This 111,470 sf project is a multi-functional warehouse, cold storage, and distribution center for Whole Foods.
To accomplish this, RPA incorporated green ideas within the designs to help make the building environmentally responsible. These features include solar panels, a rain-cistern to allow the reuse of water for all the water features found within the building, green spaces with benches and paths, 85% post-consumer content carpet and tiles, and FSC labeled sustainable wood flooring.
Along with storage facilities for Whole Foods’ cold products, the building includes shipping docks, office spaces, reception area, conference room, locker and break rooms and separate work stations. The interior portion of the office section uses sustainable wood and a water feature with Whole Foods imagery to create an upscale, contemporary feel. Architectural metal canopies and rain chains are found around the exterior of the building along with a grill area and patio.
