Green building continues to soar to new heights @USGBC

The Aon Center was awarded LEED Silver certification in 2014 for LEED Operations and Maintenance: Existing Buildings. Built in 1974, the historic Aon Center was once the tallest marble building in the world. Currently the third tallest building in Chicago and the fifth tallest in the U.S., the Aon Center is a 3.2 million square feet tower owned and managed by Jones Lang LaSalle. Green building practices include the Tenants Go Green partnership that JLL established , where building owners, management staff and tenants work together to incorporate best practices, promote sustainability and incorporate energy efficiency initiatives. The partnership helped Aon Center win an ENERGY STAR score of 81, ranking it in the top 20% of similar buildings for energy efficiency nationwide.
