Union Station Alliance is re-developing historic Union Station. The top two floors will be converted to a hotel, operating in conjunction with the Oxford Hotel across the street. The main floor will be developed into food, beverage and retail spaces serving the hotel and the public.
There are still plenty of opportunities to voice your ideas about how that entire first floor should be done. What shops and services could go in there and serve both the travelers and the neighbors, the business people in the area and daily transit users? Union Station will be the hub of a multi-modal transit center in Denver and a center of LoDo activity.
And, with both the Great Hall and the Wynkoop Plaza areas available, what kind of activities and events will enhance the entire development and the neighborhood?
These are big questions…still to be answered…and you can provide input.
Joe Vostrejs of Larimer Associates is leading the retail concept development. Join him, at Union Station, today at 4:30 for a focus group discussion and idea session. If you can’t make it today, the same format will occur next week, Thursday and Friday, the 26th and 27th at 4:30. (Hint: You also can enter for a doorprize!)
And, Dana Crawford of Union Station Alliance is holding three more sessions to discuss your ideas for events and activities in those big public spaces, inside and out. Her sessions, also at Union Station, are from 4 to 5:30, on Wednesdays, 25 January and 1 and 8 February.
There is time to be heard. And, people are listening. Help assure Union Station’s success!
