Westminster Station has been selected for this year's Rocky Mountain Real Estate Challenge
, in which graduate student teams from the University of Colorado and University of Denver present their plans for the area.
The presentations will be made at a dinner from 5 to 8 p.m. April 28 at the Marriott City Center downtown.
Westminster Station is the third stop from Denver Union Station for the upcoming RTD B Line
. Just 11 minutes from downtown Denver, the station is located just west of Federal Boulevard near 69th Avenue between Interstate 70 and Highway 36. The station and adjacent 900-space parking garage are slated to open this summer.
The 21-acre site offers unique challenges and opportunities for the competing student teams, which must present a plan to transform a low-density industrial site into a higher-density, mixed-use transit-oriented development. The site benefits from the city's investment in new infrastructure, as well as its dynamic community with distinct neighborhoods and a good local economy.
The Rocky Mountain Real Estate Challenge is an annual event designed to serve as a learning tool for students of the University of Colorado and University of Denver's graduate real estate programs and local business community to interface, while assisting the project sponsor with development options for the specific property.
