Commitment to Sustainability

In its commitment to sustainability and ensuring its buildings serve as role models for environmental development, Building and Land Technology seeks to incorporate innovative technologies for building efficiencies and emission reductions. Through signature developments, such as the $3.5 billion Harbor Point redevelopment project, which encompasses more than 100 acres along Long Island Sound, BLT has been recognized for its positive contributions to the community in terms of LEED-ND Gold certification, bringing a transit-oriented approach to development, as well as for its public parks and efforts to make waterfront areas accessible to the public. In 2008, BLT initiated one of Connecticut’s largest environmental cleanups successfully remediating more than 60 acres of contaminated brownfield sites. Today, that area has been transformed into a thriving community that has attracted thousands of residents, quality retailers, restaurants and visitors to hundreds of community events.
