360 Hamilton Avenue, White Plains, NY
Commercial Office Building - 384,000 sq. ft.

SL Green Realty Corp. and its suburban division, Reckson, are committed to improving efficiency and tenant experience. 360 Hamilton Ave, located in the city's central business district, is the culmination of ongoing sustainable development throughout the portfolio.

The building, an abandoned AT&T facility, was upgraded to a first class property for its Fortune 500 tenants through a multi-million dollar repositioning. The upgraded HVAC infrastructure set the stage for ongoing improvements over time and allowed the property to receive the US EPA ENERGY STAR Label.

These accomplishments are part of a direct effort to work closely with tenants, and assist the needs of their own environmental programs, establishing a strong education and awareness program. Through various media and events, Reckson makes every effort possible to ensure tenants are aware of the sustainability program and ongoing developments at the property.
