Real Estate Connection: Living Buildings & the Economics of Change

Living Buildings harness their own energy and water, contributing to a restorative built environment. What are the market drivers for these buildings, and for deep green retrofits of existing commercial buildings?

We explore this question through the lens of The Economics of Change, a national research initiative to create more comprehensive investment models for the economic, social, and environmental benefits of real estate, giving insight into future risks and liabilities for conventional buildings and upside for deep green buildings.

Learn more about this groundbreaking approach to building design and construction and keep up-to-date on the latest industry tax news as discussed at our Real Estate Connection series on December 5, 2013.
