West­min­ster Sta­tion is a Regional Trans­porta­tion Dis­trict (RTD) com­muter rail sta­tion on the B Line in West­min­ster, Col­orado, part of the Denver met­ro­pol­i­tan area. The recently opened B-line pro­vides an 11-minute train ride to down­town Denver’s Union Sta­tion.

West­min­ster Sta­tion is con­nected to the nearby Adams County res­i­den­tial neigh­bor­hood by a 165 foot-long pedes­trian bridge over the tracks, plat­form, and nearby Little Dry Creek. The Sta­tion Area was designed as an attrac­tive des­ti­na­tion and com­mu­nity center in South West­min­ster, the first market-rate, tran­sit-ori­ented, mixed-used project with ground-floor com­mer­cial space and up to five sto­ries of res­i­den­tial rental units above. In addi­tion, the under­pass of the sta­tion, con­nect­ing to the north plaza, is home to a 90-foot-long art instal­la­tion by Brian W. Brush called Grotto,” which con­sists of high-den­sity poly­eth­yl­ene plas­tic tubes lit by LED lights in an array of colors. It will pro­vide real-time visual alerts so res­i­dents, employ­ees, and vis­i­tors can know that a train will soon be arriv­ing or depart­ing with­out the need to check a tran­sit sched­ule.

This rede­vel­op­ment project revi­tal­ized the area —a true tran­sit first” neigh­bor­hood. Selux Ritorno Square was chosen to illu­mi­nate pri­mary walk­ing paths to enhance evening use and safety with its uni­form, vir­tu­ally shadow-less illu­mi­na­tion. The Ritorno directs light­ing down­ward, avoid­ing off-site glare to min­i­mize impact on the build­ing occu­pants across from the sta­tion. The modern look­ing Ritorno with its sleek reverse tapered pole is a per­fect com­ple­ment to its sur­round­ings.

  • Ritorno by Selux uses indirect lighting to produce uniform, shadow-free distributions while creating a comfortable ambiance. Uniquely-designed shades on Ritorno, help block light from off-site glare. Use Ritorno individually on a pole or wall mount, or combine light engine and shades into unique configurations. The Ritorno LED retrofit kit can replace less energy-efficient modules without the need for complete new fixtures.
