One Bryant Park is a green building in Manhattan, New York City. It is the headquarters of Bank America.

It has:

  • Energy-saving thermal storage system: 44 10-foot high, cylindrical tanks, each with water and a cooling coil inside.
  • Waterless urinals, which have a special drain fitted with a cartridge full of a liquid less dense than urine, which acts as a seal for odors.
  • Lights that automatically dim according to daylight
  • Recycled materials used extensively
  • Foundation made of slag (reducing concrete use)
  • A 4.6 megawatt cogeneration plant.

It was decided not to use building-integrated photovoltaics or wind turbines as they were not cost-effective.
