Denver Union Station
The Denver Union Station Historic Building closed to the public on Dec. 1, 2012. The project construction is being led by Colorado's Milender White Construction Co. and work began on Dec. 3, 2012. Construction on the whole site will continue with project construction now more than 70% complete.

Denver's Larimer Associates is handling the retail leasing of the remodeled urban transit center, which will feature more than 22,000 square feet of ground floor space divided into approximately 10 independent retail and restaurant outlets.
It will feature a 12,000 square foot public common area, the "Great Hall," and 40,000 square feet of outdoor plaza space. In addition, the redeveloped Union Station will house Amtrak and RTD as well as a new 110-room independent hotel on the upper levels to be managed by Denver's Sage Hospitality.
Denver Union Station (DUS) will serve as a multimodal transportation hub, integrating light rail, commuter rail, and intercity rail (Amtrak), as well as regional, express, and local bus service, the 16th Street Mall shuttle, Downtown Circulator, and intercity buses, taxis, shuttles, vans, limousines, bicycles and pedestrians.
DUS provides an opportunity to create a dense, mixed-use transit-oriented development adjacent to the transit facility and may include up to 2 million square feet of development on the DUS site. It will be the "Grand Central Station" of the metropolitan region as the center of the regional transit system in the heart of the city. A master plan for the site has been completed and adopted by the four partner agencies (RTD, CDOT, DRCOG, City and County of Denver).
In May 2002, the Denver Union Station project began when the Regional Transportation District (RTD), City and County of Denver, the Colorado Department of Transportation and the Denver Regional Council of Governments, partnered to develop a Master Plan and conduct an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for Union Station.
