1 Bryant Park Tower Gets LEED Platinum Certification (PHOTOS)

From Inhabitat.com:

One Bryant Park in midtown Manhattan was already being called the greenest skyscraper in the world when it opened last year, and now it's taken that title even further by achieving LEED Platinum certification! Designed by Cook+Fox Architects and built by Tishman Construction Corporation, the tower is now not only a marvel of innovative design, it's also the world's first office tower to reach the USGBC's highest rating! If you live in or have visited New York recently, you've probably admired this elegant building from afar. But if you'd like to take a more in-depth look at One Bryant Park glinting in the summer sun, as well as the gorgeous green atrium within, check out our exclusive photos.
