It’s a rare thing when an old building of character is sitting on enough land that one can do the expansion and adaptive reuse of that building and then add other structures to really create a campus.
Before the building was finished, the project was awarded a sustainability award. The AIA chapter here in Dallas has a design awards program annually, and they started a new award called the sustainability award to really award a project that could hold up as an example of building green or building thoughtfully in this growing movement of sustainable development. They selected Old Parkland and said, first of all, the greenest building is one that was already here, so here\'s somebody who’s been a good steward of an existing building, and the design work that was done was admirable.
