SUNRISE, FL-Lake Shore Plaza II now has the distinction of being Broward County’s first “green” multitenant office building, having been formally awarded LEED Silver certification by the US Green Building Council. The 130,000-square-foot building opened last summer in Sawgrass International Corporate Park, near Sawgrass Expressway and Interstates 75 and 595.

GlobeSt.com reported that New York Life signed on last month as the class A building’s signature tenant, taking 28,230 square feet for 10 years and citing its “green” status as key to the decision. Other notable tenants at Lake Shore Plaza II include T-Mobile and the Florida Bar.

Lake Shore Plaza II is a joint venture of Fort Lauderdale-based Stiles Corp. and WLD Enterprises. The building incorporates energy-efficient and environmentally friendly features such as exposure to natural sunlight, sophisticated air-conditioning and indoor air quality systems, and water-conserving plumbing and fixtures.

During construction, Stiles recycled building materials, used wood from certified sustainable forests and sealed the building’s ventilation system against dust. In addition, Stiles Property Management uses only green cleaning products and pesticides in maintaining Lake Shore Plaza II.

“Stiles has made a corporate commitment to be a leader in designing, developing, constructing and managing ‘green’ office buildings,” Terry Stiles, chairman of Stiles Corp., stated in a release. “In fact, going green is now embedded in every aspect of our corporate culture.”
