One of the greenest housing projects ever built in Canada is Net Zero in Vancouver’s Olympic Village
According to an article written by Bruce Constantineau and published in the Vancouver Sun newspaper, the Net Zero building on parcel nine in Vancouver’s Olympic Village is one of the greenest housing projects ever built in Canada. The 64-unit Southeast False Creek project will become a seniors’ housing complex after the 2010 Olympic Games.
It’s called Net Zero because it’s designed to produce as much energy as it consumes. While most buildings in the Olympic Village will target a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) gold standard, the Net Zero project is designed to meet LEED’s top platinum rating.
