Boasting nearly 600,000 square feet of commercial office space, 1740 Broadway’s design actually mimics the Empire State Building’s but at quarter of the size. In 2008, Vornado Realty Trust earned a Silver rating for the building under the LEED for Existing Buildings: Operations & Maintenance rating system. The building scored 38 out of a possible 92 points: 10/30 in Energy & Atmosphere; 4/14 in Materials and Resources; 6/19 in Indoor Environmental Quality; 7/12 in Sustainable Sites; 5/10 in Water Efficiency; and 6/7 in Innovation in Operations.
An Energy Information Portal (EIP) – which is standard across Vornado’s Class A Manhattan properties – also provides tenants with real-time monitoring of their energy consumption in both graph and tabular format. And 1740 Broadway has earned an Energy Star Award with a score of 83 (performing in the top 17 percent of other similar commercial office buildings in terms of energy efficiency). Notable tenants include Victoria’s Secret.
