      • Kentucky Green Building Leadership Summit - Excerpt of Rick Fedrizzi Speech

        from Kentucky USGBC / Added

        (Louisville, KY – June 25, 2014) -- Before a crowd of more than 250 leaders in the community’s sustainability efforts, the Kentucky U.S. Green Building Council hosted its first Kentucky Green Building Leadership Summit, “Market Transformation for our Built Environment,” today at the University of Louisville Clinical and Translational Research Building, a LEED® Certified Gold Building. The Summit, which was organized to support the KY USGBC mission to educate individuals and promote the design, construction and operation of buildings that are environmentally responsible places to live, work and learn. Rick Fedrizzi, President, CEO and Founding Chair of the U.S. Green Building Council, spoke to the incredible success of the global green building movement. Fedrizzi congratulated Kentucky on its more than 400 LEED certified buildings, more than a quarter of which are located in Louisville, and pointed out that the amount of square footage positively affected by this designation represents the total square footage of 14 Empire State Buildings standing on top of each other. “LEED certification is instrumental in our work,” he said. “LEED has now resulted in more than $5 billion in deferred maintenance in our nation’s school systems alone.” LEED®, the premier global green building certification program that certifies 1.7 million square feet of building space per day, anchors the USGBC’s work. Nearly 200,000 LEED professionals have been accredited to date, with more than 1000 in Kentucky. Kentucky hosts more than 400 LEED buildings throughout the state. “This is an exciting day for our city as we all come together to take “Louisville Forward,” said Mayor Greg Fischer, referring to his new sustainability initiative designed to create stronger ties between economic development and property development so that one supports the other toward a higher quality of life. In addition, Fedrizzi led a panel discussion comprised of leaders in transforming the built environment through strategic policies and widespread practices, including Roger McClendon, Chief Sustainability Officer, YUM! Brands, Carey Smith, CEO, Big Ass Solutions and Dr. Shirley Willihnganz, Provost, University of Louisville. “Our students are leading the charge for us,” said Willihnganz. “We are creating composting, recycling, and on-campus biking programs at the behest of our students and these programs are creating strong social justice and economic benefits for us.”

              • Building Analysis - 650 King West

                02:24

                from WareInToronto / Added

                650 King Street West and 95 Bathurst Street were developed by Freed Developments and completed in 2012. In typical FREED developments fashion, this building boasts minimalist design and great standard finishes. Stainless steel appliances, stone counters, pre-engineered wood floors and floor-to-ceiling windows adorn most suites in the building (in some form). The developer was trying to achieve LEED status when they built this building and installed a green roof, energy-efficient appliances and a greywater irrigation system. The building lacks major amenities but has a zen garden and on-site security/concierge. What was most notable in recent months was the reduction in maintenance fees by 30% in October of 2013. This was a massive reduction and can be largely attributed to the active involvement of the condominium corporation in overseeing the upkeep of the building. The developer may have increased the maintenance fees beyond what would be deemed necessary during the final building stages but it did create a healthy initial reserve fund and allowed the condo corporation board and property management company to reduce the fees for owners in the building and in turn, increase the value of lofts in this building. Pricing in the past quarter has fluctuated from $504 per square foot to $650 per square foot. This massive variance has to do with the exposure and inclusion (or exclusion) of parking and locker in the sale price of units. Note that the coveted exposure at 650 King would be east facing provided you are over the 6th floor (great city views). South facing suites are looking at the new Thompson Residences building but still offers interesting views of brick and beam buildings on King. West exposure in the 650 King portion of the building can be decent, provided you're above the 4-5 floor and clearing the Blowfish building (and Rogers Building). Average pricing in the building is currently sitting at $589 per square foot (as of June 2014).

                      01:47:48

                      from Center for Architecture / Added

                      Organized by the Consortium for Sustainable Urbanization (CSU) in cooperation with UN-Habitat New York Office and co-sponsored by the American Institute of Architects, New York Chapter, this program is related to the AIANY 2014 Presidential theme “Civic Sprit: Civic Vision.” SMART CITIES is also presented for the occasion of the 2014 Integration Segment of the UN Economic and Social Council on Sustainable Urbanization at the United Nations, May 27-29. Throughout history, cities have been a source of development. Today urban centers account for 70% of the world’s GDP. Urbanization can be a powerful tool for transforming living standards, especially in developing countries. At a global level, this requires a shift in mindset of the decision makers, away from viewing urbanization as a problem, towards viewing urbanization as a tool for sustainable development. It is recognized that if cities are well planned and managed, they can promote an economically, socially, and environmentally sustainable urbanization. This session will look at sustainable urbanization through the lens of smart cities that use information and communication technologies as tools to achieve their goals. 'Smart city' also implies a high degree of responsiveness and transparency in meeting the needs of its citizens. Furthermore, it assumes cities are more nimble - able to adapt and reinvent themselves. The speakers will explore the issue from several viewpoints: a global perspective, a regional perspective, a city perspective, and a sectoral perspective. At issue is how to plan wisely, how to garner the political will, and how to effectively implement the idea of a smart, sustainable, resilient city.
