Learn how cities across the country are reclaiming marginal space for new uses. Parks, housing, offices and retail are rising on urban spaces that were once ignored or considered un-buildable. Projects such as Hudson Yards in New York City, Capitol Crossing in Washington, D.C. and The Underline in Miami, FL are combining innovative thinking about urban space and cutting edge building technology to create vibrant urban places to live, work and play in places previously ignored or considered unbuildable.

This program is part three of a special series: Found Ground

New building technology, innovative design, and dynamic urban real estate markets are making it possible to develop over and under existing transportation infrastructure and other marginal spaces—healing old scars and creating vibrant infill development. This special series takes you inside local and national urban planning stories about cities reclaiming marginal space for new uses.
