GreenCity is imagined as an ‘eco-district’ – designed to support companies, retailers, operators, and residents who are committed to climate action. Its planned synergies are designed for a generation who prefer better balanced and healthier lifestyles, providing ways in which all can contribute to a more sustainable future.
The planned urban + nature environment will foster opportunities for new economic development for greener industries and businesses who have, themselves, pledged to meet high sustainability goals in energy, water, and waste, as well as commitments to diverse social equity. The GreenCity master plan proposes building within a landscape-focused model which is itself the central theme.
The regulatory guidelines related to protecting the streambeds and wetlands that constitute the region’s Chesapeake Bay watershed are not just preserved here but embraced as assets. GreenCity will utilize these natural features as organizing elements for the plan and create a variety of active open public spaces and programs around the natural environment that is preserved.
