The Exchange on Sixteenth is Certified LEED Platinum
We’re wrapping up a very successful project at Kilroy’s The Exchange on Sixteenth in Mission Bay, San Francisco, and with that comes the wonderful news that the four-building, 750,000-square-foot development has earned LEED Platinum certification under the Core & Shell rating system created by the U.S. Green Building Council.
‚ÄúThe Exchange demonstrates the successful execution of combining great design with ambitious sustainability goals,‚ÄĚ says Jonas Vass, Senior Vice President of Development at Kilroy. ‚ÄúThe LEED Platinum certification shows the team‚Äôs extensive focus on sustainability from the project inception through completion, successfully incorporating various environmental goals throughout the process.‚ÄĚ
The now-Platinum-certified environmentally-focused design (by Rios Clementi Hale Studios with Flad Architects) features:
- Extensive green roofs
- 45% water reduction using highly efficient water fixtures
- Holistic approach to health & wellness including ample daylight, access to views, activated stairwells, mechanical design emphasizing thermal comfort, and low-emitting materials
- Large onsite bicycle amenity
- Remediated brownfield
- A 19% reduction in energy consumption via an efficient mechanical system
- Materials purchasing focused on recycled content, regional sourcing, and FSC wood
- Enhanced commissioning
- Electric car charging stations
Aside from the ability to drive right alongside The Exchange when on the 280 freeway, we look forward to when the public can enjoy it from ground level on walks to and from the new Warriors’ Chase Center!
