The Tower Companies Leverage Green Leases to Reduce Energy and Water Use
The Tower Companies (Tower) owns and manages over 3 million square feet of commercial and residential building space in the Washington D.C. area. Like most landlords, Tower does not have control over energy and water usage in tenant office spaces. However, they raise the bar on lighting and water efficiency through lease language that requires a 16% improvement over the local lighting codes and a 30% improvement in plumbing fixture efficiency over current building performance.
