Curtain rises on Broadway's first green theater

June 01, 2009 |

The Durst Organization and Bank of America have opened New York's first LEED-certified theater, the 1,055-seat Henry Miller's Theatre. Located inside the new 55-story Bank of America Tower at One Bryant Park, the 50,000-sf theater is located behind the preserved and restored neo-Georgian façade of the original 1918 theater. Cook+Fox Architects headed the design team, with Tishman Construction as CM, Fisher Dachs Associates as theater consultant, and Jaffe Holden Acoustics as acoustician.

The team executed a design scheme that incorporates a number of green features, including 95% air filtration and carbon dioxide sensors to maximize fresh air supply, FSC-certified wood products, and waterless urinals.
