Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Green building"--the trend toward more environmentally responsible construction--has become a popular movement among architects, but it is less well understood by the developers and owners who control funding. This book is the first to demonstrate the advantages of green development, using case studies of developers and owners who built environmentally responsible projects that have delivered superior financial rewards.

From the Back Cover

"Green Development is good for business. Tenants, owners, purchasers, and brokers are all becoming more sophisticated and are realizing the financial and social benefits of green product." --Gerald Hines, Chairman of Hines.

Environmentally responsible real estate development makes dollars and sense. Green Development describes an exciting new field in which environmental considerations are viewed as opportunities to create fundamentally better buildings and communities--more comfortable, more efficient, more appealing, and ultimately more profitable.

If you're a developer, architect, planner, contractor, lender, or city official, this book speaks your language. Every stage of the development process is examined in detail: market research, site planning, design, approvals, financing, construction, marketing, and occupancy. Also included are lists of project statistics and contacts, books and other information sources, and development strategies.

Based on 80 case studies drawn from Rocky Mountain Institute's extensive worldwide research and consulting work, Green Development distills proven procedures and practical lessons that work in the real world.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

42 of 45 people found the following review helpful By Christian Overbey (cdosem@halcyon.com) on December 1, 1998
Format: Hardcover
This book throughly presents sustainable real estate development. It answers the basic questions of how, what, when, why and who with text and photos illustrating numerous case studies.
It is written for a wide and concerned audience, composed of real estate professionals, financiers and designers. This book is not technical. It is a conceptual book and guides the reader toward sustainable solutions.
This subject is very large and this book is necessarily a summary, which includes recent projects.
This book does not "preach to the choir". It addresses difficult obstacles to the sustainable development paradigm and provides workable solutions.

Format: Hardcover
An excellent overview of the evolving movement towards green development. The book is somewhat dated and lacks in-depth coverage in some areas. Regardless effectively gets you into the space.
