Denver Revises Design For South Terminal Redevelopment

Denver International has unveiled a revised concept for its South Terminal Redevelopment Program.

The new design is very similar to the concept that was revealed in July 2010, according to the airport. Design changes include:

  • A reduction in the overall square footage of the program;
  • A reduction in the size of the train station and the amount of structural steel planned for that project;
  • The train station platform canopy has been extended and its shape has been changed;
  • The hotel will be one floor shorter than the original plan; and
  • The current design will be built to meet a $500 million budget, rather than the original estimated cost of $650 million.

"This design affords us a number of efficiencies and cost savings and is still visually stunning," said Aviation Manager Kim Day. "We are still on track to turn the train station over to RTD [regional transportation district] for testing at the start of 2014, and open our new hotel in 2015."

Construction on the South Terminal Redevelopment Program began in the fall 2011 when crews started utility and access work.
