Getting to know LEED: Neighborhood Development

Published on Posted in LEED

Is your local grocery store within walking distance…and is there a sidewalk for you to trek there safely? Does your neighborhood boast high-performing green buildings, parks and green space? Do bikes, pedestrians and vehicles play nicely together on the road? LEED for Neighborhood Development (LEED ND) was engineered to inspire and help create better, more sustainable, well-connected neighborhoods. It looks beyond the scale of buildings to consider entire communities. Why? Because sprawl is a scary thing. Here’s the antidote.

Who it’s for

  • Plan: certification is available to your neighborhood-scale project if it’s currently in any phase of planning and design and up to 75% constructed. We designed this offering to help you or your developers market and fund your project among prospective tenants, financiers, public officials, etc. by affirming your intended sustainability strategies.
  • Project certification: designed for neighborhood-scale projects that are near completion, or were completed within the last three years. 

Learn more about the certification process, and get started on your project today. Find additional resources, and purchase your copy of the LEED Reference Guide for Neighborhood Development.
