COuNCIL REJECtS PLEA tO SAVE DENVER 7 buILDINg
Following the building owner’s requests, the City Council decided against designating the Denver 7 building at 123 East Speer Blvd. as historically significant at Monday’s council meeting.
A few residents had hoped to preserve the brutaliststyle architecture, but station management (on behalf of the Cincinnati-based E.W. Scripps Company, which owns the building and the television station) opposed the idea.
The designation would have hampered the station’s efforts to sell the building and move to a larger building, Manager Dean Littleton told The Denver Post last month.
Manhattan- and Miamibased Property Markets Group has expressed interest in buying the building, tearing it down and putting up new apartments.
