At six-stories tall, the 50,000 square-foot Bullitt Center in Seattle, Washington aims to be the greenest and most energy efficient commercial building in the world.

With a goal of changing the way buildings are designed, the Bullitt Center seeks to improve long-term environmental performance and promote broader implementation of energy efficiency and resource management, raising the bar for renewable energy and other green building technologies in the Northwest.

A solar array on the buildings roof will generate as much electricity as it uses, while rain-catchment systems will provide fresh water with all waste water treated onsite. Fresh air and ample sunlight exposure will create a pleasant, healthy and more productive human environment than most commercial buildings.
