Overview: The Collection at RiverPark

Here you'll find your favorite stores, entertainment, and dining options, as well as unique sculptures and artwork with a coastal theme. Built in 2012, The Collection also features electric vehicle charging stations and has a LEED certification for energy use, lighting, water, and material use. The developer's goal was to gain the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Certificate for 80 percent of the center.

Here's how they did it:

  • 10 percent of the materials came from local recycled materials
  • recycled 75 percent of waste
  • planted over 1,000 trees, energy and water-efficient systems, and other green initiatives
