I am working on a unique project. 30 story existing historic building, office. It is being gut rehabbed and turned into 25 stories of residential, plus 5 stories of speculative (empty) office/retail space. The units will have individual water heaters but central heating and cooling plants. I believe this is best fit by LEED NCv2009, but wanted to get some secondary opinions.
Additionally, the project includes an existing parking garage which will provide parking for tenants. There is no work being proposed for this garage. Can it, or should it, be included within the project boundary for credits such as covered parking?
