Episode Summary

The Greening of Southie
As part of THE GREEN, Sundance Channel presents a series of documentary films focusing on timely and pressing environmental issues of the day. Ian Cheney tells the unlikely story of Boston's first residential "green" building and how it united a tight-knit community. The Macallen Building seemed an odd addition to South Boston - "Southie" - a traditionally working-class neighborhood. Yet The Macallen not only won high marks for its sustainable design ideas and offered its diverse residents luxury features, its creation also spurred workers and environmentalists to think about the city of the future.moreless
