Historic Preservation in Charleston, Dubuque and Grand Rapids
By Harry Bergmann, Erin McCluskey, and Summer Newman
For a course on urban sustainability at The George Washington University, we studied how historic preservation in Charleston, Dubuque and Grand Rapids makes these cities more sustainable as well as helps develop new areas for residents to populate. We think it is more efficient to refurbish a historic building than to build a new LEED certified one. Do you agree?
