Stu Hart House to be preserved
By MICHAEL PLATT - Calgary Sun




The century-old Hart House -- the famous former home of Calgary's wrestling royalty -- will likely be preserved as the centrepiece of a new townhouse development.

But first, the public will be given a chance to grapple with plans for land around the Patterson Heights mansion, where Stu Hart was patriarch to a generation of world-renowned wrestlers until his death in 2003.

Alderman Gord Lowe led the vote to put the construction plans on hold, saying it's important the public get a chance to review the blueprint, which places the Hart House at the centre of a cul-de-sac of 20 townhouses.

"I'm very concerned about the exclusion of this plan from the public realm -- that bothers me," said Lowe, who sits on the Calgary Planning Commission.

The proposal divides the old mansion into two homes, while preserving some of the garden and lawns around the property.

It's expected to return to the planning commission sometime before March.
