Lisa Michelle Galley, a thankfully regular commenter here, has a superb piece about the ULI Emerging Trends conference in San Francisco. I'm not going to try to analyze it or summarize it. Just click here and you will NOT be disappointed. (And then bookmark or favorite her blog; it is worth it.) In addition to all the other prognosticating and a shortlist of ideas to consider in the current market (all of which I need to digest), the one thing I had to comment on is this comment: "Two years from now, a Class A non-green building will not be considered Class A." That says something to me. That may be a bit over the top, but if it did happen I would not be shocked, because it'll be tenant-driven.
