November 06, 2019 / Michael Gerrity

According to the 2019 Green Building Adoption Index by CBRE, Maastricht University and the University of Guelph, Chicago's office market was named the greenest in the U.S. for the third year in a row as the green building trend continues to expand in the nation's largest cities. Researchers found green-certified office space across America's 30 largest office markets has reached 42.2% up from 41.9% the year before, marking a new high. At the same time, CBRE also released the inaugural Multifamily Green Building Adoption Index, which shows growth in this sector as well, though starting at a lower level than the office sector. 3.3% of multifamily apartment units in top 30 multifamily markets are green-certified.
