“Green” features are built into building operations:

  • District cooling and state-of-the-art energy management technologies maximize efficiency.
  • The geometry of the tower and exterior glass fins reduce solar load.
  • Energy-efficient light fixtures use minimal energy to operate.
  • Light fixtures dim automatically depending on available natural light.
  • Sensors dim lights when space is not occupied.
  • Raised-floor air distribution increases efficiency and contributes to indoor air quality.
  • The tower's geometry and glass walls allow abundant natural light in all areas.
