Sustainable Suburbs in Washington State

With solar panels, rainwater collection, and cutting-edge insulations, Washington State’s Issaquah Highlands is a model for green development in the suburbs. A new development in the community, zHome, is the first carbon neutral, multi-family project in the United States.

Yay! Finally! Since this is multi-family, it will build community in addition to the green aspect.

A step in the right direction. It still looks too concrete and sterile for my tastes.
