You’ve heard of efficient LEED-rated green buildings. Well, get to know super-efficient green neighborhoods, where green buildings combine with walkability, transit and convenient mixed uses that makes possible a sustainable way of life previously unimaginable.

And Milwaukee has one of the green neighborhoods rated as most green — the Brewery neighborhood on the streets and blocks that formerly housed the Pabst Brewery. CNU Wisconsin toured the Brewery with project developers and Doug Farr, the nationally renowned green architect and planner (CNU’s national board chair at the time) who helped CNU and partners create the LEED for Neighborhoods system. Learn about CNU’s role in the birth of LEED-ND.
