Leonardo DiCaprio Visits the 1st Green Affordable Housing Project in the U.S.'

Leonardo DiCaprio accompanied architect Lawrence Scarpa to report on the project and to discuss the rationale behind this type of low-income housing development.

The Colorado Court complex, as it is called, is located in Santa Monica, CA where the architect is a principal of the firm Brooks + Scarpa.

Alissa Walker, of Good Magazine, writes "the 44-unit building includes 200 solar panels to help offset energy costs, which is exceptionally important, because low-income families spend a great deal of their money on utilities."
