Fort Lauderdale offices vying for LEED certification

March 24, 2010 12:32PM

Fort Lauderdale’s 1401 Crown Center, the 76,703-square-foot office building off of Cypress Creek Road, has achieved LEED New Building Silver Certification, thanks to extensive renovations on the building, originally built in the early 1980s. The building was certified for occupancy in February 2009, and currently houses Parkson Corporation’s global headquarters and CBS Interactive. Property manager Midgard Management said 1475 Crown Center is also angling for LEED certification for existing buildings. If successful, Crown Center would become the only campus in South Florida with multiple LEED-certified buildings, Midgard said. TRD
