Before Chicago's Mayor Richard M. Daley signs off from 21 years in office, he will announce the winners of the city-wide Greenworks Awards. This annual competition honors three categories of green excellence: sustainable business, innovation in the built environment, and community leadership. This week, finalists faced off in a public presentation, telling the audience why their project or business was most deserving of the award. The eight contenders for the most innovative built environment include new buildings, energy efficiency upgrades and retrofits, smart growth developments (like brownfield redevelopment), achievements in alternative and native landscaping, as well as city infrastructure improvements. See these finalists after the jump, and comment to let us know who you think the winner should be!
