Bloomingdale Trail Project

New York has the High Line project, San Fran has the Bay Line, now Chicago is making their mark with the Bloomingdale Trail. The project is designed to transform railways into public parks along a 3-mile section of elevated rail. For the Chicago project, the design features include a greenhouse, hydrogen generation facility that offers organic, local food for the community and even provides a fuel source for the Chicago schools. A Sustaino idea for the locals! The Bloomingdale Trail was abandoned in 1980's and co-designed by Gesler and 4240 Architecture. Where is Cleveland's?
