HLW’s Interior Architecture for Panasonic Corporation of North America Achieves LEED Platinum

Panasonic Corporation of North America announced this month that its headquarters at Two Riverfront Plaza, a state-of-the-art, 340,000 sf, 12-story Class A office tower, was awarded the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum Certification for Commercial Interiors by the U.S. Green Building Council. Panasonic’s headquarters building was jointly developed by SJP Properties and Matrix Development Group. HLW designed the interior architecture. The facility is the first new office tower in Newark to receive both LEED Platinum and Gold environmental certifications.

“Sustainability and community outreach can be two sides of the same coin,” said Susan Kaplan, HLW’s Director of Sustainability. “The decision to relocate to a growing urban environment with access to public transportation was transformative for Panasonic employees and for the surrounding community. We saw the company’s commitment to environmental stewardship in their involvement and collaboration with neighbors during the design and construction phases. Achieving LEED Platinum complements these positive initiatives.”
