Green is the new black at the Palm Beach Outlets Mall

Attention local shoppers: Not only is the highly anticipated Palm Beach Outlets Mall scheduled to open on Valentine’s Day 2014, but it will do so boasting several eco-friendly features.

These will include:

*Stylishly designed stores and restaurants constructed with recycled materials, asphalt and concrete;

*A bright parking lot that uses LED lights;

*A special water filtration system beneath the mall so that runoff water gets cleaned before going into an aquifer; and

*Replanted trees from the original property that were stored on a tree farm for irrigation and maintenance for the past year.

“All these things help to reduce greenhouse gases and lower the impact on global climate change,” said Penni Redford, City of West Palm Beach sustainability manager in a recent interview with WPEC-TV CBS 12 News.

“To have these beautiful trees in a retail environment is fairly rare,” added landscape architect Nick Mihelich. “[These are] big, giant trees you can park under and receive that shade.”

Located on Palm Beach Lakes Boulevard just northeast of the I-95 exit, the shopping complex will include a Whole Foods and Nordstrom Rack, as well as BJ’s Brewhouse and Red Robin Gourmet Burgers restaurants.

With this blend of style and sustainability, the Palm Beach Outlets Mall promises to be a major asset to the local economy – and the local environment.
