As part of Arizona State University’s commitment to reduce its environmental impact and mitigate climate change, the 777 Tower at Novus Innovation Corridor achieved LEED Gold level certification. Completed in the third phase of the 20-year master redevelopment plan for the NOVUS Innovation Corridor, 777 Tower is built 1.4 acres and encompasses 160,907 SF of Class A offices as well as 8,316 SF of retail space. Sustainability is an important pillar of Novus and was embraced by the 777 Tower utilizing USGBC’s LEED rating system to guide design, support construction and drive building operations. Sustainable practices include reduced energy use through improvement of the building envelope, attention to occupant health and comfort, and the use of low-flow fixtures and regional/recycled materials.
