A Closer Look at Dockside Green

Dockside Green, a development in Victoria, B.C., is a breathtaking model of urban regeneration, brownfield reuse, green design, and community building, says Ken Pirie.

Pirie reviews this Canadian example of sustainable building and development:

"Dockside Green is a project that presents a breathtaking model of urban regeneration, brownfield reuse, green design, and community building. The 15-acre development includes three neighborhoods to be built out over ten years, housing a planned 2,500 residents, and featuring neighborhood-level commercial uses and open space. The LEED-certified development features its own biomass energy plant, membrane bioreactor package wastewater treatment plant, and other state-of-the-art resource efficiency measures."
