Green initiatives at the venue

  • InterContinental Los Angeles Downtown is registered with the LEED® Gold for Building Design and Construction certification.
  • Every aspect of the building was designed with the goal of decreasing our footprint. Building orientation, daytime lighting, high-performance glazing, and thermal energy storage all reduce energy use.
  • Building materials are specified with recycled content and regional value. Adhesives, sealants, paints, coatings, flooring systems and composite wood products have all been specified as low VOC to ensure the comfort and well-being of all building occupants.
  • Water-efficient landscaping that uses drought-tolerant species, drip irrigation, and improved controller efficiency decreases water used for irrigation by 50 percent from the baseline. Other noteworthy reduction features include specified indoor plumbing fixtures that result in a 30 percent reduction in water use.
  • The hotel also collects storm water in a 50,000-gallon storage tank for reuse in the building’s cooling towers. This both relieves the burden of storm water quantity on the city’s infrastructure and reduces the amount of water used for make-up purposes.
  • Additionally, hotel guest room pods were fabricated off-site and installed as a single component. This efficient construction practice reduces the amount of materials used for construction as well as the amount of waste generated.
