Olympic Village Named World's Greenest Neighborhood
The site of this year’s Winter Olympics, Southeast False Creek, in Vancouver, Canada, received the Platinum for World’s Greenest Neighborhood from the U.S. Green Building Council.
The site was chosen based on some of the following criteria: close proximity to the downtown core, mixed residential and commercial use, affordable housing and construction of energy efficient buildings.
A former industrial site, the village housed 2,600 athletes and coaches during the games and will provide housing for up to 16,00 people upon completion. Read more.
