Timberland opened up a 2000-square-foot retail store at 474 Broadway (between Grand and Broome Streets) in SoHo back on February 13. The space’s build-out incorporated a variety of green design features that reflect the company’s commitment to sustainability; it has implemented a long-term corporate strategy which, in part, aims to make the company carbon neutral by 2010.
The new store at 474 Broadway includes efficient lighting, reclaimed wood, and low-VOC paints and sealants; brick and other structural interior components were salvaged and recycled into the new design. 474 Broadway itself dates from 1860; no other details about the project team or whether the space is seeking a LEED-CI rating appear available.
Timberland is celebrating the opening of its new store by featuring an original exhibit of photography that is being curated by Brooklyn-based publisher powerHouse Books. The exhibit will run from March 27 through April 29 and highlight images of New York City’s five boroughs. Note that this is the second retailer to publicize a recent green retail build out in SoHo; you’ll recall that Lululemon Athletica, the Vancouver-based activewear retailer, opened a Kenneth Park Architect-designed outlet at 481 Broadway.
