Denver to decide whether to save 1960s buildings

DENVER, Colorado – The city of Denver is about to decide the fate of two 1960s buildings some say should be preserved.

The buildings are in the “Usonian” style popularized by Frank Lloyd Wright, and the Denver Landmark Preservation Commission has urged officials to preserve them.

But the buildings are the way of a 32-acre redevelopment project by the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center.

The Denver City Council is expected to decide Monday whether the buildings should be given protected status. The Denver Planning Board has already signed off on the redevelopment plan and said the former child development center and psychiatric day care should he torn down.
