Wall Street and LEED, Green Award for Millennium Tower, & Opening of Brooklyn Children’s Museum

gbNYC selects green news items of note that were reported across the New York City area during the week of September 14, 2008, including (of course) what the fallout from the ongoing chaos on Wall Street might mean for a number of planned LEED projects, from the new Goldman Sachs headquarters tower to the redevelopment of the World Trade Center site itself, a design excellence award for Battery Park City’s LEED Gold-certified Millennium Tower Residences, a report that Viacom will remain at SL Green’s 1515 Broadway as the tower undergoes a LEED-EB capital improvement program, the opening of the Rafael Vinoly-designed LEED Silver hopeful Brooklyn Children’s Museum, and more falling glass- this time from the 50th floor- at LEED Platinum hopeful Bank of America Tower.
