Great Green Places: Columbia Heights from National Building Museum on Vimeo.
to be sure. that is an adorable video and c.heights is totally awesome, but apparently the only thing that makes the DCUSA mall "one of the greenest shopping centers in the country" is that people don't have to leave the hood to go shopping. i also hadn't realized that buildings could be called "green" just because they're tall.
Yeah, it's a little bit of a stretch. You could argue they're greener than say the burbs because you can have mass transit and fewer services like sewer and stuff, but on the other hand the neighborhood wouldn't be the best spot for suburban style development anyway.
I didn't even bother to watch the video considering I know that C.Heights is only about 7% green space (literally). Also, can you imagine how much run off is coming off of 500,000 sq.ft of solid roof top. DC USA, you disappoint me.
