Nike’s DC Store Achieves LEED Platinum

Nike has a well-deserved reputation for being a leader and its retail outlet in Washington, DC’s Ivy City neighborhood is a great reflection of forward thinking. We share Nike’s commitment to drive social equity, which made working on this project so rewarding for GBS. The fourth Nike Community Store in the nation, the retail outlet attempts to glean employees from within a five-mile radius and effect positive change in the lives of kids and the neighborhood at large. Here are a few of the LEED Platinum store’s green features:


– Development density and community connectivity
– More than 40% savings from water efficiency measures
– Exemplary energy performance with 97% Energy Star equipment
– Enhanced commissioning
– Measurement and verification
