Green Retirement Home
Mirabella, right, is a retirement high rise in the South Waterfront neighborhood in this Nov. 23, 2012 photo. It's essentially a retirement home for well-off former professionals: 220 apartments in a 30 story LEED certified building, with four restaurant options, wood shop, art studio, car-stacking parking, library, exercise gym and pool, street car line outside the door. The facility allows people to age in place: can literally go from penthouse to assisted living, to "memory care" to dead. (AP Photo/The Oregonian, Beth Nakamura)
