great view from top of the rock, looking forward to getting up there myself in December. Are people liking the BoA cladding? Liking the shape, a bit bulky at the base, but tapers up reasonably well.

Is it true that they added more to the spire? Let's finish her up.

Al Gore firm to lease space in the eco-friendly midtown tower
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
BY BILL HUTCHINSON

DAILY NEWS STAFF WRITER

Thursday, November 15th 2007, 4:00 AM

The investment firm of global warming guru Al Gore is bringing some green to midtown.

Generation Investment Management announced Wednesday that it's poised to lease office space in the eco-friendly Bank of America tower going up across from Bryant Park.

The skyscraper, being developed by the Durst Organization, was picked by Gore's outfit because it "epitomizes our company's philosophy," said Peter Knight, president of the firm's U.S. operations.

"The building is on the cutting edge of sustainable technology, it is the product of decades of planning and its location and design are second to none," Knight said.

Developers of the 54-story crystalline tower at 1 Bryant Park, set to open next year, hope to get approval from the U.S. Green Buildings Council.

The building features waterless urinals, translucent insulating glass that promotes energy efficiency and carbon dioxide monitors that automatically adjust the amount of fresh air. It also will have daylight dimming and LED lights to reduce electricity usage.

Generation Investment, founded by Gore and former Goldman Sachs executive David Blood in 2004, has its eye on 5,000 square feet of space on the 48th floor, officials said.

The firm already has offices in London and Washington.

Douglas Durst, co-president of the Durst Organization, said Gore's green-minded company would be "the perfect tenant."
