Raleigh, N.C. and Chicago — Environmental initiatives are climbing in priority, says the company.
Raleigh, N.C. and Chicago — The 57,637-square-foot Market at Colonnade in Raleigh and 57,637-square-foot Mariano’s Fresh Market, which anchors the 140,461-square-foot Rosque Square in Chicago, have received LEED Silver certifications.
Sustainability highlights for the Whole Foods-anchored Market at Colonnade include two electric car charging stations and a low impact design (LID), which captures and reuses up to 300,000 gallons of stormwater runoff for site irrigation and plumbing. Redevelopments at Roscoe Square now feature a green roof, underground detention cistern, high-performance glazing and energy-efficient lighting strategies. Also, 96 percent of the construction debris from the project was recycled.
Both of these properties are owned by Regency Centers, which is exploring ways to make commercial real estate and retail more environmentally sustainable.
