This paper from a consortium of organizations in British Columbia and Washington state explores the relationship between green features in a building and the financial impact on the building rents and value.  It seeks to link building designers with the financial community.  Valuation specialists performed this study by evaluating three buildings in Vancouver, Seattle, and Portland.  The impact of green choices on building values is discussed.  Various methods for establishing valuations are considered based on cost, recent sales, and income generated from rents.
