Transcript of LEED ND - Getting Started

defining the project site
the impact of the development program and timeline
the mapping and base calculations required for many prerequisite and credits
Site Elements
The lands within a 1/2-mile distance from the project boundary have a pre-project connectivity of at least 140 intersections per square mile.
Infill Site
Project Site
encompassing one block and single adjacent street right-of-way
Site Types
Team (Lead People)
The portion of the boundary bordering waterfront, other than a stream, is excluded from the calculation.
The site can be separated from previously developed land by a small greenway or other permanently protected undeveloped land.
At least 75% of the land area, exclusive of rights-of-way, within a 1/2-mile distance from the project boundary is previously developed.
The site, in combinations with bordering parcels, forms an aggregate parcel whose boundary is 75% bounded by parcels that individually are at least 50% previously developed and that in aggregate are at least 75% previously developed.
At least 75% of the site’s boundary borders parcels that individually are at least 50% previously developed and that in aggregate are at least 75% previously developed.
The site has been altered by paving, construction, and /or land use that would have typically required permitting.
The site does not include land previously cleared for agriculture or forestry.
encompassing two blocks, and intervening street right-of-way
encompassing one block, including public alley
The LEED 2009 for Neighborhood Development Rating System is a set of performance standards for certifying the planning, development, and redevelopment of neighborhoods.
Getting Started
Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design
Portion of the site where construction can occur, including land voluntarily set aside and not constructed upon Buildable land does not include public right-of-way, land excluded from development by codified law (such as a park), or land excluded from development by LEED for Neighborhood Development prerequisites (such as wetland or steep slope).

Additionally, the applicant can exclude up to 15% of buildable land under any of the three conditions:
It is protected from development by easement, deed restriction, or other enforceable legal instrument.
25% of the excluded area borders a body of water or another protected area outside the project boundary.
Ownership of the excluded area is transferred to a public entity.
recognizes that a completed project has achieved all of the prerequisites and credits attempted
Platted property line of the project defining land and water within it.
Projects on publicity owned campuses that do not have internal property lines must delineate a sphere-of-influence line instead.
Projects must not contain noncontiguous parcels, but parcels can be separated by public rights-of-way.
Projects must not contain noncontiguous parcels, but parcels can be separated by public rights-of-way.
Projects may have enclaves of nonproject properties no subject to the rating systems that do not exceed 2% of total project area. These enclaves cannot be described as certified.
the majority of the total project square footage should be planned new construction and/or major renovation existing buildings and uses may be included
the project developer should control the majority of buildable land but not need to control the entire area
Regional Priority Credit (RPC)
Smart Location and Linkage (SLL)
Green Infrastructure and Buildings (GIB)
Neighborhood Pattern and Design (NPD)
acceptance of infrastructure by local jurisdiction
issuance of occupancy certificates by building department
construction of infrastructure and buildings
continued public outreach
preparation of final site plan
infrastructure design
building designs
acquisition of construction permits
initial planning of land uses
transportation networks and major facilities
public outreach
refinement of plans
property selection
stakeholder identification and outreach
information gathering
environmental review
conceptional planning
development programming
Sustainability Focus:
Smart location
Sensitive lands protection
Site and transportation design
Public health
Social equality
Energy and climate protection
Water efficiency
Infrastructure efficiency
There is no minimum or maximum size for a LEED ND project, but the recommended size is at least (2) buildings and a maximum of 320 acres.
It provides a certification to exemplary development projects that perform well in terms of smart growth, urbanism, and green building.
Innovation and Design Process (IDP)
applicable for fully entitled projects of projects under construction completing this review can help projects secure financing, expedite permitting, or attract tenants
provides approval of a LEED for Neighborhood Development plan before the project developer has completed the entitlements, or public review, process the option of Stage 1 approval is intended to help projects get support from the local government and community

What About Green Neighborhood Development?
Previously Developed Site

Amount of building structures constructed on the project site.

Dwelling Unit: Living quarters intended for long-term occupancy that provides facilities for cooking, sleeping, and sanitation.
Does not include hotel rooms.
The total land area of a project site covered by buildings, streets, parking areas, and other typically impermeable surfaces constructed as part of the project
Floor-Area Ratio (FAR): Density of nonresidential land use, exclusive of parking.
Measured as total nonresidential building floor area divided by the total buildable land area available for the nonresidential structures.

Example: Site with 10,000 square feet of building land area
5,000 square feet building floor area (equals) FAR 0.5;
10,000 square feet building floor area (equals) FAR 1.0;
15,000 square feet building floor area (equals) FAR 1.5;
A dedicated right-of-way that can accommodate one or more modes of travel.Suitable for primary entrances and provides access to the front and/or sides of building and lots.May be privately owned if deeded in perpetuity for general public use.Must be an addressable thoroughfare (for mail purposes) under the standards of the applicable regulating authority.Alleys and paseos are excluded.
the exterior wall of a building that is set along a Frontage line. See elevation. Forecourt: a private Frontage wherein a portion of the Facade is close to the Frontage Line and the central portion is set back.
the area between a building Facade and the vehicular lanes, inclusive of its built and planted components. Frontage is divided into Private Frontage and Public Frontage. See Table 4A and Table 7.
land bounded by the project boundary, transportation or utility rights-of-way that may be publicly dedicated or privately owned and deeded in perpetuity for general public use, waterfront, and/or comparable land division features.
Bicycle Network: a continuous network consisting of any combination of physically designated in-street bicycle lanes at least 5 feet wide off-street bicycle paths or trails at least 8 feet wide for a two-way path and at least 5 feet wide for a one-way path, and/or streets designed for a target speed of 25 miles per hour or slower.

Walk Distance: the distance that a pedestrian must travel between origins and destinations without obstruction, in a safe and comfortable environment on a continuous network of sidewalks, all-weather-surface footpaths, crosswalks, woonerfs, or equivalent pedestrian facilities.
the distance between points where right of way (ROW) within the project intersects or terminate at the project boundary

maximum allowable distances between intersect points are stipulated in each credit

Qualifying intersections include the following:
intersections of streets with dedicated alleys and transit right of way; and
intersections of streets with nonmotorized rights of way (e.g., bike paths), which can be up to 20% of the total intersections.

Certain types of intersections do not count:
intersections leading only to cu-de-sacs; and
intersections of an alley with alley.

The square mile calculation excludes the following features:
Water bodies;
Parks larger than 1/2 acre;
Public facility campuses;
Rail yards;
Slopes over 15%; and
Other nonbuildable areas under codified law or the rating system.
Base Calculations
Land-Use Densities
Residential: Dwelling units per acre of buildable land available for residential uses.
Nonresidential: Floor-area ratio (FAR) of buildable land area available for nonresidential uses.
In both cases, structured parking is excluded.
