St. John Properties is committed to sustainable solutions as we design and develop business parks across our portfolio.
We’re focusing on ways to conserve water and energy, limit transportation and waste of building materials, improve indoor air quality, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions from our properties.
We’re proud to be a member of the U.S. Green Building Council, and we follow their criteria when seeking LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification for buildings.
Recent examples of our sustainable building practices include:
Danfoss • Baltimore Crossroads @95 • White Marsh, MD
Denmark-based Danfoss Group chose Baltimore Crossroads @95 business park as the site to relocate the headquarters of its North American air conditioning and refrigeration division. It also chose its landlord/developer St. John Properties to handle the build-to-suit work on the 46,200 sq. ft. facility, with sustainable and green design elements that meet LEED-CI (Commercial Interior) certification.
Features include a high-efficiency HVAC (heating, ventilating and air conditioning) system, high performance windows, lavatories featuring low water volume toilets and waterless urinals, a white thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO) roofing system, Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)-certified wood, drought-tolerant landscaping and plants, and low VOC (volatile organic compounds) paints, carpets and adhesives.
Melford Plaza II • MD Science & Technology Center @Melford • Bowie, MD
St. John Properties designed and developed this four-story Class “A” office building to meet LEED-CS (Core & Shell) certification. The 155,000 sq. ft. structure is equipped for optimal energy performance and water efficiency. The building incorporates green power and certifiable levels of recycled and locally sourced materials. St. John Properties used low-emitting paints, adhesives and sealants, and will utilize green housekeeping.
