New York Times Headquarters

Designed by Renzo Piano and unofficially titled "Manhattan's Greenest Tower", the project included executive offices, cafeteria, conference centre, auditorium and the largest cogeneration plant in a New York City office tower.

The building achieves 90% efficiency on heating and cooling systems by use of a co-generation plant that supplies 40% of the power for the offices.  The plant has an expected 21% return on investment in approximately three years.  Natural light is harvested and an advanced automatic dimming light system produces energy savings of 30%.

The 52 storey tower utilises 90% recycled content structural steel and has a glazed facade.  The facade provides 75% transparency and low iron double-glazed glass delivers comfortable surroundings for users.
