Stonebridge III Earns LEED Silver Certification

First office building in North Fulton to gain certification


ATLANTA, March 3, 2010 —The United States Green Building Council (USGBC) has awarded LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Silver Core and Shell Certification to  Stonebridge III, an office building located in Sanctuary Park in metro Atlanta’s North Fulton submarket.   This is the first office building in this submarket to receive Silver LEED certification.

“Gaining LEED certification for the building’s core and shell enhances its attractiveness to tenants, especially those that may pursue Commercial Interior certification for their own space, as Delta Dental has done,” said Jones Lang LaSalle’s Clint Howell, Senior Vice President and Group Manager for Sanctuary Park. “As tenants increasingly focus on buildings with energy efficiency and sustainability features, this certification is a market differentiator that enhances the building’s long-term value.”

Stonebridge III is leased and managed by Jones Lang LaSalle, its Silver Certification verifies that it incorporates sustainable development and operational features resulting in efficient energy and water use, reduced construction waste, and high environmental quality of the building’s interior.

Sustainable building features at Stonebridge III include:  significant recycling of concrete, wood, paper/drywall, and metals from construction; an irrigation system fed from a storm-water-replenished, on-site lake; an energy-efficient chiller-based HVAC system; installation of innovative, energy efficient Light Emitting Diode (LED) lighting; incorporation of water-saving products in restrooms; and implementation of a single-stream recycling program that allows all recyclables to be collected from desk-side containers nightly.

Completed in December 2008, the 162,000-square-foot/six-story Stonebridge III is the latest building in Sanctuary Park, a nine-building/1.5 million-square-foot office park located on 150 acres in Alpharetta. The building, owned by Sanctuary Park Holding Co., is 90 percent leased to Delta Dental Insurance, which also earned LEED Silver certification for the build-out of its interior space.
