The owner of 2329 Eliot, the Anderson House, was offered $1 million for four parcels that included two homes in the center of Jefferson Parks core residential area. Adams Development, owned by Nathan Adams, made this offer contingent on the home being designated as non-historic. His intentions where to tear down the historic home and replace it with 18 condos that, according to most recent statements, will cost $400,000 a piece.
An alternative offer by a developer to provide the owner of the property $1.1 million while preserving the home and building and increasing density to 15 homes instead of 18 was offered to the owner and the City agreed that the plans were viable under the current zoning. This plan would have allowed the owner to win, the developer to win, and the community to maintain an important part of its past.
Denver City Council voted down the historic designation of the Anderson House, costing the owner $100,000 and more importantly the community its history. Nathan Adams can still do the right thing and choose to restore this important part of our community.
