EcoDistricts — Performance Based Urban Design
July 10, 2015
12 noon–1:30 p.m. CT
An ecodistrict strategy is an emerging planning process that incorporates environmental performance metrics to guide neighborhood growth with a social, environmental and economic priority.
This panel session will present, in detail, two ecodistrict efforts: the Brewery Blocks in Portland, Oregon — a private sector driven redevelopment of a historic brewery district — and the SW Ecodistrict in Washington, D.C. — a federal agency driven redevelopment of a single use office district into a sustainable, mixed-use neighborhood.
