SEATTLE —

A new office building in Seattle that bills itself as the greenest commercial building in the world opens to the public Monday.

The six-story, 5,000 square-foot Bullitt Center was designed to generate as much electricity as the building requires, collects rainwater for re-use and contains no toxic materials, including PVC or formaldehyde.

The building, owned by the nonprofit Bullitt Foundation, is being hailed as a leader for environmental construction. It features toilets that compost human waste on site, a rooftop solar system and a 56,000-gallon cistern to capture rainwater.

Tenants include the University of Washington Integrated Design Lab, the Bullitt Foundation, the International Living Future Institute and others.
