WiredScore, the certification program launched by Jared Kushner, Michael Bloomberg and the New York City Economic Development Corporation that identifies and certifies buildings with the most cutting-edge internet connectivity, has announced that Alhambra Towers in Coral Gables has achieved Platinum Wired Certification, making it the first building in Coral Gables and the second in Florida to receive the coveted Platinum ranking.
Alhambra Towers now joins a distinctive group of technologically advanced buildings around the world, including the Empire State Building and the Willis Tower, among many others.
To achieve Wired Certification, properties must meet a rigorous set of standards developed in conjunction with the top minds in the telecommunication and commercial real estate industries. Alhambra Towers was able to meet these standards and earn the highest obtainable distinction of Platinum due to its five fiber providers, which ensure business-grade internet access; placement of its telecom equipment, which is protected from possible flood damage; and fixed wireless connectivity, which guarantees an independent internet line, amongst other features.
“Our tenant’s reliance on the most advanced building technologies is a crucial element of their competitive advantage,” says W. Allen Morris, Chairman and CEO of the Allen Morris Company. “We’ve always had tremendous pride in our technology offering and energy and environmental design. We built the first LEED Certified commercial office building in North Florida, the first LEED Certified log structure in America and we are developing other sustainable projects that meet Energy Star or L.E.E.D. certification standards. Now, to be the first building in Coral Gables to be Wired Certified with a Platinum rating further validates our efforts.”
“Reliable Internet connectivity is a critical feature for businesses across sectors looking to boast an efficient workflow and compete in a global economy,” said Arie Barendrecht, CEO and co-founder of WiredScore. “The rapid growth of Wired Certification in Florida is a testament to the increasing demand for the most advanced tech capabilities in office space, and buildings that can meet these needs will gain a competitive edge in attracting and retaining the world’s most sought-after tenants.”
As one of the Miami area’s most distinctive commercial buildings, Alhambra Towers is a class A-plus luxury office building featuring Spanish-inspired architecture and a comprehensive suite of world-class amenities. For more information visit http://alhambratowers.com/.
