The [American Institute of Architects] has released its list of the [top ten green projects] for 2009, including [Synergy at Dockside Green][Synergy], a large mixed-use development in Victoria on a remediated brownfield site which achieved Canada's LEED Platinum rating. I highly recommend checking out the [AIA site][top ten green projects] with its detailed descriptions and gorgeous photos of the green features (including the shot of Dockside Green's 'water treatment system' shown here) for all ten of the projects.
