A developer's video tour of a smart, green neighborhood

A couple of years ago, I wrote about one of my favorite neighborhood developments: Seattle's High Point. A mixed-income HOPE VI project that replaced distressed public housing, High Point is affordable, lovely, and very green, especially in its advanced water management features.
This short video takes us on a tour of the neighborhood, led by the developer. I wish the video quality were kinder to the development's colors, but it is still good:
And, as a bonus, here's a very short one of an engaging dance performance at the High Point Diversity Festival, an annual event that predates the new development but is now held within it. Enjoy:
