The Henry Miller Theatre on 43rd Street in Times Square is pursuing LEED Gold certification. The broadway theater is located inside Bank of America Tower at One Bryant Park and will have 1,055 seats. But what's interesting about it is how the facade was braced from the front while everything behind it was demolished (see below). The 1918 Georgian facade fronts a brand new 50,000 square-foot facility with 95% air filtration, FSC-certified wood products, locally-sourced marble, and waterless urinals, etc.
Henry Miller Theatre has been closed since 2004, but soon, "Bye Bye Birdie" will hit the stage with John Stamos, Gina Gershon, and Bill Irwin. The theater and the Bank of America Tower are an Empire State Development Corporation project and a joint venture of The Durst Organization and Bank of America.
