Chicago, IL Green Office Space

Employment

Of the Top 30 Green Office Markets in the U.S., Chicago ranks #1 for energy efficient buildings. While just over 6% of the office buildings larger than 50,000 square feet are LEED-certified, over 16% rank as Energy Star Certified and over 18% are recognized as green buildings.

The Merchandise Mart is a stunning example of a LEED Gold-certified building: with over 3.5 million square feet of space, this Class A building was constructed in 1930 and has been updated to today's green energy standards. As tenants, along with national and global investors seek out green certified assets for both their use and portfolios, the green office trend will continue to grow in the city.

The 2017 National Green Building Adoption Index looked at commercial properties in 30 major U.S. markets and found that, including EPA Energy Star-labeled buildings, the percentage of green certification has increased from under 5% in 2005 to 38% as of mid-2017. Chicago has placed 1st in this survey.
