New York will not be rising anytime soon. NYC started getting LEED certified buildings a decade later than everyone else, and the economics of getting your building to LEED status are not favorable in the state still, so the only places on the list are either ultra-luxury or big corporate offices. This is mostly done for marketing purposes.
