Green Building Permit Incentives

We put your project ahead of others to help you meet the highest sustainability goals.

  • Priority Green Expedited: Available for all new construction projects. Gives you faster building permit review and processing for projects that meet green building standards. 
  • Priority Green Facilitated: A streamlined permitting process for master use permits in exchange for meeting green building standards.
  • Innovation Advisory Committee: This group of experts will review energy-efficient proposals not covered in the technical codes.
  • Living Building Pilot: Allows you to request departures from the Seattle Land Use Code through Design Review and offers height and floor area incentives for projects attempting to meet the Living Building Challenge.
  • Residential Deconstruction: If you are removing housing, a residential deconstruction permit may allow you to begin the process before a new building permit for the site is issued. (Deconstruction is taking apart a building in order to save the maximum amount of reusable building materials.)
