EPA's Region 8 covers the mountain states of Colorado, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah, and Wyoming. In January 2007, the Region 8 Office relocated to a new facility leased by the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) for EPA. EPA occupies the nine-story building through a 10-year lease with GSA. In September 2007, the facility received the U.S. Green Building Council's (USGBC's) LEED®Exit EPA Disclaimer for new construction version 2.1 Gold certification. The facility, a product of more than three years of planning, design, and construction, serves as a hallmark of environmental sustainability in its Lower Downtown Historic District location.
