Potential LEED-ND Candidates in Colorado

by EVstudio AEP on December 26, 2010

In a partnership with the Colorado chapters of the United States Green Building Council (USGBC) and the Congress for the New Urbanism (CNU), I recently identified developed neighborhoods that may qualify for LEED-Neighborhood Development (LEED-ND).  LEED is an acronym for Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design with multiple rating systems including the most popular New Construction (or LEED-NC).

Stapleton, Denver

The following are Colorado developments that are pilot projects for LEED-ND:

I have assembled several other new urban neighborhoods in the State of Colorado, which can also be found in CNU Colorado published book Colorado Urbanizing, that I feel have the potential to meet the requirements of LEED-ND.  Please send comments, etc. if you feel that I have missed a neighborhood that would qualify as this is meant to be a working list.
