What are the sustainability goals for the project?

A sustainability goal of Net Zero or Net Zero Ready is being planned. Mechanical systems designed for the new station are being evaluated in order to assess initial and life-cycle costs and sustainability. The design team plans to use the latest proven technology where available, in order to achieve energy efficiency and the use of “green” energy sources, where feasible. The design provides that the heat/light/power needs for approximately  93% of the square footage of the Building will be provided  by electricity that will be generated by renewable energy sources. The current plans also provide that large areas on the roof and parking deck will be built to be “solar ready”  for the subsequent installation of a large array of solar panels.
