• Green and eco-friendly veer° TOWERS, designed for LEED Gold certification

    A city’s skyline is like a birthmark. It defines the city and makes it distinct, with picturesque views as the sun sets below the horizon. Cities like the Big Apple, Chicago and Shanghai are known for their sky scraping skylines with all those tall buildings reaching for the clouds. The Las Vegas skyline will now have an additional touch that will stand tall above with the 37-storey veer° TOWERS by Murphy/Jahn. These towers, probably gaining inspiration from Italy’s iconic leaning tower of Pisa are inclined at opposing angles and will house some 400 residences. With all this, the building aims for a LEED Gold certification and will use some green technology to achieve this, including the use of staggered panels of clear and fritted yellow glass cut glare that let in daylight and give the façade a better look too!

    We’d like to see this one in the Las Vegas skyline, and would love to see it adopt all the green technology it plans to.
