If you're still running up against owners who question the validity of green building and sustainable design, particularly those with spaces to renovate in the Big Apple, soon there could be no question as to the value of going green.

It's a small sample size, to be sure, but it's a start and could provide the evidence many need to be convinced green building is here to stay.
What do you think about this? What effect do you expect it to have on the green building initiative?
