Jahn's 50 West Street Going LEED Gold

    50 West Street by Helmut Jahn

    Time Equities, Inc. just broke ground on 50 West Street, Manhattan's newest green condo and hotel skyscraper. Designed by influential architect Helmut Jahn, the $600 million, 580,000 sf mixed-use eco-tower is shooting for LEED Gold certification upon completion in 2011. As a result, the 65-story tower will incorporate a host of green features and measures, including a green roof, water-efficient fixtures, automated blinds and energy control systems, recycling of demolition materials, use of sustainable and rapidly renewable materials, and an energy-efficient glass facade to filter in daylight and filter out UV rays.

    50 West Street will have 240 residential units, 150 hotel rooms, and some retail space. The architect of record is Gruzen Samton.
