Denver’s Union Station Redevelopment is underway and miraculous changes are happening daily.
Frank Cannon of Continuum Partners gave a special presentation to Kentwood Real Estate Brokers and Managers last Friday with exciting photos and an update on what the “new” Union Station will look like in just a couple of years.
Continuum Partners and East West Partners have teamed up on this massive project. It will transform the neighborhood into a vibrant multi-modal transportation hub right in the heart of downtown Denver.
In Denver’s pioneer days trains were built to Cheyenne, Wyoming, by-passing the “Queen City of the Plains.” Denver’s business community, having none of that, raised funds to build trains from Denver to Cheyenne. A visionary private/public partnership that transformed our city.
Today’s visionary private/public partnership is also transforming Denver. There will be trains, light rail, and a bus system all terminating at Union Station. Predictions are for in excess of 205,000 daily trips of passengers going through the station.
There will be a hotel housed within the station, restaurants, shops, condos, apartments and office buildings. Plans for the outdoor space include a European feeling plaza and an interactive outdoor water feature.
Check out the construction daily via their Union Station Web Cam!
