Miami Tower, an iconic symbol of the city, has recently added color to the downtown skyline with the recent adoption of a dynamic exterior LED lighting system. According to Philips Color Kenetics, the LED system will reduce related lighting energy usage by 92 percent and save tenants and the building’s owner nearly $260,000 per year in energy and related operating costs. The LED lighting will also allow custom light shows at the push of a button in support of tenants, holidays, civic and charitable groups, and other organizations looking to promote or commemorate special events, further cementing the building’s status as an icon on the Miami skyline.
Miami Tower, a 47 story building, offers 623,000 square feet of commercial space. The team of Jones Lang LaSalle, Philips Color Kinetics and LED Source identified the optimal LED lighting solution based on long-term operational savings. The exterior lighting retrofit is the most prominent element of a broader initiative to reduce energy and water usage and to follow sustainable management practices at Miami Tower.
“This significant upgrade is just one of several projects planned at Miami Tower,” said Ty Spearing, managing director at LaSalle Investment Management. “Miami Tower has always been an iconic, easy-access downtown tower. Our goal is to re-establish Miami Tower as a leader in technology, architecture and design, environmental sustainability, and on-site amenities; all of which Miami’s top tenants demand.”
