rtd / wadsworth
we teamed with gensler, sa miro, and swinerton builders to win the largest RTD park n' ride station along the west line, located at 13th and wadsworth boulevard in lakewood. safety, user comfort, cost effective materials, and ease of maintenance drove the design of the plaza and surrounding landscape and provide long-term value for RTD and the city of lakewood.
the open plaza also provides the opportunity to balance peak hour transit with other uses by creating flexible spaces for activities such as a farmers market, art fairs, and coordinated city events. the plaza includes clean lines, large open spaces for ease of movement, street trees for shade, seat walls for sitting, and a planting barrier to separate vehicular traffic on wadsworth boulevard from the interior pedestrian space of the plaza.
