A large commercial office complex, designed according to the principles of Maharishi Sthapatya Veda, is now under construction near the Bethesda Peace Palace in Rockville, Maryland.

Tower II, the development of Dr Jeffrey Abramson and family, is the largest building of its type in the world. At 200,000 square ft, 9 storeys tall, this $70 million structure will be the largest commercial office building built according to Maharishi Sthapatya Veda, a landmark in fortune-creating buildings. Renderings of the building show a very striking presence.

It will also be the most environmentally friendly commercial building in the world, certified to the Gold Standard by the US Green Building Council. It will achieve a 45 per cent reduction in use of electricity and 48 per cent reduction in water use. Seventy percent of the materials to build it will be shipped from within 500 miles of the site, yielding energy savings equivalent to removing 8,500 cars from the road.

The developers and the Abramson family broke ground for the building on April 30, 2006—Akshaya Tritiya (Day of Lasting Achievements) in the Vedic Calendar—an auspicious day for the beginning of new projects. Construction has begun, with the Vastu foundation being poured this week. Construction is expected to be complete within a year, and the opening has been set for 1 July 2008.

Tower II will be an inspiration for the future, and a tremendous magnet for people from around the world to observe for themselves just how graceful and practical a Maharishi Sthapatya Veda building can be, and what makes it the highest advancement of building and development in the world today.
