Connecting People…

Iron Horse’s unique expertise in the transportation market paired with our background in mixed-use developments make us an ideal partner in the design of private development and transit-oriented developments. These developments may provide users with a combination of uses in a central location, it may be a place of residence, work, dining, shopping, entertainment, or hospitality, often brought together by the access to public transportation.  The projects Iron Horse has completed are as diverse as the uses being anchored by transit stops across the nation.  Our staff has experience in retail stores and restaurants, hotels and conference centers, multi-family residential towers and sports stadiums. Iron Horse’s insightful team provides clients with real time, accurate design options. Through collaboration with the members of our project teams, we rejuvenate and improve the communities in which we work.

 Millennium Bridge  The Millennium Bridge is an iconic landmark in Denver initially built to connect the Denver Lower Highlands neighborhood to the Lower Downtown and Union Station neighborhood by spanning the industrial railroad tracks which previously acted as a barrier between the two areas. This unique structure, was designed and engineered by Arup. The underside of the metal bridge needed protection from the corrosive effects of the electromagnetic current running through the overhead catenary wires powering the light rail below. The rails also needed protection from projectiles. Iron Horse was tasked with providing a design solution that solved all of the technical requirements while fitting into a very tight envelope and maintaining the bridge’s original design and structural integrity. Role: Associate Architect to AECOM, SOM

 The Meridian  The Meridian Tower is a successful, award-wining example of Transit Oriented Development (TOD), high-end community living and was the second phase of the Landmark development. This urban infill TOD project in Southeast Denver required initial site studies, program evaluation, and massing models to conform to strict city ordinances to meet the target market and developer objectives for return on investment (ROI) pro forma projections.

 TEQ Analytical Lab  This lab planning and tenant finish design project is located in the Fitzsimons campus, and was built to perform containment testing, residual solvent testing and potency analysis for cannabis. All tests completed must meet requirements mandated by the State of Colorado. Labs and sample storage areas, office spaces and open workstations required secure access. The lab space was designed to accommodate incremental growth and future expansion. We capitalized on the ample natural daylight made possible because of the large windows and 10’ high ceilings. Along with lab planning and design, the project required coordination of lab equipment. Role: Architect of Record

 Union Station Historic Preservation  After more than a century of use, the historic Denver Union Station was transformed to serve the community as a multi-modal transportation hub connecting Denver's suburbs to downtown and Denver International Airport (DEN). Iron Horse was responsible for designing the removal of a non-contributing original structure and the restoration of the exterior of the building. This was made particularly difficult as this section of the facade had never been exposed to the exterior previously. Role: Associate Architect to AECOM, SOM

 RidgeGate Subarea Plan  Using momentum from the RTD Southeast Rail Extension, the area is slated for pedestrian-friendly shopping, office, and residential areas around the transit stations. Design standards have the intent of encouraging safe, walkable, pedestrian friendly streets with requirements for glazing and articulated facades. The plan provides for a lower-density residential area south of RidgeGate Parkway and neighboring the historic Schwieger Ranch. A pedestrian oriented mixed-use area transitions to the Light Rail park-n-ride to offer amenities to riders and the new community. Iron Horse focused on developing the framework and guidelines for the mixed-use, residential, and commercial area south of RidgeGate Parkway. The team also provided research, imagery, and modeling for the overall sub-area plan. Role: Associate Architect to MIG, Conventry
