Update on Sternberg’s Hillcrest Apartments

See more photographs on Colorado Preservation’s Facebook Page:

– Potential one or two units for sale
– Historically intact compound of 6 units plus garage space for 4 vehicles
– Designed by Eugene Sternberg
– Constructed in 1958
– 500 square feet
– Great location – 2 blocks north of Lincoln Avenue in Steamboat Springs
– Incredible views of the ski area, Emerald Mountain, and downtown
– Opportunity to motivate preservation of a National Register-eligible property

OPPORTUNITY: Historically, since 1958, the ownership was shares in the Hillcrest Apartment Association. Now, the process is underway to condominiumize the six units. Brad Bartels, project manager and owner of Unit #6, is confident that the condominiumizing will be approved by summer 2011 and will be governed by a condominium association.

The Association decided in October 2010 that redeveloping the property was not feasible in the current real estate market and will, likely, soon select a contractor to begin to repair/rehabilitate/insulate the butterfly roof and interior drains, replace the sewer line and sidewalk, and repair the sewer line. Informal estimate of cost per unit is approximately $20,000 (Fred Conrath, owner, Unit #3).

2009, 2010 Annual cost/revenue per unit (for the past decade, most or all of the units are rentals.
$8400-9600   Rental income per year. Approximately $700-800/month.
$1600-1800   Annual assessment for property taxes, maintenance, water/sewer

Preservation for a Changing Colorado

The 2017 update, Preservation for a Changing Colorado, resulted from a partnership between Colorado Preservation and History Colorado and Colorado Preservation, Inc. Prepared by Clarion Associates, the new report and accompanying website document the economic benefits of rehabilitation projects, analyzes property values and neighborhood stability in local historic districts, and summarizes the increasing impact of heritage tourism, private preservation development and the success of Colorado’s Main Street program. In a key finding, researchers found that for every $1 million spent on historic preservation in Colorado leads to $1.03 million in additional spending, 14 new jobs, and $636,700 in increased household incomes across the state! The 2017 report also considers the important role preservation plays in helping Coloradans provide new spaces for creative communities and co-working, create and sustain meaningful places, respond to the state’s changing demographics, and address climate concerns.
