Liberty Property Trust officially operates a 80,000 square foot building and the company has recently moved its Jacksonville headquarters to the brand new state-of-the-art building. Liberty built-out its corporate office space to meet the U.S. Green Building Council's LEED Gold CI (Commercial Interiors) certification.

Liberty has registered the building with the USGBC for LEED Silver certification (official certification is expected any time) marking the company's second sustainable development project in Jacksonville.

Butler Plaza III is constructed of exterior concrete and glass, and features an impressive architectural design of interior granite, limestone and terrazzo. The construction consists of recycled materials which include the concrete, steel, carpet, ceiling tiles and similar materials. In addition, the paint, glues and adhesives are all free of toxic materials.

The building's numerous environmentally sensitive and high-performance features include enhanced daylight views, use of certified renewable woods, waterless urinals, low-flow shower heads and sensor faucets, high energy-efficient HVAC equipment with special filters and carbon dioxide monitors, and a highly reflective TPO roof membrane.

The building has a designated recycling area, showers, bicycle racks and preferred parking spaces for hybrid vehicles. The maintenance of the building is supported by a cleaning green program that includes environmentally-friendly cleaning agents. In addition, native plants and trees that require little or no irrigation were used for attractive landscaping.

Conveniently located on the corner of J. Turner Butler Boulevard and Belfort Road, Butler Plaza is a master planned park featuring 240,000 total square feet of innovative contemporary design and top quality construction. The park offers complete accessibility to numerous major crossroads, immediate access to I-95, and is within close proximity to numerous restaurants, hotels, banks and shopping venues.

As a leader in LEED development in Jacksonville, Liberty was asked to host a kick-off event on September 26th at Butler Plaza III for BOMA (Building Owners and Managers Association) and its 7-Point Challenge. This challenge is designed for developers to "improve energy efficiency by 30% by the year 2012 by using low or no cost strategies." Liberty is endorsing the BOMA 7-Point Challenge in every city where BOMA exists and Liberty owns and manages property.

Butler Plaza III marks the third and final development in Butler Plaza, and the company's sixth sustainable building to open in the state.
