AT&T Michigan Avenue
Comprehensive green building program
paired with great overall design
The first in the retailer’s portfolio to achieve LEED Gold certification, this
store raises the bar for green building without compromising the design aesthetic. Scoring high in Integration as well as Benchmarking, the project used
an integrated design approach; even vendors helped “rethink possible” at
an eco-charrette. With 150 video monitors to humanize the technology, the
energy impact is minimized with Energy Star appliances ( 91 percent), expansive glazing for daylighting, LED lighting ( 90 percent), and green power purchase. Reclaimed teak cladding warms the high-tech look of recycled-content
white solid surfacing. A wall display and store tours tell consumers about features such as regional sourcing, reduced water consumption, and 90 percent
construction waste diverted from a landfill. An independent agent is conducting post-occupancy commissioning of the store’s systems.
