ABCL started its journey in the commercial real estate sector with Citizen Tower. We have been fortunate to be associated with the Citizen group for this iconic building. We are keen on investing and developing sites and schemes across Bangladesh to unlock potential and create spaces for the opportunity.
With a development pipeline with Citizen Group, ABCL has established itself as a leading partner with an ability to expand ahead of the competition; building volume and securing sites in key regional locations. Through our partnership, we continue to positively increase investment in the industrial market to the highest specification.
We are proud to make known that Citizen Tower has achieved LEED Gold certification. LEED is the acronym that is short for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. The LEED certification program assesses building design and construction in terms of energy efficiency, water usage, air quality, and choice of building materials as well as environmental factors such as access to public transportation and responsible land use. The LEED program is sponsored by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC) to set a benchmark for the design, construction, maintenance, and operation of high-performance green buildings and homes.
By promoting a whole-building approach to sustainability, LEED recognizes achievements in location and planning, sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection, waste reduction, indoor environmental quality, innovative strategies, and attention to priority regional issues. The LEED certification program is the leading international program for sustainable building design and construction. Attaining LEED certification demonstrates environmentally responsible building practices. By being LEED Gold Certified, Citizen Tower will create a healthier, more sustainable future.
We have an ambitious development program across Bangladesh to deliver mixed-use urban regeneration, last-mile logistics, and modern sustainable office developments. We can provide clients with fully integrated end-to-end solutions, first acting as promoter and developer, and then as equity investor and facilities or asset manager.
Much of our focus support new infrastructure projects in the public sector. This has enabled us to move into new markets with our urban regeneration team, offering a range of solutions and focussing on large-scale regeneration master plans.
As we continue to develop opportunities together, we are creating new communities and jobs for the future.
