The Las Vegas LINQ Goes LEED!

The Las Vegas LINQ Goes LEED! The latest edition to Las Vegas Strip is now LEED Silver, thanks to the efforts of Caesars Entertainment.

The new shopping and dining center received this certification from USGBC (United States Green Building Council), as part of their commitment to attempting LEED certifications for all future construction projects.

“As soon as we start the planning process for our new developments, we are considering ways to make our buildings part of a sustainable future. By considering building elements’ energy and water efficiency, indoor air quality, and materials, we are creating healthy, vibrant places for our guests to relax and play, and for our employees to work.” -Greg Miller, Caesars Entertainment Executive Vice President of Domestic Development.

Some of the LINQ’s LEED features include, an energy cost savings of more than 21 percent beyond the LEED requirement, drought tolerant and native landscaping, drip irrigation, high density and mixed used development,  and proximity to public transportation. Additionally, the LINQ design team developed a guidebook for all of its’ tenants, to help them understand the developments LEED features.
