We are working on a Retail (fast food store) that is currently in the LEED registration process. We are confused with the selection of the rating system because we were originally treating it as a BD+C: Retail because the project will be built from zero. However, now, with the store, a strip mall will be built. The store will be part of this strip mall. And the same construction company will have the full scope of the mall + the food retail store.

Can we pursue LEED ID+C: Retail instead, given the fact that the strip mall will not pursue any LEED certification and only the retail store will?

Best Regards,
