Ground Breaking for First LEED Certified Building in Woodridge


On Monday, June 20, 2016, Village officials, representatives from Lakeview Realty Investors, SKJN Architects, and Krusinski Construction Company broke ground in the Wood Hill Crossing Northeast Addition Business Park for a 84,678 square foot building (located at the southwest corner of Katherine’s Crossing and Davey Road). The building will be the first LEED certified building in Woodridge, and the project is one of four Woodridge office warehouse developments that will start construction this summer – representing construction of nearly 500,000 square feet.

“This project can serve as a model for how buildings built with the environment in mind can meet the needs of our office/warehouse users,” said Mayor Gina Cunningham at the groundbreaking. “Once constructed, Woodridge will have over 13 million square feet of office warehouse space.”
The LEED certification process is designed to inspire project teams to seek innovative solutions that are better for the environment and communities. Specifically, this building will have shaded constructed surfaces on the site, increased landscaping, and will utilize high-reflectance materials for paved surfaces to reduce heat absorption. The site will be designed for the use of native species in landscaping which will require less water and herbicides to maintain. In addition, the building will use a highly efficient irrigation system that will reduce water consumption.

The additional projects making up the remaining portion of the 500,000 square feet of construction include a 151,122 square foot speculative building in the final phase of the Park 355 Business Park, a 145,200 square foot corporate headquarters for AMS Mechanical in the Union Pointe Business Park, and a 41,900 square foot speculative building also located on Katherine’s Crossing, immediately south of the Wood Hill Crossing project.
