Food1st Logo

En avril 2020, pour faire face à la pandémie de Covid-19, SL Green a créé Food1st, une nouvelle association à but non lucratif (501(c)3). Son objectif ? Combattre la pénurie alimentaire qui touche actuellement New York et qui s’est aggravée au cours des derniers mois.

La mission de Food1st est de procurer de la nourriture aux habitants et aux travailleurs des services essentiels qui ont un accès limité à la nourriture. L’association œuvre conjointement avec des prestataires de services de restauration pour permettre à l’industrie new-yorkaise de ce secteur de travailler pendant cette période de crise.

La Fondation Food1st a été lancée en partenariat avec le chef Daniel Boulud. Il a été le précurseur de cette initiative en rappelant tous ses employés pour cuisiner pour le corps médical et les premiers intervenants. Au cours des 12 derniers mois, la Fondation Food1st a servi plus de 600 000 repas aux personnes dans le besoin dans plus de 130 emplacements situés aux quatre coins de la ville.

La fondation cherche à résoudre la situation de crise dans laquelle se trouve l’industrie alimentaire et des boissons new-yorkaise. Cette industrie joue un rôle central dans l’économie de la ville et emploie des centaines de milliers de personnes. Food1st travaille avec une trentaine de cuisines et une centaine d’aides de cuisine et a pour objectif d’étendre la portée de ce programme.

À l’heure actuelle, près de 5 millions de dollars ont été récoltés par SL Green et plus de 500 partenaires et collaborateurs.

One Vanderbilt s’attache à imaginer des bâtiments de haute performance à New York, et offre une expérience urbaine exceptionnelle, le tout grâce à une approche durable en matière de design et d’équipements.

Avant même le début du projet, nous avions pour objectif de concevoir l’une des tours avec l’empreinte carbone la plus faible de New York. Nous avons suivi les normes les plus élevées et avons adopté une approche basée sur la performance en matière de design, d’équipements et d’entretien, pour des résultats visibles. Vous avez du mal à y croire ? Découvrez les caractéristiques qui nous démarquent, de la construction au cycle de vie entier de la tour.

We reached a 75% recycling rate during project demolition and construction. This achievement is unique because we were able to repurpose an entire city block of building materials and divert waste from landfills.

In order to minimize our use of virgin resources, we procured steel rebar for our concrete foundation that was comprised of 90% recycled materials.

With a focus on optimizing energy performance, the building is designed to consume 26% less energy than the ASHRAE 90.1-2007 baseline, which establishes criteria for energy related characteristics of buildings.

One Vanderbilt is equipped with high performance window glazing that improves insulation for heating and cooling efficiency and reduces energy waste.

SL Green invested $220 million in public realm and transit improvements to enhance the infrastructure for the Midtown East community.

In alignment with our commitment to diversity, 19% of our contractors throughout construction were represented by M/WBE companies.

One Vanderbilt’s 1.2-megawatt cogeneration system generates electricity onsite and is projected to provide almost 50% of the whole building’s electrical use. This advanced technology reduces demand on the New York City grid and eliminates heat waste.

Our 150,000-gallon rainwater and collection treatment system reduces the demand for cooling tower water by 1 million gallons per year. Our spaces are also equipped with ultra-high efficiency water fixtures that reduce water use by 40%.

Reduced lighting power density and occupancy sensors throughout One Vanderbilt’s base building areas improve energy consumption.

One Vanderbilt participates in utility demand response programs by voluntarily powering down nonessential equipment and lighting when the electric grid is strained due to high power consumption across New York City.

Our destination dispatch elevators not only improve the rider experience, but also save energy by grouping passengers with similar destinations, which reduces the number of start and stop times.

The janitorial team at One Vanderbilt is continuously trained to promote and improve building-wide recycling rates by using a color-coordinated waste management system.

Bien-être

One Vanderbilt a été conçu pour être le bâtiment new-yorkais le plus sécurisé, le plus propre et le plus respectueux de l’environnement.

La tour One Vanderbilt se démarque par une approche réfléchie de l’agencement en matière de bien-être, que ce soit au niveau de la qualité de l’air et de l’eau, de l’entretien et de la désinfection, de la lumière naturelle et des aménagements du système de construction du bâtiment. Ensemble, ces éléments revalorisent les normes de construction pour un environnement construit durable.

Air Filtration

HVAC systems throughout the building are equipped with MERV 16 media filters that capture over 95% of airborne particles. This filtration level greatly exceeds the requirements of New York City’s Energy Code, which prescribes the use of MERV 9 filters. HEPA filters have also been positioned throughout common areas to capture 99.99% of particles.

Enhanced Ventilation

Mechanical systems increase the supply of outdoor air and continuously cycle fresh, filtered air throughout the building. One Vanderbilt exceeds outdoor air supply rates recommended by ASHRAE’s technical standards by 30%.

Real-Time Air Quality Monitoring

Base building air quality is assured by WellStat, a monitoring system that provides real-time air quality levels that measure indicators including carbon dioxide, particulate matter, VOCs, temperature, humidity, and more.

Water Contaminant Testing

All potable water is tested quarterly at the dispensation point for lead, copper, turbidity, disinfectant byproducts, fertilizers, and other organic pollutants. Water testing is conducted by an external third party based on thresholds published by the World Health Organization and the Environmental Protection Agency.

Moisture Management

Our operational strategies minimize the presence of unintentional moisture to protect occupants from adverse health effects and to protect mechanical systems from physical or chemical damage. As part of our inspection protocol, we periodically assess potential water infiltration, leakage, and mold growth and implement corrective actions.

Real-Time Air Quality Monitoring

Base building air quality is assured by WellStat, a monitoring system that provides real-time air quality levels that measure indicators including carbon dioxide, particulate matter, VOCs, temperature, humidity, and more.

Pollutant Management

All building entrances are designed to contain ground pollution and particulates. These entryway systems integrate grilles, grates, slots, and rollout mats that undergo a thorough cleaning process.

UV-C Light Disinfection

SUMMIT’s escalator handrails are disinfected using UV-C light technology, capable of destroying more than 99% of germs and virus particles on surfaces, preventing spread and infection in high-touch locations.

Enhanced Access to Daylighting

One Vanderbilt’s design purposefully maximizes access to daylighting for 85% of floor area through floor-to-ceiling windows and column free floor-plates. The building’s lighting environment benefits visual, circadian, and mental health, while improving productivity.

Sound

Acoustical comfort is integrated into One Vanderbilt’s infrastructure through sound mapping. Internal and external noise sources that can impact the acoustical environment of interior spaces have been accounted for to reduce background noise throughout the building.
