Watch Your LEED, Austin

Westin is building an 18-story hotel in Austin, Texas, seeks green build certification, and intends the design to be "uniquely Austin." Nashville has been through this song-and-dance with a proposed 20-story Westin down on Lower Broad; first Westin agreed to LEED standards, and then they complained about green standards and stalled, and then they started the whole painful planning process over again by eliminating planned condos. Maybe Austin will have better luck with them than we had.
