"green" tower

Talk about green washing...this "house" takes the cake, the ice cream and the presents. Here are just a few interesting facts:

1. single family residence
2. 570 ft. tall
3. 6 floors of parking
4. 1 helipad
5. 9 elevators
6. $1800/ft
7. 35,000 s.f.
8. 2 billion construction cost
9. The architect, Perkins + Will, is so 'proud' of their green washed masterpiece that they won't even put the project on their website.

Sustainability is most commonly defined as, "The ability to meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs." Just a little food for thought...
