Two downtown Wilmington office buildings are the first in the state to earn Wired Certification, the international standard for cutting-edge internet connectivity in office buildings.
Two office towers in the business district—1201 and 1313 North Market Street—have now joined the more than 1,700 Wired Certified buildings worldwide that offer top-notch tech capabilities, which legislators and business leaders feel is important to the city’s growth and ability to attract new tenants.
Governor John Carney, Wilmington Mayor Mike Purzycki and New Castle County Executive Matthew Meyer joined Scott Johnson, McConnell Johnson Real Estate Partner, for today’s announcement.
Both of the North Market Street office towers were achieved WiredScored’s certification’s highest level — Wired Certified Platinum. “We are extremely proud of the work that went into the technological infrastructure in these two buildings and their readiness to adapt to emerging technologies,” said Johnson. “Many of our tenants are dependent on an uninterrupted digital experience for future growth,” he said.
“As the first properties in the state of Delaware to pursue and earn Wired Certification, 1201 and 1313 North Market Street stand out as forward-thinking properties in the region and can clearly demonstrate a commitment to digital connectivity,” said Arie Barendrecht, CEO and founder of WiredScore.
