Our next Union Station walking tour is this Saturday, April 21, 2012 at 10:00 AM. According to the forecast, the weather should be perfect!

Here’s how it works: Head on down to the LoDo side of the historic station at 17th & Wynkoop at about 9:50 AM. Whoever shows up, that will be our tour group. We’ll start promptly at 10:00 AM and conclude around 11:00 AM at the new light rail station by the Millennium Bridge. The suggested donation for the tour is $10 per person and all proceeds go to the non-profit Student Chapter of the American Planning Association at the University of Colorado Denver, but you’re welcome to attend regardless of what you can donate.

Prep work has started on the two wing building sites as well as Wynkoop Plaza, and significant progress has been made on the second half of the underground bus facility. On the tour, we’ll see and talk about all four aspects of this major project: the transit elements, the public spaces, the new private-sector developments, and the renovation of the historic station.

Join me this Saturday to get all the details on this massive civic investment that will transform Downtown Denver!
