Environmentally Friendly Building Sets Example For Baltimore

A classic Art Deco building in Downtown Baltimore that stood vacant for 15 years has been renovated and updated into one of the area's most extensive uses of green building techniques.

"Today, the 1.3 million-square-foot structure is not only the city's largest office building, but it also serves as the area's most extensive use of green design and technology. Although the changes are invisible from the outside, the $70 million Montgomery Park complex utilizes a diverse environmental preservation strategy in an area surrounded by industrial brownfield sites. Montgomery Park won the Environmental Protection Agency's Phoenix Award in 2003, recognizing environmentally compromised properties that have been returned to productive use."

"From the 20,000 square-foot green roof to the energy-saving, photo-sensor-controlled lighting system, Montgomery Park serves as a model for how green technology can work seamlessly for the business community."
