The Governor was against it. The Mayor was for it. The People spoke and 4A won! In the not soon enough future, Denver will be home to an increasing important network of tracks.
Currently, the Light Rail line runs from Santa Fe Dr through downtown to Five Points. When The People were debating it’s merits prior to being built a few years ago, the same naysayers were convinced the Light Rail would be a failure.
It won, and within days of opening it became very clear the only “failure” about the system was the lack of available parking. DUH.
So now, as part of T-rex the next generation of Light Rail is nearing completion. Along I-25 the parking structures are already built as are most of the stations. Observed along the line are clusters of new construction, apartment, loft and shopping complexes all patiently waiting to be “connected” to the city.
Do you suppose these homes will appreciate in value?
