Abstract: The promotion of sustainable practice in real estate development has more and more influences on the society. However, most of the real estate development projects display few green features. This paper examines 10 typical barriers encountered in the process of real estate development and facilities management by employing questionnaire survey. Case study approach is adopted to investigate how and why the barriers can hinder the implementation of real estate development projects. It approaches the subject from the whole process of developing real estate project, including plan and design, construction and operation and management stages. Research results show that high cost for green appliance and lack of motivation from customers’ demand are identified as the two major barriers. The paper concludes by exploring the reasons that these barriers exist and suggesting some ways in which the barriers may be overcome.
