Committed to Sustainability

The Strip District Terminal has was renovated to achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) Silver Certification. The U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED green building program is the preeminent program for the design, construction, maintenance and operations of high-performance green buildings. Learn more at


Healthy Environment

No smoking in or near the building to create a healthier environment for building occupants.

Public Transportation

Access to public transportation: Multiple bus stops within ¼ mile and Amtrak Station within ½ mile walk.

Energy-Efficient Vehicles

Preferred parking for low-emitting and fuel-efficient vehicles.

Air Quality

Outdoor air delivery monitoring implemented to monitor the quality of air brought in from the outdoors.


Effective recycling system implemented.

At The Terminal, 96.5% of drywall, plastic, metal, wood and other building materials have been recycled, salvaged or donated.

Indoor Environmental Quality

  • 100% low-emitting paints, adhesives, sealants, and flooring.
  • HVAC systems and building envelope designed for occupant thermal comfort.
  • Ventilation system monitoring: more than 30% more outdoor air is provided compared to typical buildings to deliver superior indoor air quality to all occupants.


  • 10% more energy savings than typical buildings through the installation of energy-efficient HVAC equipment and LED lighting.
  • Building HVAC and lighting performance energy systems were commissioned to ensure efficient performance.
  • Enhanced refrigerant management: no harmful CFC-based refrigerants used.

How Occupants Can Help

  • Walk, bike, or take public transportation to reduce CO2 emissions while getting around.
  • Use reusable bags and recycle all plastics, glass, cans, and paper products.
  • Tenants should turn off lights when not in use and program the thermostat for when they are away.
  • Tenants should turn off all electronics, appliances, and lights when not in use to reduce overall energy demand.
