Postmedia Place won a prestigious award this week from BOMA Toronto for its environmentally friendly and sustainable approach to commercial real estate.
Greenrock Commercial Services’ Postmedia Place property at 365 Bloor St. E in Toronto was announced as the winner of the Innovative Excellence Award (less than 500,00 sq. ft category) at the Virtual CREST Awards on Thursday, November 5, 2020.
The award “recognizes those who have deployed creative and effective approaches, strategies, and technologies to achieve their performance and sustainability objectives,” according to BOMA Toronto.
“We take the environment seriously at Greenrock and aren’t afraid to experiment with new initiatives to reduce our carbon footprint,” explains Greenrock’s Chief Operating Officer Justin Taylor. “We’ve made significant investments throughout the years at Postmedia Place, such as retrofitting all tenant suites with energy-saving LED lighting, to ensure our day-to-day operations are as ‘green’ as possible.”
Since its inception in 2017, Postmedia Place has participated in BOMA Toronto’s Race2reduce program to improve energy efficiency and reduce operating costs. In 2018, Postmedia Place was awarded the first-ever Race2reduce Collaborative Excellence Award.
Postmedia Place sits in the top 25% of its building class with an Energy Star rating of 92%.
