Cleveland, OH Green Office Space


Euclid Avenue is Cleveland's top green building corridor, known not just for energy efficient office space in the area but for the greener transportation projects such as the rapid transit line and the city's first bike lanes. This area currently has 15 LEED-certified buildings totaling nearly 1.7 million square feet.

But the largest concentration of LEED-certified office buildings in Cleveland is in the Downtown Cleveland commercial real estate submarket, just west of Cleveland State University and near the Lake Erie waterfront. Originally built in 1972, the 576,000-square- foot 1100 Superior office building holds a LEED Silver certification and is an excellent example of a Class A green office building in Cleveland.

Energy-efficient, green office buildings are increasingly in demand from both tenants and office property investors. The 2017 National Green Building Adoption Index reviewed 30 major office markets in the U.S. The number of LEED-certified, Energy Star-certified, and green buildings has increased by over 33% since 2005. While Cleveland isn't among the 30 U.S. office markets surveyed for the index, its commitment to developing green office buildings is strong.
