Metropolitan Center is a model at the state and national level for sustainable redevelopment of historic structures. The project will be innovative in its approach to energy efficiency, and will seek LEED® Certification, potentially at the Platinum level – the highest level offered by the United States Green Building Council (hyperlink to USGBC). Green design elements will include Geothermal heating and cooling, a living green roof (hyper link to Terra Roof) and Electric Vehicle Charging stations, among others. The project has been chosen by Consumers Energy as one of 10 pilot projects in the nation that will be used as a model for energy efficient redevelopment of historic urban structures.
