The 606 has the role of being a well known, innovative project for Chicago’s sustainable goals. With the 606 in place, the people of Chicago can see urban innovation in action, all while enjoying the benefits that come with it. Chicago has set its sights on becoming a more sustainable city and the 606 is a great start. By encouraging environmentally and health conscious commuting strategies, Chicago is becoming a model for how to encourage sustainable living.
In addition to encouraging sustainable living, the 606 also can serve as an inspiration for those hoping to redesign Chicago into a sustainable city. With many areas of Chicago being continually underdeveloped, there is plenty of opportunity for architects, urban planners, engineers, etc. to use these areas to design/plan urban innovations. Basically, the 606 can become the tip of the iceberg in the future of Chicago’s sustainable & innovative design.
