The South Terminal Redevelopment Program aims to reinvent the way Denver International Airport (DIA) connects to the city — providing travelers a swifter gateway to downtown Denver — while turning the airport into a travel destination. The project, an addition to the existing Jeppesen Terminal, will provide infrastructure and connections for future terminal expansion. Program elements include a new train station servicing the RTD FasTracks commuter rail connection to and from downtown, a new 500-key Westin hotel and conference center, and an outdoor public plaza linking the hotel, conference center and train station to the Jeppesen Terminal. Slated for 2015 completion, the airport seeks to improve passengers’ travel experience before they take flight and after they land.
