Land Acquired for Central Park Station

August 22, 2012 RTD/Commuter Rail No Comments

In July, RTD acquired 11.6 acres of land from Forest City (now Brookfield Properties) to complete the assemblage of land for Central Park Station.  Central Park Station is a 20 acre multimodal transportation facility at Smith Road and Uinta, which will include a commuter rail station, bus transfer facility and Park-n-Ride lots.

The station will be part of the 23-mile East Corridor commuter rail line, which will operate between Denver Union Station and Denver International Airport (DIA).  The station, scheduled for completion in January 2016, will be a significant activity center, serving as a key Park-n-Ride for airport travelers (1,500 spaces), as well as one of RTD’s largest bus transfer facilities.
