Denver Union Station
In downtown Denver, a $4.7 billion redevelopment of Union Station will create a bustling urban center and multimodal transit hub that integrates light rail, commuter rail, Amtrak, and bus service, as well as new private development and public spaces.
The project is already taking shape with completion of its first phase: Light Rail Plaza, which comprises the new light rail station plus 40,000 square feet of outdoor plaza space.
To provide a pleasant experience for daily commuters, the plaza includes nine teardrop-shaped bench planters that incorporate softscape, shade plantings and seating while channeling pedestrian traffic and limiting vehicular access. Underlit with iLight Plexineon White 1X Series linear LED luminaires, the planters also add drama to the dynamic new public realm after nightfall.
