In February 2012, EPA Region 2's Caribbean Environmental Protection Division (CEPD) moved into the top floor of City View Plaza, a recently built multi-tenant office building in Guaynabo, Puerto Rico. This location was specifically selected to showcase green building strategies and demonstrate how local citizens could incorporate sustainability, energy efficiency, and environmental performance into their daily lives.

The building achieved LEED®Exit EPA Disclaimer for commercial interiors version 2009 Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) in October 2012. The CEPD office space is the first LEED-CI project in Puerto Rico to attain Gold certification.
