The Former Microsemi building on Morse Avenue in Irvine, adjacent to the 405 Freeway was taken to the ground this week. Microsemi is now headquartered in Aliso Viejo, Calif., and has approximately 3,000 employees globally.
The demolished site encompassing 2381 and 2391 Morse Avenue is slated to be a Hilton Garden Inn Hotel. The proposed hotel will be a 5 story building with 156 rooms and is registered for LEED certification. Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is a suite of rating systems for the design, construction, operation, and maintenance of green buildings, homes and neighborhoods.
LEED certified buildings are intended to use resources more efficiently when compared to conventional buildings simply built to code. LEED certified buildings often provide healthier work and living environments, which contributes to higher productivity and improved employee health and comfort. The USGBC has compiled a long list of benefits of implementing a LEED strategy, which ranges from improving air and water quality to reducing solid waste, benefiting owners, occupiers, and society as a whole.
