Not only is this project an excellent example of sustainable building design, but the mission that it serves, with the <a href="http://www.cnt.org">Center for Neighborhood Technology</a>, is also a very green- oriented endeavor.<br /><br />&quot;Since 1978, the Center for Neighborhood Technology (CNT) has worked to show urban communities locally and all across the country how to develop more sustainably. With smarts, creativity and innovation, and before the term sustainable development was even widely used, CNT has been demonstrating its unique brand of sustainable development: development that is good for the economy and the environment; makes better use of existing resources and community assets; and improves the health of natural systems and the wealth of people—today and in the future.&quot;</p>
