October 26, 2018 - Retail

Newton, MA Bierbrier Development of Lexington has received another Green Initiative Award from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts State Senate, Massachusetts House of Representatives and Newton Needham Regional Chamber for its Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified development project at the Needham Street Village Shops located at 55 Needham St.

The Green Initiative Award described by the Newton Needham Regional Chamber “considers waste prevention, recycling, purchases, energy and water conservation, stakeholder involvement, transportation and social capital in the decision-making process and inspires others to embrace best practices and reduce carbon footprint.” These buildings are a leading example of sustainable design, consuming less water and energy, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. 

Bierbrier Development pioneered the LEED application in the shopping center industry when it influenced the development of regulations for core and shell LEED awards, resulting in Arlington Village Shops receiving the second Silver Award nationally in June 2011. Arlington Village Shops is one of the first core and shell LEED-certified buildings in Massachusetts.
