Hearst Tower

May 2007

Cover Story. Companies like the privately-held media giant Hearst Corporation are fast proving that the exception to the 'lean portfolio' is the green high-rise. The company's artful, new 46-story high rise is the product of a decade's-plus labor of love for Brian G. Schwagerl, MCR, Vice President of Corporate Real Estate. The end result encompasses multiple facets of sustainability including location, design, materials, construction, energy use, workplace configuration and practices, building operation, branding, culture, and the involvement and influence of key supply chain players. Hearst Corporation is the first major company to go LEED in New York.
