Bob Fox: Designing a new New York
Kevin Salwen on Podcast

Bob Fox has a vision for New York: one with plenty of view, wonderful indoor air and energy efficiency to die for. He's developing that vision in the center of Manhattan, at One Bryant Park, the new Bank of America tower that will feature floor-to-ceiling glass for sunlight, individual heating controls and will recycle all rainwater and waste water. In fact, the building is aiming to receive LEED Platinum certification for design, a first for a skyscraper.

At the Greenbuild show, I had the opportunity to slow Bob down for this 20 minute Podcast to talk about the building, his vision for a greener New York and even ways to redesign the subways to create a more efficient system. For more, listen here.

I like the idea that NYC is 'warm and fuzzy'. You're right Bob, NYC has become a wonderful place.

And, the BoA building will be another reason for me to visit.

Thanks.

Fox's optimism is such a breath of fresh air. Makes me want to work on this building with him.

Fox's thoughts on the future of skyscrapers in New York is encouraging. The town is such a money-first place that 'green' construction has to move away from a family saying it wants the best in enviro construction to being something that saves builders and developers money. When The Donald builds green, you'll know you made it.
