Notice:

The Denver station has been temporarily relocated from the historic Union station to 1800 21st Street at the intersection of Wewatta Street near Coors Field in the Prospect Neighborhood. When completed in the spring of 2014, Union Stationís redevelopment will include a new commuter station as part of a multimodal hub.  For more detail, please click HERE (pdf).

Update:

Union Station is underwent a $500-million re development into a regional, intermodal transportation center. Amtrak moved into the redeveloped terminal on February 28, 2014, as the overall station remodeling and hotel construction drew to a close. Union Station was built in 1894, significantly rebuilt in 1914, and purchased by the Regional Transportation District in 2002. (Source - Amtrak Fact Sheet, Fiscal Year 2014, State of Colorado)
