Area lawmakers and Jet Propulsion Laboratory officials turned out Monday morning to cut the ribbon on the new Flight Projects Center at the La Cañada Flintridge facility.

NASA is touting it as its “greenest” building to date, having received the LEED Gold Certification under the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design rating system. To qualify, buildings have to make “efficient use of water, energy and resources, and provide a healthy and comfortable indoor workspace,” according to a NASA/JPL  press statement.

Among the dignitaries seen at the ribbon cutting were La Cañada Flintridge Mayor Laura Olhasso, Councilman Dave Spence and La Cañada Flintridge Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Pat Anderson. Also attending the ceremony were U.S. Reps David Dreier and Adam Schiff.
