The Ocean One Tower planned for Pattaya, Thailand will not just be the tallest building in Thailand, it will also be eco-friendly. The Wall Street Journal recently ran a piece on environmentally-friendly architecture in Asia and highlighted this project, a 91-story beachfront condo development. The 611-unit building will be designed to conserve water and energy through a variety of different methods. Tap water will be fed back into toilets and then treated and used for the grounds and the gardens. The power of the highspeed elevator will also light the observation deck and solar panels on a nearby commercial building will power the shops and restaurants. The $245 million project is expected to be completed in 2010.
