1 Est Volume 43 + Number 4 + Fall 2014 The Rossonian Hotel an anchor of the Five Points community A Rossonian Renaissance Becca Dierschow, Preservation Programs Assistant he Rossonian Hotel, long the cultural epicenter of the Five Points Community, is getting a makeover, in part thanks to Denver s Office of Economic Development and the Department of Housing and Urban Development. Announced by the City of Denver in 2013, the Welton Design and Development Challenge awarded $475,000 in grants to five projects along the Welton Street Corridor, a locally designated historic district. This grant program aims to spark a revitalization of the area, which started back in 1994 with the opening of RTD s D line. The Welton Design and Development Challenge was touted by the City of Denver as an opportunity for developers to pitch creative commercial, mixed-use and residential projects along the Welton Street Corridor. This design challenge aimed to support high quality projects by actively engaging longtime community residents and property owners, and encouraging bold ideas with the monetary and governmental support they need to become reality. The Rossonian Hotel is one such project. The plan is that it will be rehabilitated by Carl Bourgeois, Confluence Companies, Sage Hospitality, and Palisade Partners, a company founded by Historic Denver board member, Paul Books. The project, which will renovate the historic hotel and build a multi-story, mixed-use building to the south of the Rossonian, received $150,000 from the Office of Economic Development. The Rossonian has a long and storied history. Originally called The Baxter Hotel, it was built in 1912 by Denver businessman R. Baxter. Prolific Denver architect George L Bettcher designed the Commercial style hotel. Bettcher, while not well known today, left an indelible mark on Denver s built environment with commercial buildings such as the Denver Turnverein, as well as many residential homes in Country Club, Cheesman Park, and Capitol Hill. When the Baxter was built in 1912, Five Points was the heart of Denver s African- American community. Prejudices created de facto segregation, meaning that when it first opened, the hotel was inaccessible to the citizens who lived and worked in the neighborhood Photo: Paul Brokering around it. However, in 1920, Baxter sold his hotel to H.W. Ross, an active real estate agent in the Five Points neighborhood. Ross renamed the hotel The Rossonian and opened the Rossonian Lounge on the first floor. It soon attracted a number of jazz and blues artists who could perform at Denver s top hotels, but not stay as guests. Jazz greats such as Billie Holliday, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Louis Armstrong, Nat King Cole and Dizzy Gillespie would all come to Denver to play a set at a segregated downtown hotel before heading to the Rossonian, where they would perform another set and stay for the night. By the 1930s, over 90% of Denver s African-American community lived in the area around the Rossonian. Discriminatory housing practices such as deed restrictions and redlining prevented black Denverites from moving south of 23rd Avenue and east of High Street well into the 1950s. This redline was used by real estate agents and insurance companies to deny or limit their services to people of color looking to move outside the boundary, effectively restricting them to the Five Points and Whittier neighborhoods in Denver. Those brave enough to live outside the area were subject to threats of violence, burning crosses, and even fire bombings. Thus, the five-street intersection that gave Five Points its name became the intersection of the commercial and social lives of many of its inhabitants. The Rossonian especially became the hub around which life in Five Points revolved. In 1966, for instance, the Five Points Business Association was formed in a backroom at the hotel. The Association still boasts a strong membership including many long standing Five Points institutions. By the 1970s, however, Five Points began to change. In 1959, the Colorado Fair Housing Act made housing segregation in Colorado illegal. This act was one of the first in the country to forbid private housing discrimination based on race or religious denomination. As a result of this civil rights victory, many upper and middle class families, no longer confined to the area, left Five Points for destinations across Denver. Five Points, now devoid of a diverse economic population, went continued on page 5 Historic Denver, Inc Ogden Street Denver, CO Non Profit Org. U.S. Postage PAID Denver, CO Permit No. 756

2 Historic Denver News FROM THE DIRECTOR EVERY OTHER YEAR, along with the changing leaves, the shorter days and Historic Denver s Annual Dinner, comes election season. In just a few weeks we ll go to the polls for statewide elections, and in another six months, Denver residents will head out to vote on local issues and candidates. Historic Denver does not specifically endorse candidates, but we do strive to ensure that historic preservation is top of mind for our elected (or to-be elected) officials. We also keep close tabs on the issues and initiatives that impact historic resources in our community. This year on the fall statewide ballot, there is a particularly concerning proposed constitutional amendment that on first read might not strike you as preservation-related, but which could This year on the fall have a negative effect on the places we know and love. As a result, Historic statewide ballot, there is Denver s board has adopted a resolution a particularly concerning opposing Amendment 68. Photo: Havey Productions Amendment 68, if passed, would proposed constitutional effectively expand gambling in Colorado to horse race tracks in Arapahoe, Mesa and Pueblo counties. If this amendment amendment that on first passes, it would shift gambling into major urban communities, essentially reversing the 1990 election that expressly limited gaming in Colorado to the three mountain read might not strike towns of Blackhawk, Central City and Cripple Creek in order to promote tourism to these historically important communities and aid in their continued vitality. Expanded you as preservationrelated, but which could gambling under Amendment 68 would run counter to this objective. Additionally, passage of Amendment 68 would severely impact historic preservation funding in the State of Colorado. Since the inception of limited stakes gaming, Colorado s have a negative effect preservation community has received over $250 million in funding for historic preservation projects statewide to rehabilitate courthouses, churches, schools, homes and on the places we know commercial buildings. The grants have benefited all of Colorado s 64 counties and have stimulated economic development and revitalization in both urban and rural communities and love. around the state. Historic preservation isn t the only interest that would be hurt by the passage of Amendment 68. This move would also severely diminish the $100 million in revenues Colorado collects each year through the gaming tax that goes to support Colorado s community college system, the History Colorado Center, tourism promotion, and community economic development grants, in addition to historic preservation. If this vital funding is adversely impacted, it will place even more strain on the State General Fund. You can find more information about Amendment 68 on Historic Denver s website, with regular updates and links to recent news. We also encourage you to check our website regularly starting in the New Year, as Historic Denver will once again solicit survey responses on historic preservation from city council and mayoral candidates in advance of the 2015 local election. We will also join our colleagues at Inter-Neighborhood Cooperation (INC) and the Denver League of Women Voters to host a series of forums in advance of that election. These are great opportunities to hear directly from candidates and if you cannot attend in person, they will air on Denver s Channel 8. As members and supporters of Historic Denver we are grateful for your attention to preservation as a community priority, and we ll make it our priority to keep you informed during these important elections.

3 Fall 2014 Country Club Gardens: The Back Story Recent articles in local papers, from the Denver Post to the Denver Business Journal, have described consternation over the development of a large (30-story) residential complex just south west of the intersection of Speer Boulevard/Cherry Creek and Downing Street. Specifically, the development is proposed on the southern end of the courtyard apartment complex known as Country Club Gardens, 7 S. Downing Street. However, if you have a good memory, you may recall that news stories of a similar flavor began swirling sixteen years ago, shortly after the 22-story Country Club Tower was completed nearby. Due to a desire to protect the unusual mid-century complex, the Colorado Historical Foundation and West Washington Park Neighbors initiated a designation application for the historic International Style apartments in Country Club Gardens, designed by noted Denver architects Fisher and Fisher along with Hubbell Architects, was completed in the 1940s. The builder was Nick Petry and the landscape architect M. Walter Pesman. The complex was notable for its architectural style and the quality of the structures, but perhaps even more for its park-like setting. All units have windows into the lush (for Denver) landscape. Parking is discreetly hidden, and the composition of the buildings gives the complex a strong sense of calm and quiet. The extensive balconies along the 3-story buildings further accentuate the importance of the landscaped setting. The complex consists of five buildings, arranged in a symmetrical pattern along an east/west central courtyard and axis. 15 years ago the property owner, the Broe Companies of Denver, objected to the proposed designation, in part because the underlying R-3 zoning, in place by 1955, allowed for 30-story development on the site. The two groups (the owner and the applicants), along with representatives of the City and the Landmark Preservation Commission, agreed to negotiate a joint process. The hoped-for result: a development plan that would protect the historic integrity of the complex while allowing the owner to expect a reasonable economic return on their investment. The process took more than three years to complete, and included a study and conceptual plan by New York architect Rafael Vinoly. The Vinoly Plan as it came to be known, demonstrated that new development could be accommodated on the site without destroying the historic character of the complex as viewed from Downing Street. With this plan as inspiration, a development agreement was drafted that identified a fully protected area and a developable area. City Council approved the designation and companion development agreement on September 25, According to a Denver Post article the following day, The council voted 12-0 to approve the landmark designation for the complex s five buildings, built in 1940 on a site just south of Speer Boulevard and west of Downing Street. The council also approved a development agreement that allows the owner, the Broe Cos. of Denver, to demolish two of the five structures and to build a pair of residential towers up to 300 feet in their place. According to the same Denver Post article, this was the first time a development plan was coupled with a landmark designation. As part of the development plan, the Landmark Commission adopted design guidelines specific to Country Club Gardens, which provided the Commission with purview not only over what happened to the buildings that remained intact, but also allowed the Commission to have some influence over the design and materiality of the new towers. The agreement and design guidelines, however, did not give the commission the authority to deny the towers or to limit their 300 foot height. When made, the agreement was intended to be in effect for a 10 year period, during which time the developer would begin construction on at least one building. However, the agreement was amended in 2007 with the consent of all the original parties, which provided an additional six years for development to begin. Reactions to the development agreement were mixed. Many felt that compromise was the best possible outcome given that the underlying zoning for Country Club Gardens allowed for 30-stories and without the development agreement, all of Country Club Gardens was likely to be scraped in the next development upswing. Paul Ryan, President of the West Washington Park Neighborhood Association at the time, was quoted in the Denver Post that his group voted not to oppose the plan, because this is the best outcome we re likely to get. Ryan s comment suggests just how challenging the circumstances were. Designation without the consent of the owner is controversial, and much like today, there was intense pressure to find a compromise that achieved some of the goals of both the developer and preservation interests. While other community groups, including the Colorado Historical Foundation and West Washington Park Neighbors, took the lead on the designation application and served as the official representatives at the negotiating table, Historic Denver supported the designation of Country Club Gardens and co-authored a May 2001 Letter to the Editor of the Denver Post which highlighted the economic benefits of historic preservation and the legality of the designation, but also noted: Why then do preservationists believe so strongly that it is essential to work with rather than against the owners of historic properties? Because the real goal of historic preservation is very simple it is good stewardship If we expect property owners to respect and care for their historic buildings, we must show those stewards of our heritage an equal or greater respect. And we do this quite simply because it is the right thing to do. With 13 years separating the sentiments and circumstances of the designation/ development agreement for Country Club Gardens and our current debates over density, parking and neighborhood preservation, it is not surprising that the issue has resurfaced, but as always, a little historical perspective never hurts. = This image of the proposed development at Country Club Gardens shows which historic structures will be demolished as part of the development, as well as the areas that will be preserved. 3

4 Historic Denver News PRESERVATION BRIEFS limited-stakes gaming in the towns of Cripple Creek, Central City, and Black Hawk. The amendment directs that a portion of the gaming tax revenues be used for historic preservation throughout the state. 28% of the tax revenue generated by gambling is put into the State Historical Fund. Of that fund, 20% returns to the gambling towns to further their preservation, and 80% is directed into preservation grants throughout the state. Funds are distributed through a competitive process and all projects must demonstrate strong public benefit and community support. Grants vary in size, from a few hundred dollars to amounts in excess of $200,000. The State Historical Fund assists in a wide variety of preservation projects including restoration and rehabilitation of historic buildings, architectural assessments, archaeological excavations, designation and interpretation of historic places, preservation planning studies, and education and training programs. In the last two decades, History Colorado through SHF has invested more than $262 million in more than 4,000 preservation projects in Colorado communities in all 64 counties. The State Historical Fund makes Colorado one of the leading states in the country for historic preservation. Sayre s Alhambra Historic Denver Receives Two New SHF Grants Historic Denver is pleased to announce that we have been awarded two grants by the State Historical Fund in the most recent grant round. The announcement, made August 1st, awarded over $4.4 million to 43 preservation projects across Colorado. Historic Denver s grants will help restore two historic buildings in Denver: The Beth HaMedrosh Hagodol Synagogue at 16th and Gaylord Street, and Sayre s Alhambra, across from the Governor s Residence. The Beth HaMedrosh Hagodol Synagogue was built in 1921 for Denver s growing orthodox Jewish congregation. The congregation occupied this space until 1969, when they moved to their current home on South Monaco. The original Classical Revival brick building stood vacant for several years until The Church in the City, a non-denominational Christian congregation, purchased the synagogue in 2008 and undertook extensive interior restorations to prepare it for occupancy. One important item that had not yet been addressed was the condition of the exterior masonry of the building. Several past campaigns of repointing created a patchwork effect on the building s elevations, with incorrectly colored mortar used instead of the original charcoal-colored mortar. Historic Denver and The Church in the City are beginning a massive campaign of rehabilitation for the building by addressing the exterior masonry to ensure that it will stand for another century. Sayre s Alhambra was built by Colorado pioneer, Hal Sayre. An experienced engineer, Sayre used his extensive skills and knowledge to make a name for himself during the Gold Rush. In 1872, he moved to Denver, where he took up banking and became a prominent businessman in Denver society. While traveling in Spain, Sayre admired Alhambra Palace and was inspired to have his own 24-room palace built at 801 Logan in Denver. This Moorish style mansion, with its elegant details and carefully chosen features, is a unique example of its type in Denver. The Providence Network purchased Sayre s Alhambra in 1988, renaming it Providence House, with a mission to facilitate healing and self-sufficiency among impoverished men, women, and families suffering from addictions, abuse, and homelessness. The elaborate windows (both clear and stained glass) which give the building its distinctive Moorish character have deteriorated greatly. Providence Network has committed to restore the windows as a part of a partnership with Energy Outreach Colorado (EOC) to increase the energy efficiency of all their buildings. The State Historical Fund was created by the 1990 constitutional amendment allowing Rich in History. Style. Enduring in Beth HaMedrosh Hagodol Synagogue 4 Denver s most historic block.

5 Fall 2014 Rossonian Renaissance con t As a part of our Discover Denver city-wide survey, Historic Denver has a chance to do in-depth research on a number of buildings throughout the city. These buildings, which play a starring role in local legend, often remain anonymous and unknown to a wider audience. Here s a sneak peek at one of our most recent discoveries: Hidden in Plain Sight: The Basement Bungalow Theater Photo: Denver Public Library Western History Collection By Jolie Diepenhorst, Discover Denver Intern and Jessica Ugarte, Director of Discover Denver On the northwestern corner of West 42nd Avenue and Hooker Street in the Harkness Heights neighborhood sits a modestly-sized, cream and brown brick bungalow with flared eaves, a wrap-around porch and a Classically-inspired dormer with an open pediment and Palladian window. Looking closer at the structure, you might notice that it seems to have many more than the typical number of entrances and exits; in fact, the home at 4211 Hooker Street has six ways to get in and out of the home. Why would a single-family home need so many doors? If, in addition to housing a family, the building was designed to accommodate a theater stage, orchestra pit and seating for seventyfive audience members, extra doors would be needed to get the family, cast, crew and audience in and out! In the late 1800s or early 1900s, George Swartz moved to Denver to take advantage of Colorado s fame as a place where one struggling with tuberculosis could find relief in the dry and clean mountain air. Swartz came to Denver with a long-standing love for the works of Shakespeare, a passion he shared with his friends and neighbors through the occasional hosting of one-man Shakespeare shows. These impromptu readings were so well received that by the end of the first decade of the 1900s, he decided to build a home for his family that would also house a theater for him to pursue his passion. In 1912, the Basement Bungalow Theater opened in the basement of his family s home. At its opening, five cents purchased admission to the Basement Bungalow Theater, where the audience member could see three acts of a Shakespeare play. During the twenty seasons the theater operated, Swartz performed all thirty-nine of Shakespeare s plays, receiving wide recognition for his talent and efforts. The theater was a family affair, as his wife Jennie sewed the costumes for each play and served cookies and juice in between the acts. To supplement the proceeds from the three-act plays, Swartz offered drama classes to local children and adults. After Swartz s death in 1937, the Basement Bungalow Theater closed down and for a short time the property was the home of the presiding Bishop of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. In the 1950s, the property returned to its thespian roots when it became the Gaslight Theater, which was open for nearly twenty years. The theater would change names twice more becoming the Denver Victorian Playhouse and then the Denver Vic and hands many times more before finally being converted fully to a single family residence. While the property looks nearly the same as it did when it was first built, the stage, seating and orchestra pit no longer remain, except in the memories from those who participated in or watched the many plays that took place there. = into a tailspin. Several attempts were made by residents, business owners, developers, government officials and agencies to bring the area back to its former glory. The Rossonian was often at the heart of these proposals for redevelopment. In the 1990s, Tom Yates, the owner of the American Woodman s Insurance Company rehabilitated the Rossonian, which became office space for the Denver Urban Renewal Authority and an art gallery. But the area never really recovered the way the community had hoped. In 2001, DURA left the Rossonian, leaving the historic hotel once again empty. Now, as the entire city of Denver rides a wave of new development, a perfect combination of long time property owners, private developers, and public agencies are working together to usher in the revival of Five Points. Paul Books, president and founder of Palisade Partners, is one of the many people behind this redevelopment revival. Photo: Paul Brokering Palisade Partners currently has four projects in the works in the Five Points neighborhood, providing a mix of residential units, retail and office space. Two of their projects, 2460 Welton and the Rossonian Hotel, were winners of the Welton Challenge. Books says that the redevelopment of the Rossonian and the other projects along Welton Street present a once in a lifetime opportunity. Martin Willie, the director of project development at Civil Technology and a longtime partner on the Rossonian project has been active in the Five Points area for decades. The success of these projects, he says, is all in the timing and it is the critical mass of development that will ensure that the Five Points area be revitalized and be successful. The renaissance of the Rossonian is truly due to a groundswell of community support. A number of property owners along the block are working with Carl Bourgeois, Palisade Partners, Confluence Companies and Sage Hospitality. This consortium is further backed by public agencies such as the Denver Urban Renewal Authority (DURA), the Mayor s Office, and even the Department of Transportation. The partners are working to ensure that the rehabilitation of the Rossonian pays homage to the landmark s storied past, while meeting the needs of today s neighbors. The original three story historic building at the intersection will be restored while the southern half of the site will see the construction of a larger building. The two sections will be connected by a transitional element, facilitating the shift between historic and contemporary buildings. The architecture, while of its time, will still reference the historic building in both style and form. The whole complex will be home to two restaurants on the ground floor. Above that, a hotel operated by Denver-based Sage Hospitality (The Crawford, The Oxford) will provide around 128 hotel rooms. The upper floors of the new building will be residential units, possibly for sale. The new hotel will also be home to a jazz club bringing music back into the Rossonian at long last. By working together with community organizations and local property owners and soliciting the input of neighbors on the development at a number of public meetings, it seems as though the neighborhood has finally hit upon the recipe for economic success. Books is confident that the development sweeping throughout Five Points will encourage people of all classes and colors to feel like Five Points is still their home. The hoped for result is an authentic community created by neighbors working together to help revive one of Denver s cultural gems. = ON NOVEMBER 21ST, THE CULTURAL LANDSCAPE FOUNDATION will be holding a reception at the Denver Botanic Gardens to present Don and Carolyn Etter, former Historic Denver board members, with the 2014 Stewardship Excellence Award, in association with the Annual Meeting of the American Society of Landscape Architects. The husband-and-wife civic advocates were selected for this award in recognition of their visionary and long-standing leadership efforts to bring historic preservation, landscape architecture and cultural landscapes to the forefront in Denver. During the reception, TCLF will also unveil a new guide to Denver s diverse designed landscape. For more information and to purchase tickets, please visit 5

6 Historic Denver News 2014 ANNUAL DINNER & AWARDS THE 44TH HISTORIC DENVER ANNUAL DINNER AND AWARDS PROGRAM will take place at the Brown Palace Hotel and Spa on Wednesday, October 29. This year s awards honor a diverse set of individuals and projects that reflect an organic spirit a natural evolution of an old place into something fitting and new. Dana Crawford will be honored with the Keystone Award for lifetime achievement in historic preservation; Marilyn Quinn will be honored with the Molly Brown Award, created to honor a woman who demonstrates Margaret Brown s commitment to community; and Phil and Jane Watkins will receive the Ann Love Award, which honors those who embody the spirit of one of Historic Denver s founders, Colorado First Lady Ann Love. Community Preservation Awards will be given to the Denver Union Station, Industry Denver, Richthofen Castle, Station 26 Brewing Co., and The MetLo. Keystone Award The Keystone Award honors people who have made significant contributions over their lifetime to historic preservation in Denver. This year s recipient is Dana Crawford, one of the city s most recognizable preservationists. Mrs. Crawford initiated a concept of urban renewal that was one of the first of its kind in the United States. She pioneered the redevelopment of Denver s historic Larimer Square in the mid 1960s. Since that time, Mrs. Crawford has redeveloped more than 800,000 square feet of historic property in the city of Denver including the Oxford Hotel, the Acme Lofts, the Flour Mill Lofts, the Edbrooke Lofts and Cooper Flats Condominiums. Most recently, she was a member of Union Station Alliance, the team that redeveloped the historic Denver Union Station. To honor all the great work that Mrs. Crawford has accomplished in Denver, the Alliance named the new hotel The Crawford. Mrs. Crawford has been a long-time friend of Historic Denver. She was a founding board member and is credited with coming up with the organization s name. She also served nine years on the board of directors of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, six of those years on its executive committee. In 1995 the National Trust awarded her their highest honor, the distinguished Louise dupont Crowninshield Award. For fifteen years she worked with Preservation Action, serving as president for two years. She presently serves on the national board of Project for Public Spaces. There is no question that her contribution to preservation has been significant. Molly Brown The Molly Brown Award was created to honor women who live in Margaret Molly Brown s spirit by devoting many years to civic life in all its forms, actively engaging themselves in politics, philanthropy, arts and cultural endeavors and historic preservation, as Mrs. Brown did. Each year this award honors a woman who demonstrates this same level of passion about the world and who is willing to take the lead, speak her mind and make Denver a stronger community for everyone. This year s Molly Brown Award recipient is Marilyn Quinn. Mrs. Quinn has been a driving force for preservation in northwest Denver for a number of years. She was integral in the creation of the Ghost Historic District and spearheaded the groundswell of community support to save the Beth Eden Baptist Church at 32nd and Lowell. Through her work with the Friends of West Highlands Landmarks, Mrs. Quinn has been a passionate, rational advocate for development paired with the preservation of significant historic structures, which builds better communities for current and future generations. Ann Love Award The Ann Love Award was established in 1997 to honor individuals who may not consider themselves traditional preservationists but who have shown initiative, creativity, and commitment in preserving the history, culture and architecture of Denver. The award is named for Ann Love, wife of Colorado Governor John Love. Mrs. Love was instrumental in saving the Molly Brown House and establishing Historic Denver but never considered herself a preservationist. This year s honorees, Phillip Jr. and Jane Watkins, have been creating and preserving Denver s stained glass for the past 50 years. Stained glass has been a Watkins family tradition since 1761 and Phil Jr. is the fourth generation of Watkins men to work in Colorado. He is one of the few artists in the country who can do every aspect of stained glass from the concept of creating the design, sketching, measuring, patterning, cutting the glass, painting, glazing and finally installing the windows. Jane Watkins has a degree in Art History and operates the business facets of the studio, allowing Phil to do his art. During the past 50 years Phil, Jr. has fabricated new stained glass for over 380 churches, worked on many restoration projects, and has created thousands of residential windows. Besides restoring windows on just about every church across the state of Colorado, Phil Jr. has also worked on some very unique buildings, such as the Wyoming State Capitol, the Colorado Governor s Mansion, and the Phipps Tennis Pavilion. He restored, removed, and reinstalled the original L.C. Tiffany window in the Equitable Building and performed many restorations and repairs in the Colorado State Capitol, including a major restoration of the Senate Chambers Windows. 6
