On a snowy spring evening in 2010, I captured the following image of Union Station in Denver.
Shortly after this image was taken the redevelopment of Union Station started with the dismantling of the platforms one of the first steps in the process.
Towards the end of 2013, from roughly the same location I took this image of the new train station canopy. At this time, the final touches were being put on the train station area. Around Union Station some of the new vertical development was taking shape which would result in the new Union Station area which we see today.
For approximately the same location I took the above images, it is quite different today. With the completion of the five story building along “Block A” the view from 16th Street towards Union Station is blocked by some of the new vertical construction.
Even though the view has changed from 16th Street in the past 9 years, the area as a whole is filled with more opportunities to capture the urban landscape around Union Station. Over the years I have been able to capture some of these changes and continue to find more different views each time I head through the area.
