OUR BEWELL™ PROMISE - Hero Iamge

THE METROPOLIS BEWELL™ PROMISE

SAFETY INITIATIVE


Metropolis is committed to health and wellness throughout its portfolio. The safety and wellness of our building communities including tenants, staff, and visitors are top priorities and are the cornerstone of the Metropolis BeWell™ Promise. As a testament to our continued efforts to implement a best-inclass environment, Metropolis, together with our management company JLL, partnered with Fitwel, Underwriters Laboratories (UL) and the US Green Building Council (USGBC) to independently validate that the build’s operational strategies are optimized to enhance building occupants health and wellness.


FITWEL CERTIFIED

Fitwel is the world’s leading certification system committed to building health. Fitwel is implementing a vision for a healthier future where all buildings and communities are enhanced to strengthen health and well-being. Fitwel was created by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and U.S. General Services Administration. NBC Tower received its Fitwel certification for health and wellness strategies that positively impact the health of our building occupants.



UL VERIFIED

Metropolis also collaborated with UL as an early adopter of their new voluntary program for real estate owners who want to demonstrate their commitment to healthy indoor environments through an extensive process of indoor air quality (IAQ) testing and assessment. NBC Tower proudly received its UL Verified Healthy Building Mark for Indoor Air quality. This achievement is a significant milestone in our BeWell™ Promise to deliver an indoor environment with superior air quality that supports health and well-being.


LEED GOLD CERTIFIED

USGBC launched new LEED Safety First Credits in 2020 as part of their Healthy Economy Strategy to address concerns related to the pandemic and to assist with building re-entry. As a result, NBC Tower proactively sought LEED Safety First credits to demonstrate its excellence though it is not scheduled for LEED Gold recertification until 2022. We are proud to announce that we also earned the LEED Safety First Credit for Cleaning and Disinfecting that validates that the building’s best practices align with public health and industry guidelines for cleaning and disinfecting.
