New York State added 34 million square feet of green building space in 2012, putting it third in a state ranking of total green building space and seventh when ranked by space per capita, Crain’s reported. The state added 1.77 square feet per resident of LEED-certified space last year, which puts it just behind Maryland, which added 1.9 square feet per resident, but some ways away behind Washington D.C., which added 36.97 square feet per resident.

In terms of total square footage, New York was behind California, which added 54 million square feet of green building space, and Texas, which added 36 million square feet.

Rick Fedrizzi, the president of the U.S. Green Building Council, which generated the report, said that a place on the list was the sign of “a healthier present and future for the people of New York. From architects and designers to local chapter advocates, their collective efforts have brought sustainable building design and use to the forefront of New York’s discussion on the environment.”

Among the city’s buildings that won a gold certification last year was 345 Park Avenue, which since 2010 has been the headquarters of the National Football League. [Crain’s]Hiten Samtani
