Despite Oregon’s early embrace of sustainability and many prominent green builders, the state ranks 18th for number of LEED projects, with 684; 382 are registered and 302 are certified, per the U.S. Green Building Council. Portland, though, ranks 10th among U.S. cities with 337 projects. Here are Oregon’s top 25 LEED-certified projects, ranked by square feet. Of these, only Symantec’s office in Springfield is located outside Portland. Multi-use blends of office, retail and residential account for 15; five are offices; two are public assemblies; and an industrial park, health care facility and hotel round out the list.

The 61-year-old Eugene grant writer spent 31 years taking care of his autistic brother James, and in the late 1980s developed a spreadsheet that created a series of nonsense characters that grew or shrank depending on how much money James had in his account.
