Russell Haythorn of The Denver Channel has a piece about Peña Station NEXT becoming the next big thing in Denver. Below is an excerpt with a link to the full article.
Denver’s NEXT big thing is exploding right now, in a place you might least expect.
It’s called Pena Station NEXT, and it’s the last stop along the A Line to Denver International Airport.
“This will be the hub for the region,” said Ferd Belz, president of L.C. Fulenwider, the master developer on the project.
Pena Station NEXT is a master-planned smart city — which is an urban area that uses various sensors to collect and use data to manage resources. Pena Station NEXT promises walkability, innovation and cutting-edge technology.
Smart cities often collect this data from residents and devices to do tasks like managing traffic, water supply networks, crime detection, schools, hospitals and more.
