RailRoad Square is known for it's artistic appeal but now it's adding something brand new to Tallahassee.

We're talking about a new building made from recycled steel shipping containers.

The architect says, since the containers are being recycled this makes the building Tallahassee's first total GREEN building and first of it's kind in the Southeast.

The building will be five floors and used for shops, restaurants, cafes, art studios, office's and residential living.

Craig Huffman, the architect says, "This project is going to be a state of the art project. It's going to be a new standard in terms of green architecture, in terms of mixed use. It's really going to be an exciting place in Tallahassee."

RailRoad square's owner says, he is planning on breaking ground for this project in about 3 months.

    The National Popular Vote bill would guarantee the Presidency to the candidate who receives the most popular votes in all 50 states (and DC). Every vote, everywhere would be politically relevant and equal in presidential elections. Elections wouldn't be about winning states. Every vote, everywhere would be counted for and directly assist the candidate for whom it was cast. Candidates would need to care about voters across the nation. The bill would take effect only when enacted, in identical form, by states possessing a majority of the electoral votes--enough electoral votes to elect a President (270 of 538). When the bill comes into effect, all the electoral votes from those states would be awarded to the presidential candidate who receives the most popular votes in all 50 states (and DC).

    To anonymous @ 8:57...don't you know it is all about me and only me? Who cares about anyone else, animals or the environment? I am first and always will be. Well that is the way it seems by reading posts on this web site.

    Some people that post on here are complete morons who think about themselves first and nobody else second. Real people care about others, and think about our Mother Earth first, everybody else second, and themselves a distant 3rd. Now, hopefully no old trees will be cut down for this building... I would be very disappointed if any are. But otherwise, this sounds like a GREAT idea, and will not cost the taxpayers anythings, as it sounds like a private owner is doing this. By the way, Al Gore did not try to steal the Presidency at all. In fact, he received more popular votes than Bush. THAT is a fact. He just didn't get the necessary electoral votes to win the election. Its one reason why our election system is flawed. It should be who gets the most votes, period. Not who gets more votes based on different areas of the country. Also, if one candidate get 51% of the votes from a state, said candidate should get 51% of their electoral votes, NOT 100%!

    I'll ask again - how many big, beautiful trees will be cut down for this so-called green project? The tress that are sitting where this will go are all about 100 years old and provide habitat to owls and hawks as well as smaller critters.

    What a joke. You global warming hoax people think you puny humans can control the climate. Al, the fraud, who tried to steal the presidency, is a total hypocrite.
