Posted on Friday, December 20, 2013

On November 5, the Atlanta Chapter of ARCS Foundation held a Fall Educational Event at Riverview Landing on the Chattahoochee River. Walter Brown, Senior Vice President for Development and Environmental Affairs for Jameston Properties, presented a slide show of the Ponce City Market (formerly City Hall East) renovation in which 90% of its demolition materials were recycled. Attendees also learned about the LEEDs building standards and "report card,” waste reduction and environmental sustainability.  Finally, Mr. Brown explained about the post-industrial brownfield clean-up process used at Atlantic Station.  After the presentation, participants toured Riverview Landing which is being transformed from an industrial site to a beautiful pedestrian friendly town with up to 2.3 million square feet of mixed-use entitlement including boating and fishing access docks, mountain bike trails, organic farms, dog parks, storm-water ponds, and preserved wetlands.
