Brooks Sports Headquarters, a 5-story, 127,000-gsf office in Seattle, is paving the way for the region’s new generation of highly sustainable buildings. Designed by LMN, developed and built by Skanska, it’s the first project to use the City of Seattle’s Deep Green Pilot Program, requiring public realm and ecological contributions well beyond LEED Platinum. While adhering to market-rate rental pricing, the project achieves 75% reductions in energy and water use, and establishes a community hub on the Burke-Gilman Trail, fusing the tenant’s philosophy of promoting active outdoor life with a heightened sense of connectedness with the environment.
