Eco-Districts: the talk of the town

When it comes to preparing and catering for the streams of people flooding in to neighbourhoods, citites like Portland and San Fransisco are joincing forces with architects to develop Eco-Districts. One such green design is underway in Portland and aims to accommodate 657 apartments and 58 000 square metres of space for retailers. The idea is to build a close-knit Green neighbourhood, keeping everything at walking distance to minimise the usage of cars, thereby simultaneously building a closer and stronger community: in essence a Eco-District in its truest form.
