Lever House Achieves LEED Gold, Wins Preservation Award

Lever House

Our 21st century restoration of Lever House, originally built in 1952, has been recognized for its sustainability and preservation. The project was recently awarded LEED Gold certification—an official recognition of a project’s compliance with sustainability standards created and maintained by the U.S. Green Building Council. 

The landmark also received the Lucy G. Moses Preservation Award, the highest honor from the New York Landmarks Conservancy. Our preservation work, which captures the original aesthetic through a combination of material science and careful craftsmanship, is a primary example of how we can extend the life, vitality, and sustainability of our existing buildings.
