Henderson 688 Plaza received LEED, Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, Gold Certification. LEED, operated by the US Green Building Council, is a green building certification program that recognizes best-in-class building strategies and practices.
The 24-story office building, completed in May, is a new landmark on West Nanjing Road, one of the most historical and busiest streets in Shanghai. The facade is carefully designed so that the light reflection from the building surface does not adversely affect the residents and visitors in the surrounding residential area. Although the building is massive, the façade design makes it appear slim and elegant.
