Community spaces and neighbourhoods are a natural progression for green building. By their very nature, greener buildings and neighbourhoods promote health and foster a sense of community. They emphasize walkability, help reduce GHG emissions in often well-polluted urban areas, and they feature designs that provide more green space for everyone to enjoy.
In this section, you'll find case studies that can you can draw on for inspiration in future planning projects. It will include case studies about community centres that have used LEED certification to showcase sustainability features and educate the community about the benefits of green building, and LEED for Neighbourhood Development projects that are at the forefront of urban health and design.
