There are an increasing number of examples of European cities with neighbourhoods that have been recovered through projects that develop their stations for the high-speed railway. Some stations are on the outskirts of the city and create new urban poles, whereas many others redevelop the old railway spaces for the new system. The European cases of central stations include diverse situations that range from the redevelopment of nineteenth century stations to those that provide an axis for growth of a new zone of the city with new neighbourhoods. Los Angeles can now use this new eco-station and recover for mixed use and transit oriented development. A new linear park is created also on the roof of the freeway 101 to connect both sides of the city.
