Sustainable Design Is at Core of Chandler Veridian Development

by Mike Hunter

Offices at Chandler Veridian, capstone to the Chandler Viridian mixed-use project, has recently earned Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED® Core and Shell rating system.

At six stories, the award-winning building is the tallest multi-tenant office building in Chandler. The Class A office building with 252,418 square feet of leasable space is located at the intersection of Loop 101 and Loop 202 near the Chandler Fashion Center. The building features a large, open floor plan with 10-foot-tall ceilings, a lounge and a large courtyard. Green features include low-flow water fixtures, LED lighting, and native and drought-tolerant plants. Current tenants include Stantec, a global engineering, architecture and consulting firm; Workuity, a co-working firm; Clear Choice, a dental implant company; and Oaktree Funding Corp., a wholesale mortgage lender. The nearby Chandler Viridian PRIMEGATE’s retail offerings include Panera Bread, Sicilian Butcher, Thirsty Lion and Charles Schwab.

Chandler Viridian, which won Mixed-Use Project of the Year and Speculative Office of the Year at the 2019 Best of NAIOP Arizona Awards and Commercial Property Executive Magazine’s 2018 Distinguished Achievement Silver Award for Repositioning/Redevelopment, is a 25-acre mixed-use project that also includes a Cambria Hotel & Suites, Broadstone Fashion Center luxury apartments, sophisticated retail offerings at Chandler Viridian PRIMEGATE and a pedestrian promenade to the Chandler Fashion Center mall. Also featured in the master plan is a dog park, three-quarter-mile jogging trail connecting all of the properties and a large public plaza with high-speed internet and Wi-Fi — all to enhance the pedestrian experience.

Hines, a privately owned international real estate firm that has long been a leader in sustainable design and in promoting sustainability programs around the world, developed the project in a joint venture agreement with New York Life Real Estate Investors, on behalf of its institutional client.

Hines partners with multiple institutions to identify best operating practices and cutting-edge technologies in order to stay in the forefront of building operations. The international real estate firm currently has 97 properties that are certified, pre-certified or registered under the various LEED rating systems, as well as 165 buildings that have earned the ENERGY STAR label.
