Sustainable building opens officially

The Maison du développement durable (aka Centre for Sustainable Development), on Ste-Catherine at Clark, had its official opening Thursday. Certified LEED Platinum, this may well be the greenest building in town, and various environmental and community groups are gathered under its green roof.

It doesn’t have any parking lot.

Later: The building may be all kinds of admirable but the project’s website is a massive chunk of expensive Flash, overly cute and difficult to assimilate. I do wish they wouldn’t.
