Recently, One Nexus Way received its LEED Gold plaque, now installed in place on the side of the building. One Nexus, an 82,000-square-foot Class-A commercial building, is home to tenants including Waystone, Butterfield, State Street, Workplace Environments, Pane & Pasta, Carnivore and more. It was completed in 2018 and is built to LEED Gold certification specifications, including a 50,000-gallon rainwater cistern that both supports sustainability and offsets costs, an orientation that provides natural ventilation from prevailing winds and a design that maximises sunlight diffusion, offering plenty of natural daylight while still prioritising energy efficiency.
"It is becoming increasingly important to our tenants to be located within developments that can demonstrate a commitment to sustainability," said Kristy Rivers, Dart Vice President of Business Development and Leasing. "This is further supported by the global trend which attests to green certification achieving a premium in leased real estate at an overall rate of 6% [source: Dalton and Fuerst].
"LEED certification is one of the many ways in which we solidify this commitment at Dart."
