We are thrilled to announce that we will welcome NYC Council Member Daniel Garodnick as our special guest speaker at our New York City Cocktail Party on Tuesday, November 28th. Representing Manhattan’s East Side since 2005, Council Member Garodnick has been a strong and consistent advocate for a sustainable urban environment. He authored NYC’s first Green Energy Code and, more recently, he used the opportunity presented by the Midtown East rezoning to secure better transit and more open spaces for the community.
We are also honoring SL Green for creating a model for future developments that follow as part of the Midtown East rezoning. Nowhere is SL Green’s commitment to sustainability more evident than in the initiatives planned for One Vanderbilt, which will achieve one of the lowest carbon footprints in the City across buildings of similar scale and density. SL Green will also help fund $220 million in upgrades to Grand Central Terminal and will expand open spaces and plazas nearby.
Don’t miss your opportunity to celebrate the progress we’ve made together for New York City’s environment on Tuesday, November 28th. Become a sponsor or purchase your tickets today!
