Union Station Advocates has launched a campaign to bring back the Welcome Arch to Union Station, and will be holding a big gala in Union Station in October as the kickoff fundraiser event.

This is going to be Downtown’s biggest social event of the season and a great way to help contribute to the Union Station project as construction gets underday. Don’t miss it! Go to www.blacktie-colorado.com to RSVP. Enter event code: USA 10/15. Tickets start at $40.

Will the new Welcome Arch be a faithful historic replica or a modern interpretation of the original? While it is certain the new Welcome Arch won’t be placed in its original location at 17th and Wynkoop, there are several interesting possibilities for its placement within the Union Station Transit District site. The preferred location and Arch renderings may be released soon.
