The Real Deal Miami

Miami developers going green

Building green office buildings is no longer a vanity project for
developers — it’s becoming a required standard, as
The Real Deal reported
in
January. Miami’s 600 Brickell has green features from heat-repelling
“skin” to energy-efficient internal mechanics. “It’s unbelievable how
much the world has changed in three years,” said Wiliam Holly, who
developed Miami Green in Coral Gables in 2008 and is now at Cushman and
Wakefield. “At the time everybody was laughing. Now many national and
international brokers are saying that in the very near future you will
not be considered a Class A building if you aren’t green, if you’re not
LEED-certified.” [Miami
