The Edge has officially been awarded LEED Gold certification, making it the largest residential development in NYC to achieve the title and one of the greenest buildings in the country. LEED Certification is official recognition from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) that a building has been developed to meet the highest, environmentally-conscious standards, to create and promote sustainable living. Achieving LEED certification verifies that a building meets eco-friendly standards in the following categories: energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, improved indoor environmental quality and stewardship of resources and their impacts.

How do I develop a leed certified building

STEP 1: Evaluate your project and its vision and decide if LEED certification is right for your project. Each step in your project, from inception to completion, will have to meet exacting standards. Please visit for complete details:

STEP 2: Once you decide that LEED is right for you, register at the U.S Green Building Institution's Site. To officially register, visit the below site and expect a registration fee:

STEP 3: Begin the application Process and complete necessary paperwork. Paperwork and documentation will vary depending on each unique project.

STEP 4: Once completed, the LEED Project Administrator, must submit all completed forms and pay a certification review fee online. From there, the project will be reviewed and accessed based on one of three LEED rating systems.

STEP 5: Based on the official review, the building will then be given official LEED certification, or may be denied. If denied, a building may choose to appeal.
