C&K Properties announced that 2 Gateway Center, its Class A office tower in Newark’s Central Business District, has achieved best-in-class Platinum certification by WiredScore for its technological superiority.
The certification marks the first WiredScore Platinum award to a commercial building in the State of New Jersey.
The certification process, which includes a full building audit by a team of technicians, was granted based on choice, infrastructure, redundancy, resiliency, and flexibility of broadband offerings.
WiredScore measures these factors using an official set of standards developed and approved by an NYCEDC-appointed Advisory Board for assessing internet service in office buildings.
WiredScore is an advisory board that oversees WiredNYC, an initiative of the Bloomberg Administration that aims to bring transparency to quality and availability of broadband connectivity in office buildings, and is fully endorsed by 13 of New York City’s most prestigious real estate and technology development firms. WiredScore’s certification process helps to differentiate and identify the region’s best connected buildings to brokers and prospective tenants.
“WiredScore’s Platinum rated buildings provide the infrastructure for an increasing number of companies that depend on superior connectivity,” said Ben Korman, owner of C&K Properties.
“Among 2 Gateway’s various location benefits and competitive incentives packages, its technological advantages truly provide a leg up in the business landscape.”
A Platinum 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.
Dudley Ryan, Senior Vice President at CBRE, the exclusive broker for 2 Gateway, said, “Providing a responsive, reliable and technologically advanced experience for our tenants is at the heart of what we do at 2 Gateway. Achieving this certification is validation of our ongoing commitment to those principles.”
