Baristaville is Lean, Mean — and Green

Baristaville is on the cutting edge of many things, not least of them its green building practices.

“It is a particularly green area,” said Fred R. Profeta, Jr., Maplewood’s Deputy Mayor for the Environment and one of the founders of Sustainable Jersey, a green certification program for communities.

Maplewood’s Police Station, completed in 2008, was New Jersey’s first LEED®-certified municipal building (LEED® is the nation’s preeminent program for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings).
