Blaise Cresciullo and Tiffany Broyles Yost at Time-Life Building March 2012
At the celebration for the Time-Life Building's LEED Silver cert, we snapped Rockefeller Group Development Corp's Blaise Cresciullo and Urban Green Council's (that's the USGBC NY chapter) director of programs Tiffany Broyles Yost. Blaise is SVP of asset services, the latest industry lexicon for building operations. Tiffany tells us that at 2M SF, the Time-Life Building, at 1271 Ave of the Americas, is one of the largest certified for LEED for Existing Buildings. Rockeller's HQ just down the street at 1221, the McGraw-Hill Building, is 2.5M SF and was certified in '09. And the firm also manages the LEED-certified 745 7th Ave, once home to Lehman Brothers and now to Barclays Capital. Tiffany says only 38 NYC office buildings are certified LEED for Existing Buildings, and only 29 of those are LEED Silver or higher. (Look for them all to be released on Time-Life's Classic Buildings collection, for only four easy payments of $19.99.)
