Built in 2007 and renovated in 2012, Easterly Government Properties has acquired the 169,585-square foot Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Regional Headquarters in Lenexa, Kansas (“EPA – Lenexa”).
EPA – Lenexa is a single tenant GSA-leased office building which serves as the Region 7 – EPA headquarters. Region 7 is responsible for leading the agency’s efforts in four states, including Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa and Missouri, as well as nine Tribal Nations.
The two-level office building, situated on a 30.5-acre parcel of land, received U.S. Green Building Council’s (USGBC) LEED® Gold for New Construction (version 2009) certification in April 2014 and the LEED Platinum for Existing Buildings (version 2009) certification in February 2015. The Region 7 Office building was also awarded the ENERGY STAR® in 2014 and in 2016 with a score of 94. This modern facility is 100% occupied by the EPA under its original 15-year lease, which has a five-year renewal option, thus potentially carrying the term through October 2032.
