Thank You for helping to complete
Phase 1 of the Gym Renovation!

From this . . .

. . . to THIS!

A room with windows.

Onto Phase 2!

THANK YOU for helping
to raise $90,000
for the first phase of the project.

We are working to raise $110,000 $80,000 by the end of 2017 to complete renovation. 

After months of planning, designing, and fundraising, the Gym renovation is underway. Dust is flying and the holes for the windows are getting bigger by the day.  We could have a window installed in early May and plan to have all the new windows and doors in by the end of May.


  • Cutting windows and doors into walls
  • New windows
  • New Doors
  • Repainting the space


  • Window shades
  • New flooring
  • Sound and lighting for events
  • Acoustic improvements
  • Additional tables and seating

We also need a new name for the space.

The Gym Renovation Project will not only result in daylight streaming into the space from windows, doors and skylights, we want to upgrade the space so it can host a much greater range of events – during the day as well as at night. Our Calaway Room already hosts an amazing range of events and activities and we’d like the gym to be able to do the same – at 3x times the size.

Contact Colin at 963-3221 x3 or by email to arrange a tour of the project.

Thanks to the Gates Family Foundation for a $12,500 grant and the Thrift Store of Aspen for a $5,000 grant for the Gym Renovation.

Your contribution to support the Gym renovation campaign helps the Third Street Center in three distinct ways:

  • Enhance an already important community asset and help it meet community needs for space for workshops, events and celebrations.
  • Increase Third Street Center earned income potential. As an independent nonprofit organization, 85% of our operating revenue is earned through below-market leases and rentals.
  • Build on the legacy of turning old infrastructure into new possibilities through innovative thinking and community partnerships.
