DENVER — There's a new building on the corner of Speer Boulevard and Colfax Avenue.
The site, which housed the Denver Diner for 30 years, is now home to a Chase Bank branch. The new branch officially opened on Friday.
Denver Diner closed in January 2021 after struggling during the pandemic.

The building sat empty for nearly 11 months before it was bought by JPMorgan Chase for $5 million in November 2021.
The restaurant's iconic sign was taken down last July and donated to the Colfax Avenue Museum, which currently has an exhibit at History Colorado. The Colfax Avenue Museum is looking for a permanent home after its previous location was closed due to repeated flooding.
At the time the Denver Diner closed, the restaurant's general manager said they were hoping to relocate.
"We have plans to relocate; we just haven't found the perfect spot yet," Konstantine Skordos said. "We want the people of Denver to know that we are grateful for the continued support over the last 30 years. We will be back better than ever."
There have not been any other announcements about a possible reopening.
