Update on 777 E. 17th Avenue (aka Dome Bar, JRs, Tony Ps)

Update on 777 E. 17th Avenue (aka Dome Bar, JRs, Tony Ps) On Friday, April 3, 2020 a phone conference was held related to the application for a Certificate of Demolition Eligibility for 777 E. 17th Avenue (also known as the former Dome Bar, JRs and Tony Ps) between a group of RNO representatives (CHUN, Uptown on the Hill, City Park West), Historic Denver, and the owners of the building. The discussion centered around three general areas of concern, which included: Generally, the group wanted to ensure that design quality of a potential future development was compatible with the neighborhood. Concerns with design of adjacent buildings was mentioned and the hope that any future development complements the Uptown/North Capitol Hill neighborhood. The potential demolition of buildings without having a development already approved and building permit released was identified as a concern. Some RNO representatives stated that a potential compromise on this would be to come to an agreement to delay demolition until a building permit is received. General discussion on the potential of incorporating the building into the development. The importance of preserving the building seems to be along a spectrum, with some representatives expressing a strong interest in preventing demolition or having the building incorporated into the development, and others potentially open to redevelopment once more information about the proposed development is provided. The group learned that the owner is not the developer for this project, and requested a discussion with the developer be scheduled. The conversation concluded with the owner offering to coordinate this meeting to discuss the project plans in further detail. If you have additional questions, you may contact the City Park West Neighborhood Association Board at info@cityparkwest.org or through the City Park West Neighbors Facebook group.
