Tallest LEED Building in the US

Breaking records, the LEED Gold certified building is the tallest in the US. It was designed to use 40% less water than a typical office building, and the plaza was designed to reduce heat-island effect from the pavement by 70%. Reducing air conditioning and lighting costs, the low-emissivity glass curtainwall blocks 60% of heat while allowing 70% of the sun’s light inside.
