Given the warm reception SERF has received and our growing operations here, it comes as no surprise to us that Chicago recently won the Siemens and U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Sustainability Large Community award. Leaders from business, real estate and, not least, the City government are clearly unified in making Chicago a global leader in sustainability.
There’s a beautiful symmetry in Chicago’s leadership in sustainable buildings given its preeminent role in the creation of an American architectural style and its endless contributions to the world’s built environment ever since.
How fitting, then, that Chicago’s Soldier Field is now the first NFL stadium to have attained LEED status. Now that’s putting your money where your mouth is.
