A major new downtown redevelopment project in Washington, D.C., has recently been awarded LEED® Platinum certification under the Core and Shell rating system by the U.S. Green Building Council. The renovation project, 1200 Nineteenth Street, is a 340,000-square-foot, 11-story office building developed by Hines. Located in D.C.’s Central Business District, 1200 Nineteenth Street was designed by SmithGroup with mechanical/ electrical engineering by TOLK, a Dewberry Company.
