Fantastic achievement by the Crown Estate; as part of it's Regent Street portfolio, the first ever Grade 2-listed building has achieved BREEAM 2011 Outstanding rating and is the highest-scoring office scheme against current BREEAM standards.

7 Air Street is connected to a unique central energy centre powered by fuel-cell technology, which saves more than 350 tonnes of carbon emissions each year while providing power to 500,000sq.ft of commercial and residential accommodation along Regent Street. 

Low-energy air conditioning, LED lighting and 23kW rooftop solar panels add to the scheme’s energy efficiency initiatives, while and a highly-effective building envelope drastically reduces its heating and cooling requirements.
