114 West 47th st
Manhattan, NY 10036
Rising in a classical manner from its base of patterned, honed and polished Caledonia Granite, the US Trust Building echoes the grandeur that has long distinguished New York city architecture. The US Trust Building at 114th W 47th St in New York city opened in 1989. It has recently achieved status as an ENERGY STAR Building. The building is 26 stories tall and contains 565,000 gross square feet. The major tenant is US Trust and the building is owned and operated by the Durst organization. 114 West 47th St has a convenient mid block street thru corridor connecting to 46th St, just west of the handsome granite framed main entry. The building's stately two-story lobby is distinguished by its complementing marble finishes and impressive rotunda. The granite-inlaid marble floors and walks are accented with mahogany paneling, while sleek columns of Black Laguna marble encircle the rotunda.
The building is climate-regulated by a variable air volume H.V.A.C. system. The zone controls are monitored by a new fully computerized Siemens Management System to assure uniform levels of comfort throughout the building. All major H.V.A.C equipment and pump motors are controlled by Variable Frequency Drives. There are 5 high-rise, and 6 low-rise Westinghouse Epoch I elevators that are computer supervised that yield an average waiting time of 28 seconds. The system minimizes peak hour delays on the elevators. The building also achieves superior energy efficiency through the use of advanced construction materials, additional insulation and important inclusions such as double-glazed windows which utilize glare-and-heat defecting gray tinted glass.
As one of the few major real estate companies that continues to own and manage the buildings its constructs. Durst takes great pride in achieving the prestige's ENERGY STAR distinction for 114th West 47th St.
