The nation’s capital is also the capital of LEED-certified construction, according to new data released by ABODO.
 
The Washington, D.C., metro area is home to more than 183 million square feet of residential construction and 310 million square feet of commercial construction that has received LEED certification. Among the states, Texas has the most LEED-certified residential construction projects, with 6,945—and more than half of them, 3,797, are in Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington metro market, which is also the metro with the largest quantity of LEED-certified residential projects. California places second among the states with 5,255 projects, thanks primarily to the 2,251 projects in the Los Angeles-Long Beach-Anaheim corridor, while New York ranks in third with 2,215.
 
When it comes to average square footage, the Greater Chicago area boasts the largest with the average size of a residential LEED project at 131,689 square feet, slightly ahead of Greater Boston’s 131,109 square feet. At the other end of the metro spectrum, Washington’s Seattle-Tacoma-Bellevue market averages 76,301 square feet for its LEED-certified residences, which is roughly 12,000 square feet smaller than in the rest of Washington.
