Metro Atlanta Medical Office Building Attains LEED Certification
Brasfield & Gorrie constructed Northside-Cherokee Towne Lake medical office building in Woodstock from recycled materials.

 

WOODSTOCK, GA. -- The United States Green Building Council (USGBC) has awarded LEED certification to the Northside-Cherokee Towne Lake medical office building (MOB) in Woodstock. Indianapolis-based Duke Realty is the developer and owner of the four-story, 100,797-square-foot MOB, which opened in June 2013.

 

"LEED certification identifies Duke Realty's Northside-Cherokee Towne Lake  medical office building as a showcase example of sustainable design and demonstrates leadership in transforming the building industry," says Richard Fedrizzi, president, CEO and founding chairman of USGBC.

 

Before the MOB was constructed at the site, a local developer began construction of a mixed-use project in the high-profile Towne Lake area of Woodstock, about 25 miles north of Atlanta. During the Great Recession, the retail and restaurant buildings faltered, and proposed townhomes were never built. By 2009, the mixed-use space was mostly vacant.

 

Under Duke Realty's direction, the contractor, Brasfield & Gorrie, recycled more than 90 percent of the remaining demolished building materials, diverting them from local landfills. The design team, including Duke Realty and architects Lyman Davidson Dooley Inc., was able to integrate existing site elements such as rubble retaining walls, a large retention water feature and surface parking lots into the final design of the project.

 

"The Northside-Cherokee Towne Lake project is a success on many levels," says Jeremy Fortier, senior healthcare manager of Duke Realty. "LEED certification is the icing on the cake. This recognition reflects the commitment and dedication Duke Realty has for green design, building and operations."

 

Located at 900 Towne Lake Parkway in Woodstock, the Class A MOB is leased solely by Northside Hospital and houses a wide variety of outpatient healthcare services and physician practices. Duke Realty Towne Lake Development LLC, a wholly owned entity of Duke Realty LP, owns the facility.
