The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has awarded the Hartsfield Centre Office Building in Atlanta with a 2009 ENERGY STAR award in recognition of its commitment to protecting the environment through energy efficiency and management.
The Property and Facility Management group of Carter, one of the country’s leading full-service commercial real estate firms since 1958, continues to decrease energy consumption across its 25-million-square-foot portfolio, adding another ENERGY STAR rated building.
Hartsfield Centre is a 148,621 square-foot, Class A multi-tenant office building located in the Atlanta Airport submarket and was constructed in 1990. The 8-story building is anchored by the Air Line Pilots Association. Hartsfield Centre is the most recent multi-tenant office building in the airport submarket to receive the ENERGY STAR label.
The conversion of the Building Management System controls, use of occupancy sensors, and other energy conservation initiatives have contributed greatly to the building’s success in decreasing the overall energy consumption.

- 171 17th Street in Atlanta, a 23-story, 510,000-square-foot Class A office tower in the Atlantic Station mixed-use development.
