The plan for the historic station is big: restaurants and shops on the ground floors and a boutique hotel affiliated with the nearby Oxford Hotel on the top floors. The development team in charge of the renovation, Union Station Alliance, says the remodeled station will feature "more than 22,000 square feet of ground floor space divided into approximately ten independent retail and restaurant outlets, complemented by a 12,000-square foot public common area, the 'Great Hall,' and 40,000 square feet of outdoor plaza space." The station will also house Amtrak and RTD, "as well as feature a 110-room independent hotel on the upper levels to be managed by Denver's Sage Hospitality."

"Interest in the space has been very strong and we are now actively working with several prominent Denver chefs and retailers," Joe Vostrejs, the chief operating officer at Larimer Associates, which is handling the retail leasing of the remodeled station, said in a statement. "We understand the people want a strong local presence here as this will be a major new focal point for downtown Denver. And we're also focused on offering services and goods that are important to transit riders and visitors."
