LEED-ND Projects Leave The Nest As New Pilot Program Takes Flight

A look at some of the first LEED-ND projects demonstrates the diverse models of sustainable development.

"The US Green Building Council launched its Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design for Neighborhood Development (LEED-ND) pilot program, created with CNU and the Natural Resources Defense Council, in July. Approximately 250 projects registered to be part of the program, according to Dara Zyckerman, assistant manager for LEED-ND with the USGBC."

"Due to the popularity of the pilot, the LEED-ND committee removed its original cap of 120 projects. The fee deadline was scheduled for the second week of July - after this issue went to press. A few projects submitted paperwork early and were named by USGBC. A list of all pilot LEED-ND projects is planned to be published in the September issue of New Urban News."
