LEED BD+C: Multifamily Midrise | v3 - LEED 2008

Preferred locations in mid-rise buildings

MLLc3 | Possible 3 points

Intent

Encourage the building of LEED mid-rise buildings near or within existing communities, and to rehabilitate damaged sites where development is complicated by environmental contamination.

Requirements

Prerequisites

None.

Credits

3.1 Edge development (1 point). Select a lot such that at least 25% of the perimeter immediately borders previously developed land. In the case of a multi-building new development, each mid-rise building in the development is awarded this point if at least 25% of the development site immediately borders previously developed land.

OR

3.2 Infill (2 points). Select a lot such that at least 75% of the perimeter immediately borders previously developed land. In the case of a multi-building new development, each mid-rise building in the development is awarded these points if at least 75% of the development site immediately borders previously developed land.

Note: in order to be counted toward the above calculations, adjacent land must have been developed at least 5 years prior to project certification.

AND/OR

3.3 Brownfield redevelopment for mid-rise (1 point). Do one of the following:

  1. Develop on a site documented as contaminated (by means of an ASTM E1903-97 Phase II Environmental Site Assessment or a local voluntary cleanup program).
  2. Develop on a site defined as a brownfield by a local, state, or federal government agency.
