Description

Join us for a tour of Sylvan Thirty, a mixed-use development located at the intersection of Sylvan and Fort Worth Avenues. Sylvan Thirty has become the first commercial development in West Dallas to earn the U.S. Green Building Council’s coveted LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Certification that recognizes buildings, homes and communities that are designed and operated for improved environmental and human health performance.

Sylvan Thirty has achieved LEED certification for implementing practical and measurable strategies and solutions aimed at achieving high performance in: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality. Sylvan | Thirty has been especially recognized for rehabilitating a “brownfield site,” incorporating decomposed granite parking and a vegetated bioswale throughout the development to filter and reduce stormwater discharge in an effort to keep the Trinity River healthy, providing preferred parking for fuel-efficient vehicles and the use of low-emitting building materials to reduce indoor air contaminants that are harmful to occupants.
