(Hollywood, CA, October 4, 2016) – In a town where all is glittery and gold, green certainly stands out. Situated in the heart of Hollywood, the Instrata Sunset Vine Tower is the Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM®)’s newest certified sustainable property.
The IREM® Certified Sustainable Property is the only sustainability certification program that focuses on the role of exceptional real estate management in green building performance. Available for office, multifamily, and retail properties, the certification provides properties with recognition for resource efficiency and environmental programs.
How Sunset Vine Tower Earned the Certification
To earn the certification, a property must first meet key baseline requirements. In addition, they also need to earn necessary points across energy, water, health, recycling, and purchasing categories. Tenants and residents increasingly associate environmental performance with quality. Therefore, the IREM® Certified Sustainable Property certification presents a prime opportunity to showcase quality, responsible real estate management.
“The team at Sunset Vine Tower is dedicated to sustainability. It shows in their recent achievement of the IREM® CSP designation. I am proud of their hard work and continued efforts to operate this beautiful high-end, high-rise community in an efficient and responsible manner,” says Alliance Vice President of Corporate Social Responsibility, Kelly Vickers.
“The concept of green buildings has come a long way, from vague ideas of changing out lightbulbs to a corporate imperative, one that transcends energy efficiency to embrace health and wellness,” states Christopher Mellen, CPM®, ARM®, IREM® President, The Simon Companies, Braintree, Mass. “We congratulate Alliance on their initiative in achieving this certification at the Sunset Vine Tower.”
Sustainability is not just about good design. It’s about asset performance that results from quality property management. Moreover, Alliance is proud to embody that daily.
