Emeryville, California, is a small enclave wedged between Oakland and Berkeley best known for its giant IKEA and even more giant freeway interchange. It’s also one of the more successful and impressive brownfield redevelopments around, with hundreds of forlorn acres having been turned into new offices, loft and retail – a lot of which is pretty strip mall-ish, but still an improvement. At any rate, Emeryville city hall is popping up an impressive solar array that will provide about 30% of its power. Not bad! If you’re in the neighborhood, there’s a dedication on Wednesday the 11th – Emeryville City Hall.
