Developed by S.J. Collins Enterprises (SJCollinsEnt.com), a commercial real estate development firm, the Whole Foods Market at Peachtree Crossing has achieved a Green Globes® rating by the Green Building Initiative™.
The team, including Phillips Architects + Engineers, practiced an integrated design process by involving key design professionals from the start. The design took measures to reduce the ecological impacts, including the use of efficient irrigation strategies. Local species of trees, shrubs and other drought-tolerant plants were introduced to conserve water consumption, and green walls were installed to keep the exterior walls at an optimum temperature.
