Contrary to the spectrum of fall color, the Big Apple is turning greener than ever.
New York welcomes its two newest Midtown additions to the LEED certified building family. Fisher Brothers, who manage 605 Third Avenue and Park Avenue Plaza, have been granted LEED certification for their two nearly 1 million sq foot office spaces. 605 Third Avenue was granted the LEED-EB: OM Gold, and its Park Avenue Plaza companion was awarded LEED-EB: OM Silver, both highly respectable ratings for such enormous structures. LEED certification has four tiers, the highest of which is Platinum. Silver and Gold are respectively the second and third level building certification.
