Developers Eye High-Density Opportunities in California's High Speed Rail Hubs

Southern California developers are gearing up to pounce on the areas surrounding proposed high speed rail hubs that will make up California's statewide high speed rail line.

24-hour retail and residential destinations are being planned in San Diego, Los Angeles and Sacramento, among other hubs along the planned system.

"Developers who are planning their strategies around the project are looking to transform the hubs into all-inclusive stations complete with retail, entertainment and business opportunities. Construction most likely would start at the major stations in Los Angeles and Sacramento."
