Placemaking

The Colorado Hyperloop will help by building community, expand collaboration, and lessen the time it take to go places.

What if going from Colorado Springs to Greeley only took 24 minutes. Or Fort Collins to Denver a mere 18 minutes. A commute from Pueblo to Denver would only take 21 minutes.

For each hyperloop terminal, the area around the terminal will become new innovative placemaking hubs. The hyperloop will forever shape the way we think of where we live, work and play.

The hyperloop will help make Placemaking flourish.

Read more about the theory of Placemaking here.

The practice of placemaking concerns the deliberate shaping of an environment to facilitate social interaction, create high-quality public space, and improve a community’s quality of life. The idea of making great, social, human-scale places is not new, and in the long history of human settlement public places have reflected the needs and cultures of community. But by the end of the 19th century, this link between public places and people had fractured. The industrial age’s focus on machine efficiency, and 20th century suburbanization and auto-centric planning zoned out diversity and a mix of walkable uses in communities. Land use decisions by “experts” and federal programs that came with fiscal incentives for highway construction, urban renewal, and suburban home ownership drove state and municipal policy making. The resulting “top-down” shaping of our built environment stripped familiar and well-worn public places from our landscape and took the place of local governance by the people.

PopSci also alludes to the international changes hyperloops could make:

A Hyperloop could bridge borders, making San Antonio and Mexico City suburbs of each other, with a journey of 75 minutes. Farther north, New York and Montreal would be only 35 minutes apart.
