After years of master planning, 20 acres of rail lines near Denver’s Beaux Arts Union Station have been converted into a multi-modal masterpiece of transportation. 'It fits the purpose,' says Roger Duffy, design partner at Skidmore Owings and Merrill. 'It brings it up to the 21st century.' Yes – it does. With the opening of an underground bus terminal, its 22 gates skylit and accessible at grade level, the complex now offers rail, light rail, bicycle, and pedestrian pathways.
