Twelve01West Earns First WiredScore Certification in Fulton Market
One of Fulton Market’s newest developments, Twelve01West, is recognized for its infrastructure that meets the needs of the futur
CHICAGO, February 28, 2019 – On behalf of McCaffery Interests and New York Life, JLL’s Agency Leasing Team today announced that Twelve01West has secured WiredScore certification at the Silver level for best-in-class connectivity and digital infrastructure. Twelve01West joins an elite group of less than 25 downtown Chicago properties who have achieved WiredScore certification, the first and only certification process in commercial real estate that identifies strong internet connectivity. It’s also the first office building in the Fulton Market area to earn WiredScore certification.
Owned by McCaffery Interests and leased by JLL, Twelve01West is a seven-story 135,000 square-foot Class A office and retail development. Committed to providing connectivity of the highest standard for its tenants, Twelve01West partnered with WiredScore from the ground up to plan infrastructure that meets the needs of the future.
The building design incorporates a dedicated and protected path from the street for incoming service provider cabling, along with a dedicated, secure and climate-controlled space for service provider equipment. There’s free WiFi in the building’s common areas and space on the roof for tenants to install communications equipment. The building also set aside space for the integration of an in-building mobile signal solution.
“This development team understands that in today’s office environment best-in-class connectivity is critical to every aspect of building management and supporting the needs of tenants,” said Brad Despot, Managing Director for JLL and leasing agent for Twelve01West. “McCaffery and New York Life have aimed for excellence at Twelve01West from day one, and it’s why they partnered with WiredScore from the beginning to set standards high. With the achievement of Silver Wired Certification, and the first for Fulton Market, Twelve01West is prepared to serve the digital needs of innovative companies that this area continues to attract.”
Just last month Twelve01West announced Coca-Cola signed a lease and will be moving its Chicago corporate office to the Fulton Market neighborhood. Lead developer McCaffery is also moving its 12,000 square-foot headquarters to Twelve01West.
“Leasing activity is very strong with more tenant deal announcements coming soon”, said Despot.
WiredScore is the pioneer behind the internationally-acclaimed Wired Certification standard, which evaluates and distinguishes best-in-class Internet connectivity in commercial buildings. Trusted by tenants the world over, the Wired Certification seal signifies that buildings have been independently evaluated and guaranteed to provide Internet infrastructure that today’s businesses require to thrive.
