According to the latest figures from the U.S. Green Building Council, Texas added 223 LEED-certified buildings and 32,878,732 sq. ft. to its stock in 2013. While that wasn’t enough green building for Texas to make the Top 10 states in LEED building per capita, the state’s square footage puts it at #3 nationwide for the year, trailing California and New York.
The Central Texas Chapter of USGBC added 57 LEED-certified commercial buildings and 54 homes last year, bringing its total to 297 commercial buildings and, with a rash of new LEED-certified neighborhoods from MHI/Coventry Homes, 343 residential units.
