In 2008, the famed New York City skyline will be graced by the architecturally elegant and structurally ingenious office building at One Bryant Park. From sidewalk to spire, this high-rise stretches a remarkable 366 m into the air making it the second tallest building in New York City. The 51 office floors at One Bryant Park will be occupied primarily by the Bank of America. To serve the needs of this renowned financial institution, the podium of One Bryant Park will feature one of the largest trading facilities in the City. The podium will also be home to Henry Miller's Theater, a venerable Broadway institution with a landmark fa├žade that could not be demolished or relocated during construction. The structural design includes floor areas framed in structural steel with concrete slabs on metal deck. The core consists of a light-weight structural steel frame that is encased in reinforced concrete shear walls. Perimeter moment-resisting frames complete the lateral structural system. The interior of the core, including the stairs, is framed with reinforced concrete slabs and beams. One Bryant Park promises not only to become a magnificent addition to the New York City skyline but also a model for environmentally sensitive design as almost 100% of the structural steel used in its construction is recycled and 45% of the cement in the concrete is replaced by blast furnace slag, a waste product. It is expected to be the first Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum-rated high-rise office building in the world.
