Dozens of attendees from the GreenBuild Conference & Expo hopped on a tour bus November 18th to see first-hand the sustainable projects Philadelphia has been working on.  The bus tour, formally titled "Building Connections, Building Community: Campus Living and Supportive Housing" traveled to Temple University's campus and stopped at Paseo Verde - a LEED ND Platinum housing development and Morgan Residence Hall - new student dormitories.  Temple Gratz II was another stop on the tour (also an MBC project) and lastly, JBJ Soul Homes.
