Since 2003, residential quarters for more than 17,000 people have been built and more than 21,000 jobs have been created between Munich Central Sation and Pasing. The starting signal for this large-scale urban redevelopment was given in the mid-1990s when the container and marshalling yard was relocated to the outskirts of the city. For Munich, this was a unique opportunity to redevelop 178 hectares of industrial and commercial land in a central location. Today, office and commercial buildings form a new city line along the railway line. The quarters of the "Zentrale Bahnflächen" (central railway areas) stretch for eight kilometres from the city centre to the green corridor along the Würm river. They can be discovered via a network of footpaths and cycle paths on both sides of the rail tracks.
