DENVER BUSINESS JOURNAL - Gates Corp. has obtained demolition permits for four buildings at the old Gates Rubber plant on South Broadway in Denver.

The buildings ? Units 10, 11, 13 and 41 at 999 S. Broadway ? are all that remain of the high-profile, aging factory, which has most of its windows broken out.

The plant is located south and west of the intersection of Interstate 25 and South Broadway.

Two other Gates buildings, on the east side of Broadway, were sold years ago and renovated for office space.

But it's not clear when cranes and bulldozers will arrive at the manufacturing site. Asked about the pulled permits, a Gates spokesman said Wednesday that the company simply wants to be ready, with permits in hand, when a final decision is made to take down the buildings.
