The Connectivity Ratings Scheme will be delivered by WiredScore who already operate similar programmes in New York, Chicago and San Francisco.
If you want to lease office space with a small environmental footprint, you might consider a LEED-certified building. But if you’re a startup looking for good Internet service or a growing company that needs space to install telecommunications equipment, there hasn’t been a similar seal of approval. WiredScore is trying to change that.
WiredScore is becoming an important benchmark for TAMI tenants as their businesses tends to be more bandwidth-intensive.” said East End Capital Director Marc Gitto.
A Wired Certified building has been independently vetted and confirmed to have what it says it has – so you can avoid costly miscommunications or mishaps based on inaccurate or outdated information.
WiredScore is a relatively simple concept: it ranks the Internet connectivity of commercial buildings. This is something that has become an outright necessity in a city where a lot of the building stock is old, but the city’s economy is digital.
If a landlord wants to attract large national and multi-national firms, obtaining LEED, WiredScore, and Energy Star certifications are increasingly important.
The advent of cloud computing has transformed the technology needs of modern office tenants, and the developers of 150 N. Riverside say getting the building a Platinum certification has greatly helped marketing efforts.
They are asking the landlord, 'Does their building have Wired certification, and if so, at what level?' he said. 'It checks such an important box for the tenant. They can know the connectivity is at a superior level.'
WiredScore is endorsed by leading organizations in real estate and technology, who support the establishment of a new, higher standard in internet connectivity.
