Who's Number 1? We're Number 1!

Via our friends at Curbed LA, Los Angeles is the national leader in green development, ownership, and occupancy. While our friends around the country in cities like New York and Chicago have often enjoyed good press about their laudable green building efforts, we have more than twice as many green projects as New York and more than four times more than Chicago. This underscores that our early leadership (or LEEDership, as the case may be) is yielding results and helping lay a foundation in the public and private sector for buildings that will help us live more sustainably in Los Angeles. Considering that less than two years ago, we were seen as lagging but quickly catching up with our peer cities, this is great news for our city.
