The Downtown Durango Hotel (located on East 2nd Avenue between 4th and 5th Streets) is still moving along. Below is a bullet list of where things remain with the project:
City staff has wrapped up our building permit review for the project.
Because the developer will be utilizing modular construction for the hotel units, the State of Colorado Department of Local Affairs (DOLA) Division of Housing also had to sign off on the modular building plans.
On January 28, 2021, the City issued a Foundation Permit to the developer.
The developer has stated that they plan to start the foundation construction in the spring, and are working on a construction plan and schedule for this phase.
Once the City has a construction plan and schedule that we all agree with, we will meet with the adjacent neighborhood to walk them through the proposed construction process.
As part of the shoring wall maintenance, the developer has just completed pot-hole repairs in the alley between their project site and the residence along East Third Avenue.
City staff will continue to monitor the site and shoring wall.
