This program is part 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.
