First Hotel in Wisconsin to Attain LEED Gold®

First Hotel in Wisconsin to Attain LEED Gold®
April 2015

Potawatomi Hotel & Casino attained LEED® Gold certification, making it the first casino hotel in Wisconsin to attain the green building honor. The LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) rating system was developed by the U.S. Green Building Council, which ranks buildings on how well they save energy and water, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, improve indoor environmental quality and their overall environmental impact.

From the time ground was broken, priority was placed on sustainability efforts. Through numerous green initiatives, the property’s goal was to become one of the premier sustainable developments in Milwaukee.

Set in the heart of Milwaukee, Potawatomi Hotel & Casino is Wisconsin’s premier entertainment destination, offering guests the best in gaming, dining and entertainment. The property features a luxurious 381-room hotel, the intimate 500-seat Northern Lights Theater and more than 60,000 square feet of event space.
