New York, NY (PRUnderground) April 7th, 2016
The Bromley Companies is pleased to announced the completion of several significant upgrades to its technology infrastructure at 120 and 122 Fifth Avenue in New York City.
Both 120 and 122 Fifth Avenue have been certified “Gold” by WiredScore . The WiredScore Gold certification provides tenants with access to best-in-class internet providers, as well as full distribution of fiber connectivity throughout the building ensuring that tenants are protected from service interruptions. Today, tenants at 120 and 122 Fifth Avenue have access to unique sources of high-speed fiber or copper connectivity from six internet services providers which include Verizon, Time Warner Cable, TW Telecom, Megapath, Lightpath, and Windstream. The building’s infrastructure is well prepared for the unexpected; it has multiple points of entry for connection diversity in case one entry is damaged, and dedicated spaces to protect telecom equipment.
In addition to achieving Gold certification for connectivity, 120 Fifth Avenue has rolled out a wireless building and elevator access system which can be activated using any smartphone or Apple Watch. The system provides tenants 24 hour access via Bluetooth to the building lobby as well as elevator access to tenant floors. The app on tenant phones or Apple Watch makes it easier to roll out and manage system for tenants and simple and secure for building employees to use. The Bluetooth based system is one of the first deployments in New York City of the technology of an office building.
“While technology and media companies are attracted to the high ceilings, historical character of 120 and 122 Fifth Avenue, we have made these significant investments to improve the technology in the buildings to meet the demanding needs of our tenants,” said Michael Borrero, Vice President of Property Management of Bromley.
These significant infrastructure investments have paid off, attracting a mix of Fortune 500 and emerging tenants at the buildings including the corporate headquarters of Barnes & Noble Inc as well as officers for Carters/Oshkosh, Chanel and Centric Digital among other industry leaders.
“As a leading global digital consulting firm, Centric Digital is pleased to have recently doubled our office space in 120 Fifth Avenue to accommodate our rapid growth” said Brian Manning, President and Co-Founder of Centric Digital. “One of the reasons we decided to increase our presence at the building was the commitment of ownership to provide the technology infrastructure necessary to support our business. From the multiple providers of high speed internet connectivity to the recently launched smartphone enabled building and elevator access system, 120 Fifth Avenue provides us with infrastructure we need to satisfy our intensive corporate requirements and future expansion”
