Consistent to the company's history of being a pioneer in sustainable building and their long term vision of positioning the company as the sustainable leader in the industry, Thomas Properties Group has set the ambitious task of greening their entire portfolio of existing properties. This initiative includes greening a total of 35 buildings equating to over 15 million square feet of Class A office space nationwide. As part of this endeavor TPG is participating in the exclusive LEED EB Portfolio Pilot program.
In addition, TPG is committed to greening all of their current and future development projects. Most recently they have achieved CS Silver Certification on Building 1 & 2 of their Four Points Centre development in Austin, TX; pre-certification LEED CS Gold on their corporate campus development, Campus El Segundo, in El Segundo, CA; and LEED NC Gold target for the cutting edge transit oriented MetroStudio@Lankershim development in Los Angeles, CA.
Campus El Segundo will be a model for its sustainable design, construction and on-going operations.
This transit-oriented development is Pre-Certified LEED CS Gold by the U.S. Green Building Council. The Campus El Segundo facilities were designed to integrate the latest in energy and water efficiency, waste and greenhouse gas reductions, and to be a healthy and productive environment for the building occupants.
TPG will also pursue LEED EB certification for its operations to ensure a continuous efficiency and sustainable management approach.
The MetroStudio@Lankershim will be a model for excellence in television production and a leading example of sustainable “green” design, construction and transit oriented development.
The proposed project is on track to achieve LEED NC rating at the Gold certification level for design and construction as well as its ongoing operations. It will integrate the latest in energy and water efficient technologies and the interior will be a healthy and productive space for the building occupants.
