MEMPHIS, TENN. — The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) has awarded One Commerce Square in downtown Memphis LEED Gold certification. The office building is the first property in downtown Memphis to earn the distinction. Built in 1972, the 29-story office building is located at 40 S. Main St. Memphis-based Looney Ricks Kiss spearheaded the renovation, which resulted in 45 percent in energy savings, or roughly $138,000 per year. The office building has also experienced 33 percent water savings over the LEED baseline and features a 20 percent parking rebate offered to building patrons who have a qualified low-emitting or fuel-efficient vehicle. Cushman & Wakefield | Commercial Advisors leases and manages the building. Memphis Commerce Square Partners LLC, which is managed by Worthington Hyde Partners, owns the office tower.
