Try Randy Croxton's office in New York City
He and I were interviewed (separately) by a Boston-based shopping center
developer who had good positive aspirations for turning their development
product in this ("green") direction.  I initially challenged their
intention saying that I thought that shopping centers were (in concept) as
"brown" as it comes. They countered.. we had a good, frank discussion.
Croxton got the job though, and is now, presumably well advanced in design.
