As the real estate meltdown continues to deepen, some places may hold their value better than others. Perhaps those communities that were designed to be green will be among the best- they cost less to operate, and are designed more densely to make it easy to get around without a car.
The Natural Homes Jan/Feb edition picks their ten best. Two are built on old airport sites (in Denver, six million tons of runway concrete were reused to make bike paths) , some are urban infills like Greenbridge, (TreeHugger here) while some look like very pretty suburbs that we might have some questions about.
Pringle Creek in Salem, Oregon, has "130 carbon-neutral/net-zero-energy residences—including single- and multi-family houses, cottages, row houses and apartments—with LEED-certified retail, work spaces, parks and community buildings."
