1745 Broadway: Random House Earns Gotham’s Second LEED-EB Rating

Random House’s North American headquarters is now New York City’s second LEED for Existing Buildings (LEED-EB) rating.

1745 Broadway - Lobby

Last week, Random House announced that its North American headquarters building at 1745 Broadway has earned New York City’s second LEED for Existing Buildings (LEED-EB) certification. To date, only the New York Mercantile Exchange in Battery Park City had formally received the award from USGBC.

Random House was able to earn its rating in just nine months; the LEED-EB program requires a building to submit three months of performance data in order to participate and seek the designation. The project team at 1745 Broadway included AKF and LiRo, who both assisted Random House in turning their existing corporate building management strategy into a LEED-EB application. Random House has followed an environmental paper policy since 2006, and will increase its recycled fiber content use from 10 percent last year to 30 percent by 2010.
