Going Green

Our grass and trees aren’t the only “green” you’ll find at Watters Creek.

Defined by its conservation-focused designs and wide-open spaces, Watters Creek has worked hard to be eco-friendly. In fact, Watters Creek is the first retail development in the State of Texas to be LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified by the U.S. Green Building Council.

When visiting Watters Creek you’ll see earth-friendly measures in action such as the recycling provided for all our stores and restaurants, as well as shoppers with their reusable bags.

But you may not know about our other sustainable efforts. At Watters Creek, we are:
  • Saving space – We made smart use of our land resources through a high-density design – we built “up,” not “out,” and that includes our buildings and parking garages.
  • Saving water – We use well water for our pond, creek and irrigation; we even have water-efficient plumbing fixtures that will save an estimated 1,000 gallons of water a day.
  • Saving energy – We increased wall and ceiling insulation and used reflective rooftop materials. Over a year’s time we save enough energy to power 30 homes for that same length of time.
  • Saving trees – We brought in more than 500 trees, including more than two dozen mature trees saved from other local projects; we are also proud of our 150-year-old pecan tree near the pond, certified as a historical tree by the City of Allen.
  • Saving resources – We love to recycle! In addition to our on-site recycling programs, we use recycled materials for construction and beyond – we even use recycled carpet which gets recycled again when we’re done with it!
  • “Signing up” – You can learn more about our environmental efforts from a series of small signs placed throughout the property. For instance, did you know Watters Creek uses air conditioners that are friendly to the ozone?
You can help by:
