Undercover Urbanist

What a crock. So many cities in NC, particularly Asheville and Chapel Hill, are kicking the stuffing out of Greensboro on being green. The relentless expansion of 840 and an economic development strategy based on the FedEx hub dwarf any good one hotel built by one developer could do.

The Proximity itself is tremendously green internally, but turns its back on the street and is really a pedestrian-hostile suburban building. The builder (I heard him speak at the NC Energy Forum two weeks ago) is really a tremendous individual, but that's to his credit, not the city's.

The complete ignorance of how much the nearly complete auto dependence of life in Greensboro contributes to being a non-green city is unquestioned and undiscussed.
