Raising the Standards
From the beginning, the developers of Ballantyne have recognized the importance of creating environmental sustainability within our office environment as well as among customers and the community. Over two decades ago, Ballantyne’s master planners began their commitment to creating a strong infrastructure from family farmland.
Long stewards of the environment, Ballantyne remains committed to sustainable business practices. Northwood Office continues to evaluate energy management, water conservation, recycling efforts and more to ensure we are implementing the most effective and environmentally-friendly practices.
Ballantyne exemplifies responsible development. The Corporate Park features more than two million square feet of LEED® Gold-certified office space. Northwood Office is compliant with LEED requirements regarding smoking areas’ distance from buildings and air intakes. Aloft Charlotte Ballantyne is also LEED-certified.
The importance of sustainability is also at the foundation of Ballantyne’s landscaping functions.
Ballantyne is committed to maintaining a healthy ecosystem for animal life.
Ballantyne features 60 Eastern Bluebird nesting boxes throughout the golf course and the balance of the Corporate Park to provide a safe nesting environment for the bluebirds. Since the program started in February 2010, tenants and members of the community have shown a vested interest in participating through sponsoring their own nesting boxes and data from each box is reported annually to the Audubon nest box census. The Eastern Bluebird boxes are an instrumental piece of Ballantyne’s Audubon Program for the community.
Ballantyne is committed to educating its tenants about the importance of sustainability.
Northwood strives for continuous improvement in sustainability, driven by the opportunity to further enhance its daily practices. Please contact our LEED Team if we may be of assistance.
