Inhabitat reader Erin [1] tells us that the University of North Texas [2] is in the midst of building another  LEED certified college football stadium [3]. The first LEED certified college football stadium opened in September 2009 at the University of Minnesota with their TCF Bank Stadium in Minneapolis [4]. After The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board [5] approved UNT’s proposal back in October the university held a groundbreaking ceremony to commemorate the special occasion. The new stadium will replace the 57-year-old Fouts Field, and is one of many green projects happening on campus as part of the UNT “We Mean Green [6]” initiative.
