The article is a final part of the «Linear city: Urban planning and social aspects of the Arturo Soria project» study. Features of the urban environment as understood by the authors of the project are considered. The causes of difficulties in the project implementation and the ways in which Arturo Soria tried to overcome them are analyzed. The chronology of failures that at the beginning of World War I had led to the bankruptcy of the Madrid Urbanization Company is described. The author presents the history of the Linear City in the period after the death of the founder, which had come to its end with the Linear City disappearance from the map of Madrid. Most of the materials are first presented in Russian.
