Seattle Office High-Rise Awarded LEED Platinum Certification


Fourth & Madison, an 845.5k sf, 40-story office building located in Seattle's central business district, was awarded Platinum certification under the U.S. Green Building Council's (USGBC) LEEDŽ rating system for Existing Buildings. The property is owned by Teacher's Insurance and Annuity Association of America (TIAA) and managed by Hines.

Designed by Zimmer Gunsul Frasca Partnership and developed by Hines in 2002, Hines sold the property to TIAA in 2005. Hines has been responsible for managing and leasing the building since it opened in 2003.

In addition to this sustainability milestone, Fourth & Madison has earned the ENERGY STAR label every year since 2004. With a current score of 93, the building is 46 percent more energy efficient and saves more than $1 Million in annual energy costs when compared to the average U.S. office building. This translates to estimated annual greenhouse gas reductions equivalent to removing 998 passenger vehicles from the road.

Green features and sustainable programs include monthly landfill diversion of 78 percent through composting and recycling, including e-recycling, cooking oil recycling, lamp and battery recycling, and supporting a home e-recycling program; partnering with general contractors to maximize trash diversion during tenant improvement construction; whole building relamp project saving approximately 811,295 kwh each year; installation of native and adaptive plants for water saving landscaping; strong support for alternative commute modes with subsidized commuter passes, Zip-Cars, carpool and vanpool reduced parking rates; and multiple bike racks and lockers resulting in 84 percent of building occupants utilizing alternative modes of transportation. Additionally, Hines offers its proprietary GREEN OFFICE for Tenants and Retail program, which assists in giving tenants options to reduce their carbon footprint.
