IRONSIDE NEWARK BUILDING RECEIVES TOP TECH CERTIFICATION AHEAD OF NEXT YEAR’S OPENING
September 13, 2017 | Brick City Live
The renovation of the building that will become Ironside Newark hasn’t yet been completed, but that hasn’t stopped the structure from winning a top technology designation.
The building at Mulberry Street and Edison Place, which will be an anchor in the Mulberry Commons development downtown, has achieved a Wired Certified Platinum designation from Wirescore in recognition of its next-age building technology. Ironside Newark is the first redevelopment project in the state to earn the certification, which recognizes the degree of a building’s connectivity, technological infrastructure and readiness to facilitate emerging technologies.
Ironside Newark, which will include loft-style office space on its upper floors and retail space at street level, has access to the network of fiber optic cable that runs beneath Newark’s streets. The internet speeds enabled by Newark’s infrastructure make buildings that leverage it, like Ironside Newark, particularly attractive for tenants with technology-driven needs.
Ironside Newark construction in progress in the summer of 2017. The building is scheduled to open in the fall of 2018.
Michael Sommer, Edison Properties’ Executive Vice President of Development, remarked that the designation, along with the building’s location at the crossroads of mass transit, make it an attractive destination for technology-minded companies. “This designation clearly communicates the unique technological advantages that tenants will benefit from at our building,”he said, according to a statement.
Construction on Ironside Newark is already underway, and the building’s opening is scheduled for the fall of 2018.
