It’s Easy Being Green: Get to Know This Year’s Olympic Village

An interactive map explores Southeast False Creek, the site of the Olympic Village for this year's games and a hub for sustainable development.

The new neighborhood of Southeast False Creek is a former industrial brownfield site in Vancouver, British Columbia that will be the site of the Olympic Village for the 2010 Winter Games. It also aims to be a model of sustainable development in North America with LEED-Gold buildings, easy transit access to ensure proximity to local jobs, and holistic energy use reduction, as well as ecological restoration of the shoreline and contaminated lands.
