Greenspaces

Greenspaces is developing eco-friendly next-generation homes that could allow residents to never pay an electric bill.  Through solar panels, the homes could produce more energy than the homeowners consume.  The first will be built at 631 Hamilton Avenue on Chattanooga's North Shore.

The Resource Rain Low Impact Development (LID) Design Challenge asked teams of engineers, architects and designers to come up with innovative, greener ways to manage stormwater runoff.  Teams created concepts for four sites around Chattanooga: Broad Street, Cherokee Boulevard, Bonny Oaks and Northgate Mall.  The teams who created the top design for each location were awarded $10,000 each.
