Landmark Preservation planners review all applications for total demolition citywide, including for structures that are not local landmarks or that are not in historic districts. This requirement helps preserve Denver’s history by providing the community an opportunity to protect buildings that prove to have historic, architectural, geographic or cultural significance. Properties that do not have potential to be Denver landmarks are cleared to seek a total demolition permit. If a review reveals that a property may qualify for historic designation, total demolition may not be allowed.
Owners of non-landmark, non-historic-district properties who are not currently planning demolition but who want increased certainty about a potential future demolition may apply for a Certificate of Demolition Eligibility, which involves a similar level of review. If a Certificate of Demolition Eligibility is issued, a property owner or owner's agent may proceed with a demolition application without further Landmark Preservation review for a period of five years.
