Pabst brewery projects gets LEED certification
The Brewery Project LLC, Zilber Ltd. founder Joe Zilber‘s mixed-use redevelopment of the former Pabst brewery in downtown Milwaukee, was notified by the U.S. Green Building Council that it has received pre-approval of platinum certification for LEED for Neighborhood Development, a new rating system designed to recognize large environmentally sustainable developments. The Brewery project includes a sophisticated storm water system with bioswales that capture roof top drainage and storm water runoff from the street system, water management containment areas and permeable pavement to allow water to go into the store water management system. “We are on track to receive the highest certification available under the new LEED for Neighborhood Development Program,” said Brewery president John Kersey. “When Mr. Zilber bought the old Pabst brewery, he made a number of commitments to the city of Milwaukee and its citizens, not only to reestablish a great neighborhood in which to work, live and play, but to set the bar as high as possible for historic and sustainable development.”
