive political situation and a virus that has been claiming so many lives, I felt this morning I needed to think about 9/11.  Five years ago on a chilly January day, I visited …

We may not see Carmen Court again for 90 days, unless something happens. Or sooner.

This morning, the Land Use, Transportation and Infrastructure committee discussed the extension for about 5-ish minutes, so that owners and applicants may look for a plan for Carmen Court’s future.  The extension would last for 45 days until it goes back to that committee to October 13. Then, about 2 hours and 30 minutes later, …

Having a new date every Tuesday morning involves Carmen Court. It’s always a nail-biter.

On August 18, the Denver City Council’s Land Use, Transportation and Infrastructure committee ran out of time to consider whether a landmark application on Carmen Court should be moved to the full city council. Carmen Court, at 900 East 1st Avenue and Emerson Street, involves six condos built in 1925, an ensemble that is loaded …

What happened to the 2020 Census, lost in the fog of politics and other issues?

The great white whale is waiting — at some point in 2021.

Over the past 6-or-so months, I have been wrapped up dealing with health, food, keeping touch with friends, devouring politics, a churning stomach because of this administration, and on and on. So when I encounter something from, say, last June or November, it seems to be from the Stone Age. Earlier this week, BusinessDen featured …

Carmen Court will be reviewed by Denver City Council to decide if the condos will be considered a landmark. At the end of this post, I will clear up a mistake.

On Tuesday, August 4, the Denver Landmark Preservation Commission meeting concerning Carmen Court was well attended. There were some speakers who did not believe Carmen Court should be landmarked. There were more speakers who did believe Carmen Count should be landmarked. One speaker said it needed “a higher bar.” A few also sided with the …

Carmen Court has been written about everywhere. But Tuesday it is getting its time in the sun.

The future of Carmen Court, at 900 East 1st Avenue, will be the main issue on Tuesday’s meeting of the Denver Landmark Preservation Commission. I expect it will be interesting, infuriating, and downright incredibly eye-opening. After all, the three people who chipped in money to cover the application weeks ago to designate Carmen Court as …
