Strata Tower London

According to their web site:

Strata SE1 is the first development in the world to integrate wind turbines into the fabric of a building. This was a conscious decision by Brookfield Europe to push the boundaries and investigate whether wind turbines are a reasonable environmental investment in an urban environment.

To put this figure into context, it is enough energy to meet the total annual demand from 30 two bedroom apartments (based on current 2006 Building Regulations) or 20 two bedroom apartments (based on 2001 Building Regulations); approximately 8% of Strata SE1’s estimated total energy consumption.

Affordable housing is included in the scheme of things as well as provisions for recycling rain water.
