Transamerica Pyramid awarded green building rating

A plaque will be presented Friday to building representatives with the Transamerica Pyramid to acknowledge a newly secured gold rating in the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design green building rating system, according to publicists Singer Associates.

Gold is the penultimate ranking in the LEED system, which was developed by the U.S. Green Building Council.

Mayor Gavin Newsom plans to attend the 10 a.m. ceremony, according to spokesman Joe Arellano.

Standing at roughly 850 feet near the North Beach neighborhood, the Transamerica Pyramid is the tallest building in The City.
