The Denver City Cable Railway Building on Lawrence Street in Denver, Colorado, opened in 1889.

History

1970s

The building was bought by Jim Judd and a partner in 1972 in the hopes of saving the building from being torn down in an urban renewal project. In 1973, the Old Spaghetti Factory opened on the first floor.

2000s

In March 2007, the sale of the building from Mr. Judd to Central Development was announced. Central Development plans a $35 million hotel and retail project that will include the current building. Designed by the Buchanan Yonushewski Group the new hotel will have a glass facade and will wrap around the current building.
