Giant Eagle supermarket

3440 Center Rd. (SR 303)
Brunswick, Ohio

The new Giant Eagle Supermarket in Brunswick has incorporated a large array of green features into its design. To be completed in June 2004, the 80,000 square foot structure was designed by MCG Architecture.

According to a company spokesman, Giant Eagle is becoming increasingly interested in green building. In addition to saving energy and lessening pollution, the new store will provide a better experience for shoppers. The new Giant Eagle is also registered with the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program, and the company hopes it will be the first LEED-certified grocery store in the country.
