Philadelphia’s Reading Viaduct Project

Post-industrial Philadelphia wants to do away with their “under-parked” image starting with the “Philadelphia Rail Park; a three-mile-long abandoned railway turned into an elevated park. Snaking through some of the city’s most populated neighborhoods, the proposed green spine would run through the backyards of fifty city blocks and stitch together multiple cultural and artistic landmarks. Organizers behind the Philadelphia’s Reading Viaduct project say that the park will differ from its NYC predecessor by cultivating a less polished, and more industrial feel.

Sydney’s The Goods Line

Sydney recently started construction on their version of the High Line: a public greenway called The Goods Line to be completed by the end of 2015. Located in the inner-city suburb Ultimo, the former disused rail corridor will be transformed into a 500-meter-long urban pedestrian and cycle network. Building on the spirit of the High Line, the Goods Line will offer pop-up performance and restaurant spaces, art installations, and will even be active as a nighttime destination.
