ABOUT GREEN CITY
One of the many humbling lessons we have learned from 2020 is that there is a need for more innovative thinking and for better tools to solve the challenges we face – in public health, in creating and maintaining an equitable economy, and in meeting, head-on, the escalating threat of climate change. Creating sustainable and reliable systems in these areas is not just good stewardship, it’s good business as well. For far too long, development and planning have focused narrowly on real estate and infrastructure, rather than on the more comprehensive goals we should be setting as communities. These include sustainability and resiliency, the health and well-being of our built environment, and inclusiveness in our economy.
The initiative is a next-generation development that engages the most innovative architects, engineers, and planners. It leverages underdeveloped real estate assets toward these goals.
- It is challenging, but also achievable working together.
- It is aspirational, but not experimental.
- It is designed to bring together existing best practices in sustainability science with climate commitments already embraced by businesses around the world.
- And it provides an alternative for residents who desire to live and work in better planned, and more diverse, communities.
The project is being developed by Capital City Partners LLC, a joint venture between Concord Eastridge Inc and Future Cities LLC along with the following partners.
