Did you know there is one LEED credit available for the inclusion of a bike rack1 into a new building project? Yeah, me too. Help Station North become more sustainable by entering the Station North Bike Rack Competition.
Entries due Friday, November 7th. Full details here.
1the LEED credit is actually only available if the bike rack is large enough to accomodate bikes for 5% of office building occupants, along with a changing room and shower for .5% of occupants. If it's a residential building, you're going to need a rack large enough for 15% of occupants, but you can skip the shower. The Station North competition actually has nothing to do with LEED at all, I was just reminded of it earlier today by Boyer, who has a new blog, of this we are sure.
