High-Speed Rail: A Boon for Cities

Josh Leon has written an excellent analysis for Next American City on what the California High-Speed Rail line could mean for the Golden State's cities:
"It is also likely to spur dense downtown development in the major cities along the corridor. San Francisco is already planning a downtown transportation complex that will be taller than the iconic Transamerica pyramid, to be accompanied by massive mixed use redevelopment nearby. The lofty hope is that by centralizing all modes of public transportation, the new hub will fundamentally change the way we move in and out of the city."
