Article – “Ten of the Greenest Skyscrapers in the World”

This article reminded me of the video shown in 371 about 340 on the Park in Chicago and actually includes that building on their list. Other highlights include:

  • World Trade Center Towers in Bahrain – Featuring three behemoth 96-foot wide wind turbine blades between the towers, over 1100 megawatts of electricity will be generated per year for the structure.
  • CIS Tower in England –  With over 7000 solar panels and 24 wind turbines, the tower represents a stunning achievement in what be accomplished when you combine skyscrapers and clean technology.
  • Hearst Tower in New York – The Hearst Tower was New York’s first skyscraper to receive the gold LEED certification.  Nearly 80% of the steel used to create this structure was recycled, as well as much of the interior’s flooring and ceiling materials.
