The Chyrsler Building Goes Green

The Chrysler building was recently awarded LEED Gold certification.
A major part of the city skyline, and many New Yorkers favorite art deco building, the building received the certification after owner Tishman Speyer made several environmentally-friendly adjustments to its infrastructure and operations. The Chrysler building joins The Empire State Building with dual Energy Star and LEED for Existing Buildings: Operations and Maintenance Gold certification.

According to a release from the company, Tishman Speyer chose to upgrade, among other things:
  • Water fixtures, which were replaced with more efficient equipment to reduce water consumption by 64 percent.
  • The building’s waste policy was adjusted to raise the recycling rate to 81 percent total waste recycled.
  • Building systems - which led to a 21 percent decrease in energy usage.
With this certification, Tishman Speyer now has 49 properties with LEED or equivalent designations.  This includes San Francisco’s 555 Mission and One Bush Place, New York’s Hearst Tower.
