Nashville Mayor Karl Dean today toured Terrazzo’s green features and presented the US Green Building Council’s LEED Silver certification building marker to the development team. He praised Terrazzo’s achievement as the first LEED certified high-rise in downtown Nashville and the largest LEED certified mixed-use residential high-rise in the Southeast.

Terrazzo incorporates a high level of regional and renewable material, and its floor-to-ceiling glass provides abundant natural light. Terrazzo’s other eco-friendly benefits include reduced water and energy consumption, better indoor air quality, and reduced ozone pollution and heat island effect.

LEED certified projects are internationally recognized for being environmentally responsible and healthy places to live and work.  View Terrazzo’s green features.
