Cost of Green in NYC

In 2009, Urban Green Council released Cost of Green in NYC, a data-based study conducted in conjunction with Davis Langdon and with support from NYSERDA and Urban Green Council Members. 

This report examines recent construction projects in New York City in order to determine whether or not sustainability adds to project costs, and, if so, how much. 

The study found no significant difference in the cost per square foot between green and non-green buildings, based on analysis of luxury high-rise residential and commercial interior projects.
