Blast from the Past: Union Station’s 16th and Wewatta from Above

No place in Downtown Denver has changed as much in the past few years as the area around Denver Union Station. I took the photo below on August 11, 2009 while on a hardhat tour of the then-under-construction 1800 Larimer project.

In this view we see the area around 16th and Wewatta. What’s missing from this photo? The Triangle Building, One Union Station, DaVita Headquarters, 1601 Wewatta, Cadence, Platform, and the now-under-construction Hotel Born/1881 16th Street and 16 Chestnut projects. What’s in the photo but no longer there? The light rail tracks along 16th Street and the former platforms behind the historic station.
