30 July 2009 ? The new construction building on northeast corner of Clark and Kinzie may look like any other new construction project in the city, but look again. This green glass covered parking garage generates its own energy and is technologically advanced enough to have been awarded a U.S. patent. Wind turbines will be visible on the southwest corner, and the building will feature solar panels, a green roof, plug-in stations for electric cars, spaces for igo and Zipcar car-sharing services, parking for bikes, and showers for cyclists. The developers, Myron Warchauer and Albert Friedman, want the building to serve as a model for the next generation of parking structures.Email This Post To a Friend.
