    Only the first? There have been plenty of green buildings constructed in New York over the years. What rating did Condé Nast get, if any?

    Conde Nast was LEED certified. 7WTC will be the first commercial building in NYC to receive a LEED rating above "certified" - the lowest rating in the system. The ratings are certified, silver, gold, and platinum. Thus 7WTC will be NY's first "LEED medal" recipient.

    Edit: But I think Conde Nast is the only other LEED office building in the city right now. There are several LEED residential buildings.

    I really hate that lobby color though, would've been better if it was the color of the windows.

    Those gaps are still wide open between the rows of windows on the upper portion of the substation.

    methinks that those gaps are the way it is going to be.

    odd, eh?

    No, not odd. Those are cooling gaps for the mechanical floors, I think.

    Yeah I think they're staying,

    BTW, what are the current plans for the lights in the crow, this was supposed to have a Bloomber-tower kind of crown, right? from what I remember of the renderings.

    Any idea how this building will be lit at night once it's completed, which is soon?

    I sort of like the gaps. The base looks nice and I love that pink color against all of the silver and grey- it looks very fresh.

    I've always suspected they'd be left open. Seems so unfinished. And Zippy brought up pigeons earlier. Office workers might not like a swarm of birds hovering over the entrance of the building crapping on their heads.

    It is odd that they spent so much time working on the metal part of the base, and then just leave holes in the facade above it. How hard is it to put up some vent covers?
