The Queens Botanical Garden Visitor & Administration Center officially received its LEED Platinum rating today from USGBC. The Visitor’s Center is the first building in New York City to earn Platinum under LEED for New Construction and features a number of innovative green design features, which we’ve profiled here at gbNYC previously.
The 16,000-square-foot Center opened to the public back in September (so note the lag time between application and final certification from USGBC) and was designed by New York City-based BKSK Architects.
