Vestar has always been committed to the communities in which it operates and Vestar’s proprietary GreenSTAR program is our vow to sustainable development and operation for millions of square feet of retail space.
Vestar’s GreenSTAR marks the Southwest’s first large-scale commitment to sustainable shopping center building techniques with the goal to achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) certification. Since new development is at the core of what we do, we feel an obligation to embrace the advancements in green building materials and systems and develop as responsibly as possible.
Vestar’s Oro Valley Marketplace earned Silver LEED certification marking the first retail project in the state to earn the designation, and one of the first in the Southwest. This national recognition is a marquee success of Vestar’s GreenStar initiative, one of the largest and most aggressive environmental commitments from any of the United States’ major retail owners.
