IRS Office Bangor – 202 Harlow Street, Bangor, ME 04401
The IRS Office at Bangor is located in the Margaret Chase Smith Federal Building at Harlow Street. The building stands tall with a distinct presence. Not just the physical presence, the building has bagged several awards as well one of which is the prestigious Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum Rating. The building used to be known as somewhat of an ‘inefficient’ government building but the transformation to a highly efficient and green energy consuming building is quite impressive. The building was constructed in 1967 and it has 188,000 square feet of total floor space. Under a major renovation plan, the building has been upgraded with HVAC system, photovoltaic system, micro turbine, rain water harvesting system, high-efficiency glass windows, low-energy lighting, and water conversing plumbing features – all of which resulted in the Platinum rating as aforementioned. The property is currently evaluated at $52 million. Social Security Administration and GSA are two major tenants at this Federal Building. Some of the important neighboring locations are US Social Security Administration, Bangor Public Library, Bangor Farmer’s Market, Bangor Music Center, Payment Alliance International, Inc., Pierce Park etc.
