    As part of the Denver International Airport’s South Terminal Redevelopment Program, architect Santiago Calatrava just unveiled his design for a new rail station at the airport. The new design reveals a rail station that will add a rail link from downtown Denver that to the airport. Besides this ambitious rail project, the plans also show a hotel, a retail plaza and a rail bridge over Pena Boulevard. The rail line will travel across a new rail bridge over Pena Boulevard and then head straight into the heart of the commercial plaza and adjacent hotel. On alighting from the train, travelers will enter the airport through bright, white vaulted rooms with translucent ceilings that let in natural light. Of course, you can expect Calatrava to add his signature style of sweeping arches and impressive facades to this recent project as well.


    Denver International airport is one of the few international airports without a rail link. Thus, this new project will not only correct this problem but also give rise to new facilities at the airport.
