Is concrete green?

October 13th, 2021 — It’s curious that the two towers in the background of this picture at 1684 and 1668 Alberni Street are being considered for demolition and redevelopment — I assume because they are at the end of their life — while the two houses in the foreground aren’t. What is the life of a concrete tower; these two can’t be fifty years old? Does a city trying to be the greenest in the world consider demolishing buildings like these “green”?
