As part of our commitment to the environment, green initiatives taken at 1211 Avenue of the Americas have resulted in LEED Gold certification for existing buildings (LEED EB).

Through its LEED EB certification and adopting a green operations and maintenance program, 1211 Avenue of the Americas brings value to those tenants looking for a green space.

Through the LEED EB certification we are able to quantify benefits such as reduced energy consumption, increased tenant comfort and operational savings from implementing recycling and environmentally preferred purchasing programs. Information gathered during this process can be leveraged to help tenants reach a LEED certification for their own office interiors (LEED CI).

By providing information gathered for LEED CI such as details on Green Construction Standards, a green cleaning program, recycling and water saving fixtures, building ownership can provide a new tenant with a suite of information that can bring a tenant fit out a long way towards meeting the requirements for achieving a LEED CI certification.
