Westminster Regional Rail Transit-Oriented Design

During the master planning process of the adjacent Little Dry Creek Park, Matrix was retained by the City of Westminster to prepare the schematic design for the Westminster Commuter Rail Station. Located along the Regional Transportation District’s Northwest Rail Corridor, Westminster Station represents an important gateway into the southern portion of the city and the adjacent transit-oriented development. Matrix re-designed the Denver Transit Partners’ (DTP) station plan to embrace the creekfront park and provide a wide range of opportunities to experience natural systems within the urban environment. The centerpiece portal canopy visually reinforces the station’s role as a gateway into the city and provides sweeping views of the park. Upon completion of the schematic design, Matrix assisted the City with the design review of DTP’s final construction documents.
