Denver Landmark Designation for Cadillac Service Building

The Cadillac Service Building at 1090 Cherokee Street was designated in 2022 as a Denver Landmark. The property is an example of Late 19th and Early 20th Century American Movements: Chicago style architecture and was designed by the prominent Denver architectural firm Fisher & Fisher. Upon completion in 1921, the service building was state-of-the-art and offered a comprehensive menu for Cadillac customers, including a service salesroom and departments for quick service, repairs, painting, and trimming. Each department had a wash rack to ensure that, no matter the level of service, customers would drive away with a clean car. Customers driving to the building were admitted by a doorman through electric drive-in doors, while another entrance allowed access by foot. An electric automatic elevator provided customer access to all floors, and customers were provided with a dedicated telephone line, while an internal phone system, gravity tubes, and speaking tubes connected various departments.
