I can see that group certification (AGMBC Part II) is now available. However, a note on the USGBC website mentions:

"Until functionality is available in LEED Online to certify group projects, please note that all buildings must be registered individually. "

So for a group project consisting of 5 buildings, we will have to pay individual registration / submission fees for each building. Will this always be the case or will USGBC in due time request only one project registration / submittal fee for the whole group?

Makes a big difference, especially for small projects where each of the buildings is less than 50.000 ft2 and needs to pay the flat fee, compared to the case where the aggregate project would be required to pay fees based on ft2. Additionally, the registration fee gets multipled many times.

Thanks for all replies.
