Denver International Airport’s (DIA) South Terminal Redevelopment Program marks the continuation of the original vision of the airport. The Program will create an on-site hotel and a Public Transit Center that will accommodate a rail line connecting DIA with downtown’s Denver Union Station. Gensler’s design for the South Terminal Redevelopment Program will both strengthen DIA’s connection to the city’s urban core and turn the airport itself into a travel destination.
The South Terminal Redevelopment Program is made up of three independent, yet physically integrated projects, which include the design and construction of:
- A 519-room Westin hotel and conference center;
- A Public Transit Center, including an RTD East Rail Line station and improvements to the existing concourse baggage and train systems; and
- A public plaza for community programming and events that connects the development to the existing Jeppesen Terminal.
Slated for completion in 2015, DIA’s South Terminal Redevelopment Program will serve as a catalyst for economic growth in the Denver metro region, creating nearly 1,000 jobs including 600 - 700 construction and design jobs, and more than 200 permanent hotel jobs.
