This rare distinction proves our commitment to our partners and employees, as well as our dedication to overall wellness.” “This is a tremendous accomplishment,” said Rachel Hodgdon, President and CEO of the International WELL Building Institute. “I want to congratulate and thank Kimball International for their significant contributions toward better buildings, more vibrant communities, and stronger organizations.”

LEED Volume, LEED Certifications, Retail

In 2008, Starbucks made the commitment to build all new company owned stores worldwide to LEED certification standards by opting into the pilot versions of LEED for Retail (CI/NC) and Volume Build. As the program’s primary author, John Harrison led his internal team at Starbucks to build a unique LEED Volume certification system based on solutions to individual credit and prerequisite requirements. This approach allowed for certification of stores not based on an exact prototype. Using this method enabled international adaptations to documentation and processes, allowing Starbucks to have the maximum sustainable impact across its portfolio.


SIZE: 50 million+ SF globally, 30,000+ stores in over 75 countries, 1,600+ LEED certifications (2.9 million SF)



LOCATION: 22 countries/territories — Italy, Spain, Portugal, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Netherlands, United States, Canada, Mexico, Chile, Brazil, Puerto Rico, Philippines, Thailand, Singapore, South Korea, China, Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, India, All 50 U.S. States and the District of Columbia

John and his team at Starbucks provided technical support, quality control oversight and status tracking for the hundreds of individuals who designed, built and commissioned stores globally. John’s leadership, together with the contributions of thousands of design and construction industry professionals worldwide, have made the Starbucks LEED for Retail Volume Build program the most successful green building program of its kind in the world. As a result, millions of customers and Starbucks store partners experience a healthier and more inviting space every day, while the company and the global environment benefit from energy and water savings at unprecedented scales.

Every time you order a Starbucks, you cast a vote for the powerful impact the retail environment can have on our efforts to mitigate climate change and improve the quality of life for all of us.

Rick Redrizzi, Chairman, International WELL Building Institute (IWBI)

As the primary author of the Starbucks LEED for Retail Volume Build program, undoubtedly the most successful green building program of its kind in the world, John took an iconic brand and leveraged its recognition to certify over 1,600 stores in 22 countries/U.S. territories across 4 continents and in all 50 US states.

One Paseo

One Paseo

WELL Platinum

One Paseo is a deeper notion of mixed use. Centrally located in Del Mar, California, the campus offers 286,000 SF of Class-A office, including 96,000 SF of retail (over 40 shops).  The residential portion has 608 apartments in two buildings — one of which is six stories high and one that is four stories.  

Built on a 23-acre site, One Paseo is what Kilroy describes as a farmhouse style with pathways that meander through the project, linking the retail portion to the two office buildings and the apartments. 

Amenities in the residential area of One Paseo include a pool, a 6,000 square-foot, two-story fitness center, a lounge with booths for studying or working and a “collision space” where tenants can engage with one another and strike up conversations.

SIZE: ~1,100,000 SF  


MARKET SECTOR: Office, Mixed Use, Residential 

LOCATION: San Diego, CA, USA   

One Paseo is more than a convenient lifestyle. It is an attitude. A spirit of community that, even if you don’t live or work here, invites you to meet up, hang out and join in. From the moment you arrive and easily park your car, you know One Paseo is different. Everything about the place is just…easy. Laid back. User-friendly. Family-friendly. At One Paseo, you can come as you are. It’s stylish but not tragically hip. Cool, but in a warm, welcoming sort of way. And just being here makes a good day better.


The unique thing was we had approximately 60 people prelease with us without ever having seen the project. They basically did it off renderings. That was something I was pleasantly surprised with

Jay Rey-Hipolito, Kilroy Realty’s Vice President of Residential Development

Especially for companies that have high value employees; you want coffee, you want to go to a workout, you want to meet someone after work for dinner — it’s all right there

Allsteel Showroom- Boston

Allsteel Showroom- Boston


Allsteel Inc., a leading office furniture manufacturer, proudly announces that its Boston showroom at 200 State Street, Suite 400 has achieved WELL Certified™ Gold in the Retail Pilot Program. Designed by Charlie Greene Studio of Chicago, IL, the 12,420-square-foot showroom meets WELL performance standards in multiple categories.

The Boston showroom showcases a distinctive space, aligning their design impact with the local market in both literal and subtle ways. Views of Boston Harbor inspired design elements that evoke buoyancy, including clustered pendant lighting and ombre graphics. The finish selection and accessories reflect an East Coast sensibility with maritime-inspired details.

SIZE: 12,420 SF




Technology to support collaboration and knowledge sharing is integrated into the design, and applied WELL Building Standard recommendations such as designated eating areas, access to daylight, concrete floors and purposefully placed area rugs ensure the space supports human health and well-being.


The Allsteel Boston showroom is one of five spaces in Boston that has achieved WELL Gold certification

Allsteel Showroom – Los Angeles

Allsteel Showroom - Los Angeles


Allsteel’s new downtown Los Angeles Resource Center achieved WELL Certified™ Gold in the Retail Pilot Program. The 10,222 square foot showroom set goals to enhance indoor air quality; provide access to water, natural light, and healthy foods; promote fitness, comfort, and mindfulness; and serve as an example of design initiatives that can foster wellness. 

Designed for flexibility, the Los Angeles showroom features acoustical clouds and a power and data grid to support changing furniture and technology solutions. Wellness-focused elements include a calming materials palette and a high-performance all-day cafe. Ample access to daylight is accompanied by dramatic 34th-floor views of the hills and downtown Los Angeles.


SIZE: 10,222 SF  


SECTOR: Retail

PROJECT TYPE: Retail Pilot

LOCATION: Downtown Los Angeles, CA, USA 

Here is what they did:

  • Almost all of Allsteel’s products are Indoor Advantage Gold certified, including their Beyond glass and solid wall systems, which meets the VOC requirements for furniture in WELL.
  • Regular cleaning is performed in the space with green cleaners and equipment that meet WELL’s requirements to help maintain a clean indoor environment. By using green cleaners and equipment, we’re making sure we don’t introduce chemicals that could adversely impact our indoor air quality.
  • Nearly every spot in the showroom provides access to natural light and outdoor views. An open-plan space promotes access to natural light and helps show off the expansive views of downtown Los Angeles. Lower-height panels and glass walls in conference rooms were incorporated into the design to help ensure views were unobstructed.
  • The café area was designed to be an inviting location for people to come together and eat, gather for a meeting, or sit and enjoy the views of downtown LA.
  • The LA showroom is located in the City National Plaza, which has a Walk Score of 99 (out of 100), meaning that it is located in a “Walker’s Paradise,” and that daily errands from this spot do not require a car. It also has a Transit Score of 100, meaning that there are a variety of public transit options to support getting people to the space.
  • Three sides of the Allsteel showroom are exterior walls with large windows. The windows provide natural light, views of the outdoors, and additional warmth, when the sun is shining through.


Allsteel’s Los Angeles showroom was the first project in the world to achieve WELL Certified Gold in the Retail Pilot program. Efforts are currently underway for WELL certification of the Chicago showroom as Allsteel continues to support the health and wellbeing of its employees and customers
