Video: Environmentally-Sensitive Shopping Area

This is a bit old now, but I just found this video on the new Rock/Creek store on the North Shore of downtown Chattanooga, TN. In it, the developer talks about how the building recycles rainwater for irrigation, the contractor used recycled timbers and other materials, and purchased materials produced locally where possible, reducing the overall carbon footprint for the project. Enjoy!

The reporter mistakenly credits the building with having attained LEED certification. In fact, the certification will not happen until the entire project has been completed. (Although we’re on track to receive the certification, and I’ll definitely post here when we do).
