Five Crescent Drive has reduced energy consumption

  • A dramatic 4-story atrium in Five Crescent Drive’s core will bring natural light deep into 75% of the interior spaces of the building.

  • Eight-foot high continuous windows and ten-foot high ceilings on all floors of Five Crescent Drive offer views of South Philadelphia to 90% of building occupants.

  • Energy-savings measures add up to an estimated 30% reduction in annual energy costs as compared to a traditional office building. Energy saving fixtures include a heat recovery system, efficient lighting, LED site lighting, whole building metering and a building management system (BMS).

  • Energy efficient fixtures and individual LED task lighting contribute to a projected 25% reduction in lighting usage over ASHRAE 90.1-2007.

  • Green roof covered with 40% vegetation and an herb garden reduces energy costs by providing natural insulation and absorbing storm water.
