Boston Goes Green

Recommended Posts

The city will likely become the first major city to require all private development greater than 50k sq. ft. to have environmentally friendly design. Though the city will not require developers to seek LEED certification, the building will have to perform on par with basic LEED certified buildings.

City officials said they will ask the Boston Redevelopment Authority tomorrow to incorporate the green building standards into municipal zoning laws, following the recommendations of a task force appointed by Mayor Thomas M. Menino in 2003. The standards are expected to be formally adopted by the Boston Zoning Commission in January after a public comment period.
