Denver is one of the few international airports without a rail link — a vital source of efficient and low-carbon transportation. The new expansion will bring important new facilities to the airport and will connect it to the city core at Union Station with a FasTrack line terminating at Calatrava’s new arched transit station. The rail line will travel across a new rail bridge over Pena Boulevard and then heads straight into the heart of the commercial plaza and adjacent hotel.

    If you’re going to the city of Denver you won’t even need a car! No parking fees, no gas….sounds pretty convenient to me. Imagine the jobs it’ll create?? I can live without seeing DIA…I think this is a work of art that’s even better than DIA.

    It is a crime to cover the best iconic building in Denver with this ugly building

    Who will pay for the cost of the hotel? Why are we blocking the image of the best airport in the USA with this Great Wall of China?
