Visually Stunning and Eco-Friendly

The Global Hub is not only a visually stunning example of architecture influenced by its surroundings — its curved interior and exterior walls mirror its lakefront setting. It is also eco-friendly.

When the sun’s rays are not pouring through its numerous triple-glazed exterior windows, the building features 6,000 LED lights to illuminate its spaces. Under the football field next to the Global Hub lies a geothermal area providing 60 to 70 percent of the energy necessary to heat and cool the building. Other features including automated window shades, low-flow plumbing fixtures to conserve water, and a groundwater reservoir for landscape irrigation all contribute to the building being on track to attain gold LEED certification.
