Over my head but I have a followup question.

Is this a full time gig or part time?

This is a pretty awesome plan from the city imo - https://www.denverpost.com/2019/08/2...il-urban-loop/

Especially since it feels difficult to get to Arapahoe Square and Cap Hill on any trails or bike lanes. RiNo is easy since you have the Platte River trail nearby and the bike lanes on Brighton Blvd. Cherry Creek is surprisingly easy to get to via bikes because of the Cherry Creek trail.

You may have grandchildren before this is finished.
But Denver appropriating $850,000 for the 1st phase design is impressive.

As you point out Downtown is blessed by the Cherry Creek Trail and the Platte River trail.

It might not be as nice as Aurora but it's not bad

Because I just posted about the TOD at Evans Station it's worth a note here as well.

The SW Corridor light rail line opened in July of 2000. That's nearly two decades ago. Any TOD for the forlorn Evans Station? Only crickets until the affordable housing Evans Stations Lofts were built a few years ago. But recently Greystar added 200 units and now there's a new condo project and an 8-story apartment project approved for take-off. Given the nearby industrial flavor of this area, it seems destined to get hot.

And it only took two decades for Evans Station TOD to get hot which piggyback's nicely on my above comments about Boston, time and how things can change given enough of that commodity in Denver.

United just announced that their previously seasonal service from Denver to London is now year-round: https://denver.cbslocal.com/2019/08/...round-flights/

I was hoping for a more exciting international flight announcement (maybe a direct to China or South America?) but this is what we got.

Still good news. This will be the first time United has ever flown Denver to London year-round. The new Frankfurt flight on United is also being flown this winter, so that means London, Frankfurt, and Tokyo are all daily, year-round on United from Denver.

It also probably helped United that Norwegian cut Denver-London this winter, though that was only being flown 2-3 times a week.
