With CityLine, KDC and its design and construction partners aren’t just developing a
master-planned community for today—they’re keeping tomorrow very much in mind. That means a commitment to sustainability. For the office components, LEED Silver certification from the U.S. Green Building Council will be pursued, which involves using recycled and renewable materials and water- and energy-efficient strategies.
Density plays a key role, says Joe Haver, project manager at Corgan, which designed State Farm’s campus. Environmental impact will be lessened by building up, rather than out. “You’ve also got the live-work-play, with retail and residential,” Haver says. “So people can do all three of those things without having to get in their cars and leave the site.”
Security and sustainability are the two most important considerations for Raytheon, says Brady Ream, project executive with Adolfson & Peterson, which is constructing the defense contractor’s three-building office campus at CityLine. The company and its subcontractors are using energy-efficient materials and heating and cooling systems. “And we’re recycling a ton of concrete,” Ream says.
