Tom's Diner Has Made History 24/7 on Colfax...but Is It Historic?

In May, would-be developers of 601 East Colfax Avenue applied to have the property declared non-historic. On June 14, fans of Tom's Diner stepped in and filed an application with Denver's Landmark Preservation Commission to have the classic 1967 coffee shop designated a landmark. The issue now moves to a public hearing before the commission, then on to Denver City Council. If the landmark application is denied, Tom's Diner could be demolished in the next five years.
