The website first debuted several years ago, directed by Erik Olsen (former head of Chicago's Green Permit Program). GreenBean tracked the windy city's quickly growing population of green buildings at all phases, from blueprints to finished projects. There's tons of pictures to look at, and even a cool map to help locate the spread of green buildings throughout the Chicago area. Now under the leadership of Wendy Berger Shapiro, the site will continue to present short articles profiling new green developments around the city. Their smart, connected team aims to become Chicago's best resource for local green building news, enabling a flow of ideas to inspire and inform others who are breaking ground on projects of their own.
