CBRE/New England works with several clients to pursue WiredScore Certification, the international standard for cutting-edge internet connectivity in office buildings. Recently, three office buildings in our leasing portfolio within the Greater Boston area have achieved Platinum and Gold Wired Certification for having best-in-class connectivity infrastructure—One Boston Place and 33 Arch Street, both owned by TH Real Estate, and 451 D Street, owned by a joint venture between Meritage Properties and Commonwealth Ventures.
To achieve Wired Certification, properties must meet a rigorous set of standards developed in conjunction with the top minds in the telecom and commercial real estate industries. The accreditation has proven to be a popular accolade amongst Class A and Class B buildings, citing further claim to which assets are more efficiently set up for today’s demanding tenancies.
“Network connectivity has become increasingly more important to corporate occupiers as the adoption of cloud computing, office collaboration, and telecommunicating gains momentum. It is imperative for building owners to provide their tenants with best-in-class connectivity options to stay relevant and competitive in the market. WiredScore has provided a great platform for owners to showcase their technology infrastructure in a concise and standardized manner.” – CBRE/NE’s Rich Modliszewski
By distinguishing buildings with the best tech capabilities, Wired Certification makes information about internet connectivity more transparent than ever before, enabling commercial buildings to benchmark themselves against a single standard and upgrade their offerings and allowing businesses to identify the best buildings in which to grow.
