Brooks Sports 'Deep Green' Building Moves Ahead

Brooks Sports’ proposed “deep green” Seattle headquarters received Seattle City Council Land Use Committee approval for an extra 20 feet of height in return for the project’s environment-friendly design.  The developer, Skansa, says the extra height is needed to make the building economically viable.  Skanska is seeking approval for the controversial five-story building under a city pilot program that encourages “Living Buildings.”
