This urban development strategy, as a crucial municipal construction based on public participation, was initiated by people advocating the preservation of the old railway afterwards implemented by municipality, thus presenting a new paragon of landscape urbanism. The railway area of Taichung Overpass surrounded by the separate pollical, industrial, cultural and educational assets therefore evolves into the area with multiple functions, landscapes and facilities, where the appearances imply railways, and the furniture on the streets show the local history.
