CHICAGO (CBS) — Mayor Rahm Emanuel has announced the Chicago winner of a global contest to make the city greener.

Renderings of “Garfield Green” show how the proposal will revitalize more than an acre of vacant land in East Garfield Park, creating sustainable mixed-income housing, new retail space and a public plaza.
