The Empire State Building, opened in 1931, is the world's most famous office building and attracts 3.5 - 4 million visitors each year. The architectural challenge is to upgrade the building's energy efficiency using sustainable materials and attain LEED® EBOM Gold certification upon completion. The upgrade includes a re-roof at various tiers from the ground up. Part of the roof was completed in late 2011 with the other areas scheduled for later in 2012. This project will convert various tiers of asphaltic roof systems into a valued vegetative green space in the middle of Manhattan, New York city.
