From post on Sustainable Cities Collective:

"What's most interesting to us about this particular lease, though, is that LinkedIn's executives were impressed with efforts by the property's management to make the building more environmentally friendly."

"We are thrilled to have a leading social media network company at the Empire State Building ... I'm pinching myself. Five years ago, I never would have believed we would have had a tenant like this."

The retrofit should ultimately result in a Gold LEED for Existing Buildings Rating.
