Time Warner Cable will attempt meet environmental standards with its new regional headquarters in Morrisville's Perimeter Park. The developer, Duke Realty Corp., said that the 160,000-square-foot, Class A office building will be built to meet Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design standards developed by the U.S. Green Building Council. Duke and Time Warner will shoot for "silver" certification under the LEED program, the second highest of the system's four levels. Architecture firm Giffels designed the building. Construction is expected to end by April 2009.
Time Warner Cable announced in December 2007 that it would be building a new regional headquarters in Perimeter Park, directly across from the headquarters of computer maker Lenovo.
In November 2001, Time Warner began the cleanup and restoration of the former train station building that had turned into a brownfield site. An historic limestone structure dating to 1937 still stands on the property, which Time Warner Cable owns. Brownfields are abandoned or underused properties where real or perceived environmental contamination hinders the potential for redevelopment. A groundwater monitoring program included installation of six new groundwater wells. The total cost to Time Warner was more than $1 million.
