dont ever see anyone using a "pedestrian land" on the bridge. wishful thinking. biking maybe.
again second concern is location. so every oddball development of scale can apply to get one-offs on the streetcar line? where does that stop and what master plan was altered to make the reach. My vote would have been stick to the plan at hand vs distractions. Denver too got jiggy with early success and now has two spurs of little use. ouch.
there isn't a streetcar-specific master plan yet. the 2014 expansion study looked at eight corridors and advanced three of them (and one of them -- main street -- will be built
with the new TDD). but, yeah, if anyone else brought cash to the table for an extension it would at least be studied. and why not?
operationally, riverfront would only become a spur if you extend north of the river on the heart of america bridge. as of today, it would simply be the northern terminus of a 7-mile (!) streetcar line.
denver's biggest problem is they figured out TOD too late (and, of course, the regionalism that said "take light rail to golden!"). some of those suburban stations are horrible designs that prioritize park-and-ride over development.
