With nearly 500 solar panels, energy-efficient lightbulbs and other green commodities, the ICA Greenrise Building is trying to be 100 percent green by 2016. Beginning in 2011, the Institute of Cultural Affairs began remodeling the building, originally built in 1921. ICA officials say maintaining an environmentally friendly facility is simple and financially smart.
