Astellas' New Headquarters For The Americas Awarded LEED Gold Certification

"It was a pleasure to work with Astellas through the LEED certification process," said Natalie Stanley, Director of Sustainability at MB Real Estate. "We share a common vision of bettering the world for future generations by making significant improvements to the efficiency of properties and reducing our overall carbon footprint."

Opened in June 2012, the complex accommodates more than 1,000 employees, with ample space to build a future third building to accommodate the company's projected growth. The complex includes two six-story buildings totaling 425,000 square feet and cost approximately $150 million to build.  

The new Astellas Headquarters for the Americas project has been well-recognized throughout the real estate community and has received numerous awards including Office Development of the Year 2011 for the National Association of Industrial and Office Properties (NAIOP), Build-to-Suit of the Year 2011 for the Greater Chicago Food Depository's Annual Commercial Real Estate Awards. Most recently, the development was honored with the Merit Award for New Construction in the Suburbs by the Chicago Building Congress and 2012 AIA Chicago Design Excellence Award for Interior Architecture.
