The Alliance Center (built in 1908) provides below-market rent and operational support to over 35 nonprofit organizations all focused on some aspect of sustainability policies and practices. The Alliance Center is a hub of collaboration, enabling all of its tenants and partners to be more effective in their missions.
As the first historic building in the world to earn two LEED certifications (Existing Buildings Gold and Commercial Interiors Silver) the Alliance Center vividly demonstrates the ease and savings of installing resource efficient features such as low flow toilets, occupancy sensors and renewable materials. Drawing over 1,000 people a year for tours, the Alliance Center inspires adoption of resource efficient measures in businesses and homes.
The Alliance Center was conceived to:
- Create a gathering place for leaders in sustainability from across the state
- Provide a showcase of green construction in a rehabilitated historic building
- Help organizations achieve greater efficiencies by providing stable, healthy, financially favorable, and secure office space
- Improve communications and opportunities for collaboration
