Excellence in Design

Several green buildings in the city have been LEED certified, recognizing construction that has reduced the impact on the environment.  The architectural list (below) will be updated as new buildings are constructed or if we receive suggestions for other architecturally significant properties. Use this architectural list for your own self-guided tour of interesting architecture in our city. Burlington also celebrates architecture during Doors Open Burlington where you can visit landmark buildings that are not normally open to the public or that usually have a fee for FREE!
