I know folks are excited about Pittsburgh's green building momentum. But an extract from Melissa Hinca-Ownby
lead me to look at the Green Building Opportunity Index
that is recently out. She looks at one of the categories driving the ranking and there is this:
Green Culture – Downtown New York City
A city’s green economy, city innovation, planning & land use, and transit ridership data from SustainLane was used to rank cities in this category. (Pittsburgh, Pa., and Detroit, Mich., both received a score of zero in this category.)
A zero? See page 5 of the actual report.
