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.
