NU-Seattle Satellite Campus On Track For LEED Platinum
Earth Techling - 03/12/2013
A new extension campus for Boston-based Northeastern University recently made a 3,000-mile journey to the Pacific Northwest to set up a new campus in Seattle. To fit in with the Emerald City vibe, the Northeastern University—Seattle campus is suitably green, with an eye on capturing a coveted LEED Platinum designation from the U.S. Green Building Council.
Designed by the Seattle office of design firm Perkins+Will, the extension “jewel box” campus is located in the rapidly developing South Lake Union neighborhood, where tech firms such as Amazon and Microsoft have also built new modern office space nearby. Northeastern—Seattle’s new campus will tap into the region’s brain trust, offering hybrid graduate degree offerings with local access to classroom courses.
