The Moffat Market food court is located very near the legendary Moffat Railroad Tunnel; so close, in fact, that the tunnel entrance itself is visible through the windows. In 1928, the Moffat Tunnel gave Denver a long-needed western link through the Continental Divide, radically shortening transport and shipping routes. This food court’s theme in pay homage to the location’s historic railroad past. The adjoining Derailer Bar is a magnificent nod to Colorado’s railroading past, with it’s gleaming riveted metal panels, and rich traditional woodwork. 3DS designed and built everything, including the signage and branding.
The Winter Park Real Estate Discovery Center is located near the entrance to Colorado’s famous Moffat Tunnel, which, in 1928, gave Denver a long-needed western link through the Continental Divide. As is typical of 3DS projects, this space has an aspect of museum exhibit to it, as might be expected with any development built in such an historic location.
The centerpiece of the main room is an imposing, upended antique railroad boiler impeccably re-created by 3DS and ringed with illuminated vintage railroad photos. The entrance to the theatre is a antique boxcar door reproduction, correct in every detail. Throughout the visitor center, signage, photos, graphics, project models and other touches continue to connect the development to its location’s historic railroad past.
