Grab the 'green' real-estate boom - MSN Money: "Sustainable construction is one of the fastest-growing segments of the already-red-hot commercial-building industry.

And by 2010, 10% of all new commercial construction will be sustainable, according to McGraw-Hill's (MHP, news, msgs) 2006 Smart Market report. (The green trend in home construction is still in its infancy, although that's bound to change.)"
