I apologize for the interruption, but if you haven’t yet checked out the Green Real Estate Journal , I’d like to encourage you to do so. Again, the idea behind GRELJ is that it will allow us to delve into some of the thornier legal issues associated with green building in much greater detail than here at gbNYC, where our focus will continue to be projects, deals, and other news items of interest to the New York City green building community. Although we won’t be posting with the same degree of frequency at GRELJ, much of the utility of the site will come from the discussion in the comments, where we’ve already seen some really terrific discourse.
Nevertheless, it’s been a little over a month since GRELJ launched and already we’ve had some great content, ranging from a dissection of the green building components of the October bailout and the legal aspects of green real estate finance to the first post in a series about green leasing and a critique of the recent CoStar article reviewing exaggerated owner claims of LEED certification. Again, check out links to a few of our most recent posts below, and please take a moment to subscribe to the GRELJ RSS or email feed if you haven’t already done so. Finally, if you’d be interested in contributing to GRELJ (or here at gbNYC), please feel free to contact me.
