The BNY Mellon Center at One Boston Place is a forty-one story Class A office tower located in Boston's Financial District within walking distance of Government Center, Beacon Hill, Faneuil Hall and Downtown Crossing.  Constructed in 1970 as the Boston Company Building, One Boston Place is currently Boston's fourth tallest building at 601 feet tall.  In addition to the Bank of New York Mellon Corporation, the building serves as the home of several prominent legal and financial firms.

In 2004, BNY Mellon Center completed the installation of a high efficiency non-CFC chiller plant that includes four high efficiency electric centrifugal chillers, all with VFDs.

In 2006, the building converted four remaining constant air volume induction unit fans to variable air volume. The project included the addition of variable speed drives and direct digital controls to control the fan speed of induction heating and cooling units.  Each AHU has a steam preheat coil and chilled water coil to maintain discharge air temperature, and are capable of full 100% outside air economizer. 

In 2007, BNY Mellon Center implemented "On Demand" Saturday HVAC service in an effort to promote green building practices and reduce tenant operating escalations.  By requiring advanced request for Saturday HVAC service, the building has successfully reduced Saturday HVAC by an average of 50%, with an expected annual energy savings of over 100,000 kWh or $20,000.

In 2007, BNY Mellon Center completed a lighting upgrade program that incorporates the most energy efficient combination of light fixtures and occupancy sensors, in addition to programmable lighting control panels.
