Priority Green Facilitated is a streamlined permitting process for master use permits in exchange for meeting green building standards. We provide this opportunity in order to assist innovative projects that will serve as visible models of high performance and sustainability. Priority Green Facilitated:
Priority Green Facilitated projects require an agreement with us before you submit your master use permit application or early design guidance application. You must use a collaborative design and development approach, also known as an integrated design process.
Your project must meet one of the following green building standards:
Priority Green Building Matrix
Achieve at least 10 points on the Priority Green Facilitated Building Matrix. The matrix is currently being revised. You can get a copy by emailing us at email@example.com.
Living Building Pilot
The Living Building Pilot program allows you to request additional departures from the Seattle Land Use Code through Design Review, and provides height and floor area incentives for buildings attempting to meet the Living Building Challenge.
