    This week's Real Estate Weekly reports that the BOA tower will incorporate the following features in its bid to be the first platinum-rated for-profit office building:

    - All rainwater will be collected and used for flushing toilets and for cooling towers
    - There will be a 5+megawatt (!) generator on site
    - The retail space will be heated and cooled solely from heat exchangers linked to wastewater streams
    - The air the building emits will actually be cleaner than the air it takes in, due to all the filtering.

    I walk down 43rd street on the way to work, and I can tell you that this last feature is attractive. So many buildings shoot hot, sometimes dirty air right on to the sidewalk. It's like walking through a kitchen vent hood.

    This building won't just be less polluting, it will actually clean its surroundings.
