Denver Union Station Tour This Saturday, August 24, 2013

Please join me this Saturday, August 24, 2013 for an informative walk around the Denver Union Station project area and a discussion about this major transformative project. Construction activity is everywhere and the project will be finished next summer, so come on down and check out all that’s going on before it’s finished!

Here’s how it works: Go to the LoDo side of the historic station at about 9:50 AM—meet at the corner of 17th and Wynkoop. Whoever shows up, that will be our tour group. We’ll start promptly at 10:00 AM and conclude around 11:15 AM at the light rail/mall shuttle station  by the Millennium Bridge.

The tour is free and open to the public; however, at the end of the tour we will collect donations for the non-profit Student Chapter of the American Planning Association at the University of Colorado Denver. You are more than welcome, however, to take the tour whether you make a donation or not. See you Saturday!


Next Denver Union Station Tour is Saturday, August 24, 2013

Here’s a quick update on our upcoming schedule for DenverInfill tours of the Union Station project:

The next tour will be Saturday, August 24, 2013 at 10:00 AM.

The tour after that will be Saturday, September 7, 2013 at 10:00 AM.

While I generally aim to do our Union Station tours the first and third Saturdays of the month, sometimes holidays, weather, travel, life… gets in the way. Therefore, as I have for the past three years, I will always add to this blog, early in the week, a post that specifically confirms that a tour will occur for the coming Saturday.

See you next on August 24!

Here’s what’s under construction right now at Denver Union Station: one of the largest multimodal transit hubs in the country, several major public spaces, the restoration of the historic station, and numerous private-sector mixed-use developments. A good reason to attend this Saturday’s tour: for the first time, we can now see the stairwell and pedestrian bridge under construction leading from the north wing building to the commuter rail platforms!
