STAMFORD, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Point72 Asset Management, L.P. (Point72) is pleased to announce that their new offices at 55 Hudson Yards will become the first project in the Hudson Yards development pre-certified to meet the International WELL Building Standard (WELL). WELL is a new sustainable building standard that certifies a workplace that incorporates health and wellness into the design.
Point72 worked with A+I, the principal architect on the 55 Hudson Yards project, and M Moser, an architecture and design firm with a specialty in WELL consulting, to ensure the new office space implements design elements to maximize health, productivity, and comfort. WELL certification includes an assessment of the building’s clean air, clean water, healthy nutritional options, flexible office design, ergonomics, and acoustics.
Based on its success at Hudson Yards, Point72 expects to continue to partner with M Moser to further pursue WELL certifications at office spaces in Hong Kong and Stamford, Connecticut.
Gregory McGee, Global Head of Facilities at Point72, said, “We believe having a modern, innovative space designed to support the health and wellbeing of our employees is an important part of our Mission to be the industry’s premier asset management firm. Taking steps to make sure we meet the high standards set by WELL is just one way we are affirming that commitment.”
WELL merges best practices in design and construction with evidence-based medical and scientific research. WELL certification is third party administered through the International Well Building Institute (IWBI) in collaboration with Green Business Certification Inc. (GBCI), which also administers the global green building program, LEED.
