Eleven Times Square is planned to be one of the next green buildings in NYC at 8th Avenue and 42nd Street. The 1.1 million sf speculative office space, with two floors of retail, will be finished in 2009. Also, if everything goes as planned, 11 Times Square will be certified to the LEED Silver level by the USGBC. While it’s still early, apparently the 40-story tower is two months ahead of schedule (but there’s still 2 more years to get behind schedule). The tower was designed by FXFOWLE Architects, and specific details of green elements are kind of hard to come by. We’ll keep an eye on it and pass on more details as the specifics come available.
