During a recent celebration honouring Dr Eike Hartmann, the Minister of Vedic Architecture for the Global Country of World Peace, real estate developer Dr Jeffrey Abramson presented details of his newly constructed all-green, non-toxic office building in Washington, DC, USA, called 'Tower II'.

Dr Abramson, a major partner in The Tower Companies, noted that in the real estate industry, the builders of commercial buildings are responsible for 40% of the energy used in the United States.

'Maharishi had taught us that it only takes a few people to create change and transform the world. I decided that I would start building in accord with Natural Law, building sustainable properties. At Tower II, the fourth green building built by The Tower Companies, we'll use 42% less energy then a typical office building. We'll use 48% less water and 50% of the amount of artificial light normally required. We used only healthy construction materials, and 65% of the materials came from within 500 miles. Every 55 minutes the air is turned over and triple filtered inside the building. We did an extensive amount of work to capture EMFs that might spread anywhere near people'.

Dr Abramson proclaimed that if everyone built sustainable buildings like this it would be the equivalent of moving one third of the cars in the US off the road.

'It would mean the real estate industry could lead the way in a rapid reduction of the energy consumption in the US. Reducing waste is the next industrial revolution. But the potential of the built environment does not end here. We can go way beyond green and, thanks to Maharishi, construct buildings that increase intelligence and good fortune, which is the ultimate purpose of office buildings'.

Dr Abramson emphasized the rising recognition in the media and the public that green building and 'total sustainability' is the urgent need of our time.

'The press has taken great interest in this idea of going beyond green and talking true sustainability. People spend 90% of their time indoors. Now, through building in accord with Natural Law, we can maximize our investment in people and increase their creativity, their team building and dynamism. People want to run to work in an environment that is this conducive to success and loyalty. The huge human potential that has not been realized is now dawning with Maharishi Sthapatya Ved'. Maharishi Sthapatya Veda.'

Dr Abramson proclaimed that this higher system of architecture will catalyze the next transformation of the real estate industry. 'Maharishi said that
Vastu connects individual life with the cosmic life, and now it is our joy to give this connection to the world.'
