Independence Station – LEED Platinum

The popular green building blog Jetson Green published an end-of-the-year post ‘33 Stunning LEED Platinum Projects‘, which featured a post on GreenWorks project – Independence Station.  The mixed-use project, located in downtown Independence, Oregon is on track to become the highest rated LEED building in the world, currently projecting a final tally of 64 points (based on current estimates). 

Working with inspirational developer Steven Ribeiro, from Aldeia Development,  along with a team from Ankrom-Moisan Associated ArchitectsJohnson Controls, Balzhiser & Hubbard Engineers, and Green Building Services, to name a few – the project is maximizing site regeneration through net zero water use, rainwater harvesting,  restoration of open spaces, rooftop ecoroofs with photovoltaics, rooftop terraces, green walls, and a range of other sustainable features throughout.
