I’m proud of our partnership with 3D Development and their vision that helped lead us to this achievement.”
Corrigan Station achieved LEED certification for implementing practical and measurable strategies and solutions aimed at achieving high performance in sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality.
