Commercial spaces have quite clearly evolved and advanced in the past decade, paying homage now more than ever to going green. New and current developments include architecture and design that have set themselves above the rest in environmental standards, including LEED design. Older buildings are renovating using upcycled products, LED lights and sustainably produced materials. There is much more planning on behalf of owners, tenants and industry professionals involving green ideas that have proven to benefit their stakeholders’ health and well-being.
