    Green Guide for Developers

    by Katharine Logan

    CD-ROM Review: Green Developments by the Rocky Mountain Institute, 2002.

    "Real estate development was once a revered profession. It can be so again." This claim begins a new CD-ROM-based guide on "green" building for developers from the Rocky Mountain Institute.

    Green Developments argues that the time is ripe for a revival of the developer's role as respected creator of "something good and lasting." To help along the way, the CD-ROM provides volumes of stories and strategies, facts and figures, as well as some 200 green development case studies.

    Created primarily for real estate developers, this digital publication also offers much to those who work with developers: architects, planners, financiers, and advocates for the public interest — anyone, in fact, who has heard that green is good, but wants to know what that means in terms of actual building, and the costs and profits of actual building.
