Currently seeking LEED Neighborhood Development certification, Piazza Alta would be a pioneer in Northern Liberties for earning this distinction. Piazza Alta saves approximately 25% of energy costs by combining the use of LED lights, Energy Star Appliances, energy recovery systems and high efficiency windows to protect the interior from extreme temperature swings. Highly reflective roof materials reduce the heat island effect that burdens urban areas. Throughout development, the property has recycled 89.4% of construction waste, diverting 3,750 tons of waste from landfills. A sophisticated storm water management system, using a 520,800-gallon underground water basin, and 38,000 square foot shared rooftop terrace help capture nearly 97% of rainfall and reduce water runoff into the sewer system. No turn was left unturned, helping Piazza Alta achieve the highest standard in sustainability.
