Tower D stands on the south edge of Related Companies’ Hudson Yards development on the west side of Manhattan.  Tower D takes advantage of the larger campus’ sustainable amenities such as campus-wide stormwater reuse system, central open park area irrigated with rainwater, and district cogeneration system capable of providing demand-based electricity and hot water.  In addition the building items is pursuing heat island reduction through reflective materials, low-emitting interior materials, water-reducing plumbing fixtures such as dual-flush WCs and lavatory faucets, materials high in recycled and regional content, and outdoor air delivery monitoring.  Energy reductions are aggregated through a highly efficient (and expressive) curtainwall system, reduced corridor and stair lighting power, heat recovery of bathroom exhaust streams, high efficiency cooling tower and DX units with waterside economizer at amenities, and condensing boilers.
