• 2012

The third phase of Phipps' master plan for expansion, the Center for Sustainable Landscapes (CSL), a facility for education, research and administration, opened in December 2012. Designed to be the greenest building in the world, the Center for Sustainable Landscapes (CSL) generates all of its own energy and treats all storm and sanitary water captured on-site. An integral part of the Phipps visitor experience, it is the first and only building to meet four of the highest green certifications: the Living Building Challenge, LEED Platinum, WELL Building Platinum, and Four-Stars Sustainable SITES.
