Leed platinum BoA actually NY's biggest energy hog

Interesting article here revealing that the Bank of America tower in New York, which has been awarded many times for the incorporated sustainable strategies, is actually New York's biggest energy hog. To me it confirms that most of these LEED accredited skyscrapers are really more about greenwashing and window dressing, then it is about anything else.

Wow, you know I've always liked the building and when defending it my last resort is always the LEED Certificate in which the other person would always surrender and go well ok I can't argue with that! Just goes to show even buildings like the ESB which in theory should require more energy actually use less energy than a building with nearly half the amount of floors!
