Main traits for success have been identified and some of them are as follows: centralization of the new site within the local environment, an impact on the attractiveness of outskirts, availability of various sport zones, park areas, playgrounds, dressing rooms, food zone, touristic attractiveness, interactive cooperation. The railroad depot was used due to the analysis of modern tendencies of revitalization and construction of industrial zones, abandoned territories of railway stations, depots, and near-ground territory. Such areas always create negative social conditions. The revitalization of these areas creates new community facilities that might play a role in improving the social conditions of the city in general.

The most relevant areas were found using Google Maps tools and a section of the railroad depot of Copenhagen Central Railway Station (Denmark) was selected among them. The area of the railroad depot is actually used in a modern way, gradually creating a new residential infrastructure. The area with currently not used rail tracks has been selected for the project. The areas defined for residential development, shopping centre, railway station, office buildings are situated nearby.

 

 

The space for the sports recreation playground occupies an area of 4 500 m2, 100Х45 m. The parking zone designed for 50 parking lots was selected for this area. The territory has a flat surface and includes nine parallel tracks. Taking into account railway tracks, a conceptual solution combining existing resources with established tasks has been chosen. The complex is based on the use of 21 old railway freight cars of various types. Each car has a unique function. The cars are distributed onto seven tracks and grouped from one to five at each track. The cars are fixed and rebuilt. A complex of engineering systems for operation under new functional purposes is being created. Hazardous areas are being fenced. The elements are being equipped with stairs, ramps, and transitions.

 

 

An interesting addition was the creation of a through a tunnel under one of the trains, which gives everyone an opportunity to wonder how rail cars look like below. It is foreseen to install on each car informational stands describing both the previous functional purpose and the modern one. The construction of this complex along with the existing railway system may also be of interest to tourists.
