Sustainability and climate change are reshaping the land use, real estate, and business environment. Foster Pepper's Sustainable Development/Green Building Industry Group is efficiently and effectively creating practical solutions for cutting edge challenges. When environmental review for a county wind/solar energy overlay zone was appealed, we settled the case before it was briefed. We drafted the CC&Rs and developed financing for Seattle’s first Built Green neighborhood. We assisted clients in securing the first state bio-energy loan program funding. And, we are providing sustainable development advice throughout the state on projects that involve planning, permitting, stormwater, and water rights.
We know virtually every aspect of transactional real estate, and land use/environmental law. We also have wide-ranging municipal, business, energy/utility, and litigation experience. With this background, and knowledge of the changing legal environment, we are crafting sustainable solutions for our clients and communities.
