Our friend Bill Mosher got some good press this weekend in the Denver Post. Bill is the project manager for the public side of our public-private partnership at Union Station. He’s doing a spectacular job.
Our model of downtown Denver creates some noise around Riverfront Park. We have residents visit to see the future of their neighborhood, tourists use it as a map or guide to the city and skaters gawk at the size and detail. Well, it’s no secret that we’ve updated the Union Station portion of the model, but now, we have power! Riverfront Park and Union Station are now lit. Stop by our Sales Center to hear what’s to come in the Mile High City.
There’s a new addition on the model at Riverfront Park. I’ll give you a hint, at completion, about 200,000 people a day will come walking through. There’s a lot of trains involved to. And now, you can see it all, in a very small scale. Please, stop by and check it out. (Oh, and unless you want to comment, there’s no reason to quick through, this is the end of the post. Little tease, I know.)
Ah, finally. Here’s a balanced and appropriately non-sensational piece on the past, present and future of Union Station. It’s a legacy project, staged for our backyard, that will firmly root Denver down on the list of America’s best cities. Yet, it’s a highly complicated venture. And expensive.
If you’d like the dizzle on what’s been coined as the Mother of all TODs, read this. It’s refreshingly comprehensive, and more thoughtful than the typical sound byte coverage we’ve seen in the press over the past two years.
