TELUS Garden Office Tower Awarded LEED Platinum
TELUS Garden’s office tower has secured LEED Platinum certification, distinguishing it as one of North America’s most environmentally friendly developments, TELUS chief sustainability officer Andrea Goertz says. Developed by Westbank with TELUS, the project includes the 22-storey office tower (opened last fall) and a 47-storey residential tower that’s under construction (targeting LEED Gold). TELUS Garden boasts a district energy system, reducing conventional energy demand by 80%, and the city’s largest solar panel array, located on the office tower rooftop. Tenants include Amazon, Accenture and Capstone Mining.
