Vornado Goes Green
Yesterday, Vornado/Charles E. Smith (here's COO Patrick Tyrell) hosted its Green Fair, one of the largest private sustainability education program/expos in the DC region, at 251 18th St in Crystal City. Crystal City is truly the “Emerald City,” with Metro, Capital Bikeshare, recycling, multiple charging stations, making it the perfect venue for the Green Fair. Over 300 of Vornado’s property managers and engineers who run the firm's 20M SF very green portfolio were in attendance—plus over 20 of Washington’s top energy-forward companies. Vornado is the largest owner of LEED certified property in the Washington area (and the US) and their green focus permeates every part of the organization. With energy efficiency the theme of the day, its Green Fair also featured the firm's fleet of hybrid “Vornado Volts," one of which Patrick poses with here. For more info on our sponsor, click here.
