'New York by Gehry' is a monumental 76-story residential skyscraper in New York City that is officially the tallest building of its kind in the western hemisphere.
Just as important as its landmark height, however, is the fact that 'New York' by Gehry utilizes some modest (but still important) green innovations such as greywater recyling and energy-efficient appliances. These are not game-changing eco-friendly implements, but it is nevertheless encouraging that a project of this size, scale, and significance has made incorporating some green design elements a priority.
