JERSEY CITY, NJ — Mack-Cali Realty Corporation announced that its class A office properties at Harborside Plaza 2 and 101 Hudson Street on the Jersey City Waterfront have achieved best-in-class Platinum-level Wired Certification by WiredScore for their technological superiority. These properties mark the first Wired Certified buildings in Jersey City and two of the three Platinum-level Certified buildings in New Jersey.
Harborside Plaza 2 is a 761,200 s/f office property and 101 Hudson Street, located just around the corner, is an over 1.2 million s/f office property. These are prime examples of the superior connectivity featured in all of the buildings that comprise the 4.3 million s/f Harborside. Mack-Cali’s Waterfront properties offer inspirational working places and aspirational living spaces, all in an interconnected 24/7, office, retail, and residential environment on the Hudson River Waterfront. Currently undergoing an over $15 million renovation project to the properties’ indoor and outdoor common areas, Harborside offers businesses six state-of-the-art office buildings featuring contemporary design, easy access to retail and dining options, and the most spectacular views of the Manhattan skyline and Statue of Liberty.
The certification was granted based on choice, infrastructure, redundancy, resiliency, and flexibility of broadband offerings. Wired Certification is an official set of standards developed and approved by a New York City-appointed Advisory Board for assessing internet services in commercial buildings.
The Platinum-level Wired Certification guarantees the maximum level of choice when selecting an Internet service provider, full distribution of fiber connectivity throughout the building, best-in-class infrastructure to ensure protection against service interruptions, and administrative best practices to streamline tenants’ ability to get connected.
Mitchell Hersh, president and chief executive officer, said, “These impressive certifications validate our commitment to bringing tenants technologically advanced buildings with a myriad of telecommunications services and choices. It continues to play a large part in our ongoing strategic initiative to provide our office tenants with an unparalleled office experience.”
“Certainly this distinction gives these properties unique appeal for businesses looking for smart office space,” said Peter Turchin, vice chairman, CBRE Group, Inc., the leasing agent for Harborside. “Even the most sophisticated of tenants can rest assured that these buildings meet the connectivity needs of the growing Technology, Advertising, Media, and Information communities.”
