The Jerry Yang and Akiko Yamazaki Environment and Energy Building is coming along nicely. Yang is the co-founder of Yahoo! and Yamazaki is a director of the Wildlife Conservation Network in Los Altos. Needless to say, the powerful couple takes pride in their alma mater and the environment. But back to the building. Dubbed the Y2E2 Building, this $120 M building will be quite the eco-structure once completed. Funded in part by a $50 million grant by Yang and Yamazaki, Y2E2 is expected to use 50% less energy and roughly 90% water of a traditional building of similar size. Coming in at roughly 166,000 sf, Y2E2 is expected to be complete near the end of this year, say November or December-ish, and will become the future home for the Woods Institute for the Environment (and a couple other groups). Y2E2 is located at Via Ortega and Panama Street. Another image below the jump.
