Highlights

Even our trees are solar. Our parking lot features Solar Trees® — covered parking areas with solar panels on top that provide both shade for your car and power for the region.

Our carpet’s a retread. Literally, it’s made from recycled tires. Most of the items you see in the center are made from recycled materials, including our furniture.

Bright ideas. The center features the newest technology in lighting, reducing our energy use. Each room is equipped with sensors that automatically turn off the lights when it’s not being used.
