One Bryant Park was the first commercial high-rise in the United States to earn LEED® Platinum certification from the US Green Building Council
Strategically located on the northwest corner of Bryant Park, this New York Headquarters for the Bank of America rises 55 floors above street level. The project combines secure banking operations and significant public amenities including the restoration of the landmark Henry Miller’s Theatre (since renamed the Stephen Sondheim Theatre), a mid-block pedestrian walkway, and a street-level winter garden’with operable glazed screens. Dramatic crystalline forms sheathe the podium and tower that contain the Bank of America’s trading operations, amenity functions, and administrative areas.
Awarded LEED® Platinum certification in May 2010, the building employs extensive use of recycled and sustainable materials and incorporates a wide range of innovative green initiatives including pressurized underfloor plenums, co-generation, ice storage, breathing rooms, and light sensors.
