Brower Center’s New Restaurant Opens

A few days before it opened in early May, we got a sneak peek at Downtown Berkeley’s David Brower Center, a 50,000-square-foot multi-use space hailed as the East Bay’s “greenest building.” Designed to be 40 percent more energy-efficient than conventional structures of its size, featuring zinc siding, photovoltaic panels, high-efficiency lighting, low-pressure ventilation, non-toxic fabrics and finishes, and recycled-fiber carpets, the center houses nonprofits, a state-of-the-art theater, and now a restaurant, which is set to open next Tuesday.
