I am possibly interested in starting up two new companies that are involved with GREEN BUILDING real estate development, brokerage, and management as well as redevelopment of existing assets to make them LEED Certified/GREEN. We also plan to start an e-commerce site selling only GREEN building products and also be the owners/developers of mixed-use business parks that will house green building business, research, technology, and manufacturing uses. Which city is promoting the GREEN movement?

I think we would all agree that anything in the homebuilding industry is risky right now. That being said, I think if the market improves you can find a market here in Orlando. Many people in the area are environmentally conscious, not necessarily tree huggers, but the Green movement is starting to take grips. For what it's worth many new building here, including our new basketball palace, the Amway Center are LEED certified. We were also selected by Nissan as one of the first markets to release the electric powered Leaf with re-powering stations throughout the city.

Lake County is very small business friendly and big on green initiatives.

Thanks for the info. We are 90% on the commercial side of the LEED certified business, and will do multifamily on the residential side. It is good to hear that Orlando is making headway in the green industry. I will certainly consider the area as we move forward. Thanks again.
