One Forty West is the first residential tower with a WiredScore certificate
The residential and hotel high-rise One Forty West owned by Commerz Real in Frankfurt’s Senckenberg quarter has been awarded the WiredScore certificate in platinum. It is thus the first of its kind in Germany to receive such a certificate.
[Translate to English:]
The WiredScore certification is a rating system for real estate which ensures transparency with respect to the digital infrastructure and connectivity of buildings and makes these aspects comparable. There are five certification stages: Under certification, Certified, Silver, Gold, Platinum. They are based on an internationally standardised combination of a rating system and various minimum criteria for each certification stage that can be amended in line with local market conditions. In addition to internet connectivity, the system stability, user experience and mobile telephony, as well as the flexibility of the building for new technologies, are assessed. Before being awarded a platinum certificate a building has to attain at least 90 from 100 points in the rating system. Thus the connectivity has to offer tenants a seamless user experience thanks to adequate mobile phone coverage and several competing telecommunications network providers, as well as sufficient flexibility and capacity to keep pace with advances in technologies and applications.
The 140-metre-high One Forty West accommodates a four-star-plus Meliá hotel with 430 rooms and 187 condominiums on 41 floors and an area of 52,000 square metres. It has been part of the portfolio of Commerz Real’s open-ended real estate fund Hausinvest since its completion in 2021.
