  •  Unity at Ridgeway, a state-of-the-art medical building located at 2655 Ridgeway Avenue in Greece, received LEED® Silver certification from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). This makes the 120,000 square foot environmentally-friendly facility the first building to achieve this distinction in the Rochester-area, and one of only 11 LEED certified medical buildings in New York.
    Broadstone Real Estate, LLC. (Broadstone) developed and manages the building, and Unity is a major tenant.
    "We find that designing, constructing and managing environmentally-friendly buildings is both economically and personally rewarding," said Amy Tait, CEO of Broadstone.  "While energy savings are substantial, employees and visitors to Unity at Ridgeway also enjoy the benefits of improved air quality, comfort and health.  It's a win-win for both developers and tenants like Unity."
    “Going green is the right thing to do,” added Warren Hern, president/CEO of Unity Health System. “This is a significant accomplishment. We are making a difference in the health and environment of our patients, employees, and community.”  
    Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is an internationally recognized green building certification system developed by the USGBC. It provides verification that a building is designed and built to improve: energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, and indoor environmental quality.
