Green building
benefits occupants
and the environment.

Cutting-edge design, sophisticated engineering and advanced technologies deliver energy efficiency as part of a commitment to environmental responsibility which has been a cornerstone of the 3WTC project. These innovations mean cost savings for tenants, and a healthier and more productive workplace. Benefits include cleaner air and increased natural light along with reduced electricity and water usage.

Respect for nature and
for your bottom line.

  • 100% of building power comes from renewable sources including wind, solar and hydroelectric.
  • 12% less electricity usage than a conventional office building because of high-performance elevators, heating and cooling systems.
  • 30% less water usage, thanks to rain water collection and low-flow fixtures.
  • Full-height, insulated windows reduce the need for artificial lighting and air-conditioning.

  • 50% of the building’s wood is sustainably harvested.
  • No ozone-depleting refrigerants are used, and all cleaning products are green.
  • Building materials include significant recycled content.
  • 20% of the building’s materials are local - coming from within 500 miles.

Building green.

Clean air during construction.

Through the pioneering Diesel Emissions Reduction Project, we improved the quality of life for our tenants and neighbors by reducing dust, air and water pollution. Ultra-low sulfur diesel fuel was used with innovative filter technologies to reduce diesel emissions from construction equipment by as much as 90%. Equipment and vehicles were hosed down, minimizing dust. Construction materials were recycled.
