One of the primary reasons Healthfirst chose this space is for its air and light; there are windows on all four sides and much of the space is day-lit. It was also important to both Healthfirst and TPG to obtain LEED Gold certification; as a company invested in issues of both individual and public health, Healthfirst's commit- ment to environmentally responsible design and creat- ing a healthy work environment was a priority. •for full story visit nyrej.com•
