I'm not sure what this means for the Cleveland Green Building Coalition, but I dig the collaborative undertones in this project.

The internet, especially social network sites like realneo, may just be the glue that will connect the many seeminlgy self-interesed parties in Clevo.

A new nonprofit group wants to put a green imprint on Greater Cleveland's big, new developments.

Building Cleveland by Design has won a two-year, $440,000 grant from the Gund Foundation, with the goal of linking experts in areas such as art, park design and eco-friendly construction to new projects in the region.

ParkWorks Inc. and Cleveland Public Art will manage the group, which grew out of efforts by those groups and others to influence the design of Steelyard Commons, the shopping center under development off Ohio 176 (the Jennings Freeway), and Flats East Bank, the neighborhood development proposed downtown.
