Agree’s state-of-the-art campus in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan is comprised of two buildings: 70 East Long Lake Road and “The Howe” located at 44 East Long Lake Road. 70 East Long Lake received an American Institute of Architects Honor Award in 2015 for its architecture and design and features the use of water conserving plumbing fixtures, programmable thermostats, and energy saving lighting control systems. The Howe, located at 44 East Long Lake Road, was completed in 2019 and throughout its development the Company embraced the opportunity to exercise environmental responsibility through design and systems that include the use of daylight windows with Low-E window glass, LEED HVAC systems, LED occupancy-sensored lighting and a significant reduction in hardscape which minimizes rainwater runoff and erosion. The construction of both buildings on the Agree Campus included an extensive reuse of existing structures of former buildings to minimize the amount of waste material. Finally, the Company’s landscaping includes widespread use of ornamental grasses specifically selected to reduce water usage.
The Company’s internal operations include the use of paper, battery and toner cartridge recycling services in lieu of customary disposal of these items. Further, the Company continues to encourage movement to a paperless environment through significant investment in technology.

Agree remains committed to using our time, talents, resources and relationships to grow in a manner that makes the world and the environment better for future generations.
