What a great project. If I understand it correctly, the rail line actually runs through existing buildings, right? Can you imagine living in a building, getting in the elevator, and going not to the bottom floor, but to the 2nd or 3rd and being able to go outside and jog?

Indianapolis has the Monon. It's an old rail line that was converted into a hike/bike path. It's always packed, property values along the Monon have increased, and developers are clamoring to build near it.

The old rail line in Mineral Wells, TX was converted into a hike/bike trail and has become pretty popular.

There's an abandoned line in Houston that runs from downtown into the Heights...I think this line would be an excellent conversion opportunity.
