The first LEED car park- Monica

7 11 2008

This website gives a description of the first LEED parking garage. This parking garage creates it own energy from solar panels on the roof, uses storm water as grey water for landscaping and on site facilities.  It was built from recycled materials and there are many other features that make it environmentally friendly.

I think this is such a good idea because parking lots are known for being vast areas of wasted space and in the case of parking garages ugly cement buildings, this example proves that they can be aesthetically pleasing beautiful buildings. It is a step in the right the direction and one that should be used in the design of all new  and old parking garages.
