Green Buildings of West Michigan
With over 120 LEED certified buildings in West Michigan, and that number continues to grow, we have the perfect opportunity to prove the benefits and showcase green building design as a region. Grand Rapids is a leader, ranked in the top 50 cities in the nation for the number of LEED certified buildings, and yet we find very few of those building owners sharing their story in an organized way to attract tours and visitors and as an economic development tool for our region. We are assisting those building owners to pull their case studies together, measuring the results of their green building choices, and to organize tours of these buildings to highlight the features. The diversity in the types of buildings that have been certified will provide a tour in each of the following market segments: office, manufacturing, small project, health care, education, homes, hospitality, and non-profit.
Buildings That Were Featured on the September 2010 Tour and in The Green Buildings of West Michigan Book are:
East Grand Rapids Community Center
