NYC Office Space Tips to Reduce Your Energy Bill
Below are helpful cost saving tips for NYC office space tenants to save money on their utility bills. Whether your lease is short or long term, the benefits of reducing energy use in your NYC office space are significant. It is best to contact a professional real estate rental broker in New York City who can tell you why these tips are important to consider before signing or renewing a lease.
A NYC real estate broker can help you find newly constructed and/or retrofitted LEED office space
It’s no secret that the majority of NYC office space building stock is old. With such a vast number of buildings built before “green” even became a buzzword for sustainability, it’s also no wonder that after salaries and real estate taxes, a business’s biggest cost is its utility bill.
Still, an increasing number of older NYC commercial office spaces are being retrofitted by landlords seeking to save money in the long run through green building techniques and certifications. LEED is the national green building certification standard for both retrofits and new developments.
Several LEED certified commercial office buildings already exist in the city (Bank of America Tower, The Hearst Tower, 11 Penn Plaza), and some real estate developers are even constructing zero-energy buildings. Knowing where to look for LEED commercial office space, retrofitted office space, and landlords in the process of retrofitting older office buildings is a time-consuming task. Contact a professional licensed real estate broker to start your property search for “green” space.
