Media Advisory - Ribbon Cutting Ceremony - Bay Adelaide Centre officially
opens its doors as a green 'LEED'er

    
    Built to a LEED Gold standard, Bay Adelaide Centre to be first of its
    kind in city's financial core
    

TORONTO, Sept. 14 /CNW/ - On Wednesday, September 16th, Brookfield Properties Corporation president and CEO Ric Clark and Toronto Mayor David Miller will host a ribbon cutting ceremony and officially open the doors to Bay Adelaide Centre, the first building in the city's financial district built to a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold standard.

In just three short years, the northeast corner of Bay Street and Adelaide Street has been transformed from a concrete slab known as The Stump, to a 51-storey, state-of-the-art, green office tower. Environmental initiatives include optimization of energy, light and water efficiency, and the use of local and recycled building materials.

The Bay Adelaide Centre is Toronto's first significant development in the city's financial district since the Brookfield Place (formerly BCE Place) was completed in 1992.

The ceremony will be attended by Bay Adelaide Centre tenants, the architecture and construction teams, as well as famed artist James Turrell who created the lobby's masterpiece.
