Alameda station is on the Central Light Rail Corridor, which opened in 1994 and was Denver's first Light Rail Line. The station is situated west of Broadway at Alameda Ave. Alameda is an urban center station allowing residential, commercial, and retail uses with a small park-n-ride facility. It is designed to serve the immediate neighborhoods of Baker, West Washington Park, Athmar Park, and Valverde. These surrounding neighborhoods offer charming quality housing stock, neighborhood parks, schools, and small business districts. The addition of the station adds significant value to these areas. There is tremendous opportunity for new development and the area is seeing increased interest in making Alameda Station a robust transit oriented development. To guide this redevelopment a Station Area Plan was created.
