  • The Sierra Club named Milwaukee’s HOPE VI development, Highland Park, as one of the nation’s best new projects.  It features one of the nation’s largest green roofs, and one of the first green roofs to grace a public housing development.  The Housing Authority estimates that the room will lower cooling and heating costs by 10-12%.  The mid-rise building also incorporated recycled materials from the high rise projects it replaced.
