Denver Union Station, Crown Jewel of the RTD Transit System
Feb 19, 2019
Join DAF for an insightful look at Denver's iconic Union Station. Joe Christie, our guide and Project Director for RTD's EAGLE plan to expand transit across the Denver metro region, will show us how the development plans for the public realm spaces integrated seamlessly with the buildings around the transit facilities and historic building. Tour-goers will see and discuss the RTD Union Station Transit project, including the lightrail station, 22-bay underground regional bus terminal, the commuter rail terminal and the redevelopment of the historic structure into the Crawford Hotel. The tour will also incorporate a discussion on the planning and coordination by RTD, the City, utility owners and adjacent developers to minimize conflicts and re-work during and after RTD construction as the rest of the buildings in the Central Platte Valley were constructed.
The tour group will meet at the Union Station lightrail station located near 17th and Chestnut, right in front of the trains next to the exhaust stacks from the underground bus facility. Public parking is available at some of the nearby buildings, but use of RTD transit is highly recommended. You can use the bus, rail or mall shuttle.
