CIM Group, a community-focused real estate and infrastructure owner, operator, lender and developer has announced three of its properties have earned the UL Verified Healthy Building Mark for Indoor Air. These properties include:
- 55 Hawthorne, an 11-story, 136,000-square-foot office building in San Francisco, California
- LoDo Towers, two 16- and 13-story office towers totaling more than 420,000 square feet in Denver, Colorado
- and Eastside Village, a 95,000-square-foot office building in Austin, Texas.
Developed by UL, the program aims to provide credible, third-party verification for buildings seeking to demonstrate indoor air quality (IAQ) excellence. By achieving the Healthy Building Mark, these properties have demonstrated their commitment and excellence in creating a healthier building environment for tenants.
In earning the mark, all three properties participated in a thorough evaluation process, which included and audit, on-site inspections and IAQ testing, which included, among other assessments, measurement of total volatile organic compounds, formaldehyde, ozone, and a mold and moisture inspection. As part of the program, the properties will undergo an annual reassessment coupled with mid-year surveillance to maintain participation.
The tiered UL Verified Healthy Building program verifies that an indoor space achieves exceptional indoor environmental performance based on a range of criteria, with Indoor Air being one mark in particular.
“We are proud to receive the UL Verified Healthy Building Mark for Indoor Air for these three properties, an accomplishment that demonstrates our ongoing commitment to providing quality indoor environments that benefit the health and wellness of our tenants,” said Bethany Chang, Managing Director, On-Site Property Management.
“By earning the UL Verified Healthy Building Mark, CIM Group has taken an important step in advancing indoor air quality,” said Sean McCrady, director of UL’s Asset and Sustainability Performance, Real Estate Properties group. “This is a critically important effort as stakeholders from investors to tenants and regulatory bodies prioritize sustainability and wellness in buildings.”
