MASS.-WIDE—Our commonwealth is flush with green buildings: "Coming in at No. 4, Massachusetts had more than 13 million square feet of LEED-certified space in 2012, or 2.05 feet per capita. There are now more than 470 certified buildings in Massachusetts, 106 of which were certified in 2012 alone. Of particular note is the Atlantic Wharf, which obtained a Platinum certification–the USGBC's highest level possible–making it Boston's first LEED skyscraper." [BostInno]
