You might have seen the proposals for Hammarby-Sjostad, a waterfront district in the center of Stockholm, when the development won the World Clean Energy awards back in 2007.  The district has followed a comprehensive sustainability plan as it redeveloped from a former industrial site into a residential area. This means that everything from the construction materials (and their transport) to the energy, water, transportation, and waste systems for residents was designed with environmental considerations in mind.

The CityFix is currently hosting a video interview with some of the residents and planners who live and work on the site now that it’s up and running.  Check it out for a blast of good news.
