It’s time for another walking tour of the Denver Union Station project. Our next tour is this Saturday, August 4, at 10:00 AM. You’re invited!

At our last tour on July 21, we had an awesome turnout (68 people!) and Dana Crawford was our special guest speaker, giving us an overview of her team’s plans for restoring the historic station and adding in a new hotel. We had a great time, and thank you to Dana and to everyone who attended.

There is so much go on at Union Station these days! Three buildings are now under construction around the station, Wynkoop Plaza and 17th Street Gardens are both underway, and then there’s the big underground bus terminal with the commuter rail platforms on top that’s also coming along quickly. Join me this Saturday and I’ll give you an overview of all this construction goodness.

Here’s how it works: Head on down 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 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 are absolutely more than welcome to take the tour whether you make a donation or not.

See you Saturday morning… and don’t forget your camera!
