TD Bank Tower achieves LEED gold certification
July 22, 2013 by STAFF REPORT
The Cadillac Fairview Corporation Ltd. announced that its Toronto-Dominion (TD) Bank Tower has received a LEED gold certification from the Canada Green Building Council.
Located in downtown Toronto at 66 Wellington St. W., the tower joins a trio of LEED certified buildings at the TD Centre complex, including one platinum building at 100 Wellington St. W. and a pair of gold buildings located at 77 King St. W. and 79 Wellington St. W.
The TD Centre boasts accessibility to the King Street streetcar line and St. Andrew and Union Subway Stations; bike racks for more than 400 bicycles; more than $250,000 worth in upgrades (faucets, toilets and urinals) to reduce water use by up to 30 per cent; smoking is prohibited within 25 ft. of any building entrance or air intake; and at least 75 per cent of the building’s general waste—and at least 70 per cent of construction waste— is diverted from landfills.
For its sustainability efforts, the centre received the Green Award of the Year at the 12th Annual Real Estate Excellence Awards Gala—the first time the award was given to an existing building.
“For its part, TD Centre continues to exceed environmental and operational objectives that benefit our clients, our community and ultimately, our planet,” said David Hoffman, general manager at TD Centre.
