Visualizing Union Station Boom From Above

Last month, we posted an aerial showing the Cherry Creek boom from a unique aerial perspective. Today, we are going to do the same exact thing in the Union Station neighborhood. This is for projects behind the historic station that are under-construction or have been completed after 2012.

Here is the annotated aerial with the key in the upper right corner. This is a tricky angle as you can’t see all of the development (such as Triangle Building and 1601 Wewatta), but it gives you a good idea of what has gone up in just four years.

Here is a clean aerial for your viewing pleasure.

Now for the mind blowing part. This photo was taken from the top of the DaVita World Headquarters back in 2012. Not a single project, except for Cadence, was under-construction let alone complete.


How about a bonus photo? I turned my trusty drone towards Downtown Denver and captured this really neat perspective of Coors Field!

We have a lot of infill posts coming your way this week!

    they really should put a parking garage on that parking lot between 19th/20th.

      I agree. This spot represents a huge waste of opportunity. Below ground parking would at least quadruple the parking availability and make way for commercial leasing opportunities above. How is this not happening?

    Four years? Mind boggling.
