CTBUH: One Bryant Park Named One of the 50 Most Influential Tall Buildings of the Last 50 Years
In conjunction with its 50th anniversary, the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) has revealed a special list of the “50 Most Influential Tall Buildings of the Last 50 Years.”
“Each of the tall buildings on this list represent a milestone in the development of the tall building,” said Antony Wood, CTBUH CEO. “From this, we learn that the development of the skyscraper typology is not a simple case of linear hand-offs from one generation to the next; rather, it is an interpolating dialogue that will continue to inform and inspire us for the next 50 years and beyond.”
With the Bank of America as [One Bryant Park’s] primary tenant, occupying six trading floors and 75% of its interior, the tower signals a significant shift in corporate America and in the real estate industry, acknowledging the higher value of healthy, productive workplaces. The building’s advanced technologies include a clean-burning, on-site, 5.0 MW cogeneration plant, which provides approximately 65% of the building’s annual electricity requirements and lowers daytime peak demand by 30%.
