In recognition of substantial efforts to reduce energy waste and emissions, one of Streitwise’s properties in St. Louis, Streitwise Plaza, has been recognized by CBRE as a Climate Change Champion in 2019.
In total, only 21 U.S. properties were recognized for achieving a 10% or greater year-over-year increase in their ENERGY STAR score, with a score of 75 or higher. As a result of more efficient energy usage, we have been able to decrease on-site energy costs, which translates directly to our portfolio’s bottom line.
Ideally located near various local amenities and with a resilient rent roll that has weathered the pandemic, Streitwise Plaza is well-positioned for the future of urban-suburban tenant demand.
