Icon has a strong commitment to sustainability. It subscribes to the simple philosophy that the most sustainable building is the one that is already built. Reusing the 28,000 ton concrete frame in Manhattan has resulted in significant carbon reduction. The transformed Manhattan uses 30% less energy than the old building, in part, due to thoughtful design such as the fully glazed façade which is solar-reflecting, heat-blocking and thermally insulating. Manhattan is targeting a rating of BREEAM Excellent.
