This 10 story office building at the corner of State and Fayette Street in the heart of downtown Syracuse set a new standard for energy conservation when it was built over 20 years ago. Total energy consumption, at 36,000 BTU/per square foot/per year, was less than half of the average for comparable buildings according to Niagara Mohawk Power Company. Modular Comfort Systems, working in conjunction with The Pioneer Companies developed new energy management technology including a wireless, direct digital, computer controlled, water scource heat pump system with off peak storage. One Park Place was truly ahead of its time and a benchmark for today’s green buildings.
