Please join us at Glass House today, Saturday October 1st for an Open House. From 1-3pm we will hold open several Glass House residences. There will be studios, one bedrooms and two bedrooms available to preview. The tour begins in the Glass House lobby at 1700 Bassett Street. This is a great opportunity to tour the building if you have never seen it or catch up on current inventory. I hope to see you there.
The digging on the second half of the bus tunnel is underway. The excavation work will go through the end of this month and you can see the pile of dirt getting bigger by the day. Once the excavating is finished, the concrete work will begin on the substructures and walls. In another few months the second half will be connected to the first half of the tunnel already completed.
This morning I attended the opening ceremony for the new light rail station at Union Station. It was great to see community leaders, Denver residents and business people gather to celebrate this great accomplishment. The project took about 18 months to complete and it came in on budget! The new station and 16th Street Free Mall ride being right at the base of the Millennium Bridge is so great Denver and all of the Riverfront Park residents. Additionally, the 18th Street Pedestrian Bridge also known as the Union Gateway Bridge is now linked to the light rail platform. The traffic on that bridge will significantly increase now that the Light Rail station is complete. This is a great accomplishment for the city and the first step to making the Union Station redevelopment a reality. If you’re downtown, I suggest going and checking it out, it’s amazing how much has changed in only 18 months!

The light rail at Union Station will be shut down for the next three weeks as they make the transition to the new station located parallel to the Consolidated Main Line. Tomorrow, July 23rd, the C and E lines will stop there service at the 10th and Osage Station. At that station you will be able to change to the F, D or H trains that will take you to 18th and California or there will be busses that will shuttle you to Union Station and the other stops that are closed along the way. The new station is set to open on August 14th. It will be a little more challenging to get to LoDo over the next few weeks, but to see the first step of the redevelopment completed is an incredible accomplishment!
