Creating a thriving city in the desert has taken centuries of ingenuity and innovation by generations of Phoenix residents. We will need to continue to call upon this ingenuity and innovation if we are to address the challenges we face regarding our natural resources. Phoenix has long been a leader in the environmental movement. From its commitment to having new facilities meet or exceed Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standards, to its ongoing efforts to acquire and preserve thousands of acres of desert and mountain areas. By continuing to celebrate and harness its natural assets, Phoenix will continue to build a sustainable future.

Creating a thriving city in the desert has taken centuries of ingenuity and innovation by generations of Phoenix residents. We will need to continue to call upon this ingenuity and innovation if we are to address the challenges we face regarding our natural resources. Phoenix has long been a leader in the environmental movement. From its commitment to having new facilities meet or exceed Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standards, to its ongoing efforts to acquire and preserve thousands of acres of desert and mountain areas. By continuing to celebrate and harness its natural assets, Phoenix will continue to build a sustainable future.
LaPour, partnered with Holualoa Companies, is committed to the “Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design” (LEED) Green Building Rating System which is presently a voluntary standard for developing high performance sustainable buildings. With that said, LaPour, partnered with Holualoa Companies, developed the 28th Street & Camelback Mixed Use Property with the highest LEED certified rating achievable. Many of the elements associated with LEED have already been incorporated within the building design (e.g. glass/windows, materials, shade, etc.) and the Site Plan design (e.g. preserving tress, providing shaded walkways/parking areas, capturing runoff for irrigation, etc.).

Objectives

  1. Learn about the site preservation of mature landscaping (i.e. trees) and the enhancement of landscaping.
