Mack-Cali’s Harborside Plaza 5 earns Wired score Platinum Certification
Edison, NJ — Mack-Cali Realty Corporation announced that Harborside Plaza 5, a class A office tower on the Jersey City Waterfront, earned Platinum-level Wired Certification from WiredScore. The criteria used to award the property with this honor include achieving exceptional ratings for choice, redundancy, resilience, flexibility, and infrastructure. Harborside Plaza 5 joins two other Mack-Cali properties in Jersey City – Harborside Plaza 2 and 101 Hudson St. with this distinction.
“In today’s business environment, tenants, especially in the TAMI (Technology, Advertising, Media, and Information) sector, need to know that they will have access to the best Internet providers who offer the fastest connection speeds,” said Christopher DeLorenzo, executive vice president of leasing, Mack-Cali. “This distinction validates our commitment to providing state-of-the-art technology that meets the needs of a changing tenant base and provides protection against outages and business disruption.” Platinum-level Wired Certification guarantees the maximum level of choice of Internet service providers, the quality and speed of connections, and access to provider cabling in the building. The final factor measured was the building’s readiness to accept new technologies. Wired Certification is an official set of standards developed and approved by a New York City-appointed advisory board and is now used to assess commercial buildings around the country. Harborside Plaza 5 is part of Mack-Cali’s signature Jersey City Waterfront complex that comprises office, multi-family residential, restaurants, and retail space. The 977,225 s/f property boasts unparalleled Manhattan skyline views coupled with convenient access to regional transportation options, including the PATH train, Hudson-Bergen Light Rail, and ferry service. As part of Mack-Cali’s three-year strategic plan, the entire Harborside complex will undergo a $25 million repositioning—adding new retail, fitness centers, and food concepts, including restaurants and bars. The reimagined Harborside will also include incubator and communal workspace, and capitalize on its state-of-the-art technology infrastructure.
