DENVER (CBS4) – A Denver diner could be spared the wrecking ball. However, supporters of Tom’s Diner on Colfax Avenue only have a few weeks to save the restaurant.
The restaurant is up for sale, and the owner applied for non-historic status. That makes it easier to tear the building down for redevelopment.
The city’s Landmark Preservation Office announced the diner is potentially historic, on Friday.
Supporters have until June 7 to apply for landmark designation.
If no applications are filed, the restaurant will be demolished.
