WiredScore, which celebrated its official Atlanta launch at Atlanta Tech Village this month, announced its first Wired Certified properties in the city. Wired Certification is a commercial real estate rating system that empowers landlords to understand, improve, and promote their buildings’ digital infrastructure. Of the properties included, Cushman & Wakefield leases and/or manages five on the list, including Ponce City Market (lease), Colony Square (lease), Piedmont Center I-IV (manage), 271 17th Street (lease/manage) and Resurgens Plaza (lease/manage).
“Connectivity is a fundamental resource for businesses to operate successfully,” said JD Jeske, WiredScore Head of Atlanta in a Bisnow article. “Wired Certification demonstrates that Atlanta’s commercial real estate assets have advanced connectivity infrastructure by providing transparent, globally recognized ratings that help attract and retain businesses.”
Worldwide, more than 1,400 properties in 158 cities, totaling 400 million square feet, have achieved Wired Certification.
According to WiredScore, “Internet is among the top three most important factors for tenants who are searching for office space, along with cost and location. Until now there has been very little information available to tenants about the quality of internet connectivity in office spaces. Wired Certification provides that transparency and access to information to tenants.”
