Cableland: Is it too special (and sexy) to sell?

A few weeks back, Mayor John Hickenlooper announced that the city would sell Cableland, a swanky bachelor pad turned official mayoral residence, which had been donated to Denver by the late cable baron Bill Daniels. Proceeds would go to a scholarship foundation.

But not so fast. Last night, the Denver City Council tabled the plan, and councilwoman Jeanne Faatz is among many who have questions about a potential deal. Look below to get her views, as well as to see collected shots inside and outside the bacchanal bastion built by Daniels, who Westword described as "one of Denver's most notorious playboys."
