Energy Efficiency of Bank of America Tower Depends on the Metric You Choose
If there is one thing the office tower and trading center at One Bryant Park teaches us it is that energy metrics are complicated, and no one number can tell the full story. This sleek tower, with the Bank of America as its primary tenant, is not a low-energy building by any definition. To some extent, that’s a function of its program: it contains a whopping 600,000 ft2 of trading floors, draped in video screens streaming financial information, and a data center serving that trading activity and other Bank of America services. But it also has to do with choices that elevated technological solutions over envelope efficiency.
