One Bryant Park

One Bryant Park is the first commercial office tower in the U.S. to achieve LEED Platinum certification, the U.S. Green Building Council, the Durst Organization and Bank of America announced today. The 55-story, 2.1 million-square-foot Skyscraper On Sixth Avenue And 42nd Street, also known as the Bank of America Tower, was designed by Cook + Fox Architects with an on-site cogeneration plant, ice storage system, “high-performance glass curtain wall” and an “advanced under-floor air delivery system.” The building was refinanced with a $1.28 billion three-year loan in June, in what was believed to be one of the largest single, private financing deals since the 2007 credit market freeze. The co-owners are reportedly nearing a deal to refinance the tower again with a 10-year, $1.3 billion loan from JPMorgan Chase. TRD
