Situated just off the Long Island Expressway near the technology corridor of Route 110, Canon Americas headquarters offers many modern amenities. The 52-acre complex features an open, campus-like feel with green space. It has a walking trail as well as two retention ponds. Within the five-story, 700,000-square-foot complex, Canon employees enjoy a showroom, learning center, cafeteria, fitness center and other amenities.

In addition, the building reflects Canon’s strong commitment to environmental sustainability. This is in line with its philosophy of Kyosei, which translates to “all people, regardless of race, religion or culture, harmoniously living and working together into the future.”

Canon Americas headquarters measures more than 500 feet long and nearly 300 feet wide. What’s more, 40.8% of the total building materials by value were manufactured using recycled materials. One Canon Park was also awarded LEED Gold certification. It is a recognition for the design, construction, operations as well as maintenance of high-performance green buildings. The facility stands as a model for environmental stewardship and innovation, as the largest commercial property on Long Island to achieve this level of LEED.

Characteristics of the facility that contribute to its environmental efficiency include:

  • Natural lighting that provides daylight to 75% of regularly occupied spaces
  • Options for alternative transportation, reserved parking for low-emitting and fuel-efficient vehicles, as well as 22 electric vehicle charging stations
  • Water efficient plumbing fixtures that reduce consumption by 35% based on typical usage
  • Canon was able to reduce the amount of asphalt on the grounds by building two multilevel parking garages.

Additionally, nearly 60% of the natural sites of native and adapted plant species were restored, creating ecosystems that require minimal irrigation.
