Macerich Co., the owner of the newly redeveloped Northgate mall, is taking another look at its green parking practices.

Hoping to become California’s first regional mall to be LEED certified, officials have reserved 154 parking spaces, or 5 percent of the mall’s 3,100 spaces, for “low-emitting fuel-efficient vehicles.”

Doing so helps the mall with its plan to earn Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design green building certification status, awarded by the U.S. Green Building Council.

A nine-page list of low-emitting vehicles, determined by the council, is available at the mall’s guest services kiosk and at the management office, mall representatives said. The list includes hundreds of makes, years and models, everything from electric and hybrid vehicles manufactured in 2000 to dozens of compact models built in 2010.
