Millcraft is a Western Pennsylvania real estate developer investing in the future of the region. Through diligent methods of private and public funding, Millcraft strives to ensure each project is a success from investment to development.
Millcraft thrives on the vision of being a leader of sustainable development in the region. Sustainability stars as one of Millcraft’s founding principles and is something they strive for with each project. Thanks to Millcraft’s dedication to sustainability, many of their properties are LEED certified including Market Square Place (LEED Gold), River Vue (an adaptive reuse project awaiting LEED certification), and Crossroads Center in Washington, PA (LEED certified). “Millcraft is proud to be one of the local companies improving the place we call home,” says Lucas Piatt, President and COO.
Millcraft’s latest project included one of Pittsburgh’s newest skycrapers, Tower Two-Sixty. Tower Two-Sixty is a newly completed office tower in Market Square, offering seven floors of Class A office space and an integral parking garage. This LEED Certified Silver building is the first opportunity in almost 30 years for distinguished Pittsburgh businesses to take up residence in a brand new trophy building. Partnering with JLL as the anchor tenant and property manager, other tenants include Coury Financial, Merrill-Lynch, and Millcraft.
But, what is LEED certification?
LEED works for all buildings—from homes to corporate headquarters—at all phases of development. Projects pursuing LEED certification earn points across several areas that address sustainability issues. Based on the number of points achieved, a project then receives one of four LEED rating levels: Certified, Silver, Gold and Platinum.
LEED-certified buildings are resource efficient. They use less water and energy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. As an added bonus, they save money.
