- — Conrad Swanson, The Denver Post

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.
