MetLife Real Estate secured the LEED certification for three office buildings in the Waterford at Blue Lagoon office park in Miami. MetLife invested $3.5 million in the three office buildings, along with assistance from brokerage firm- Cushman & Wakefield.
The U.S. Green Building Council granted the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) designation for the office buildings at 6100, 6303 and 6505 Blue Lagoon Drive, which are branded as the Atrium buildings.
Tim Rivers, senior managing director of asset services for Cushman & Wakefield in Florida said in a statement, “A LEED designation is a tremendous differentiator for landlords looking to drive asset performance. MetLife Real Estate’s capital projects have helped the Atrium buildings further solidify their ability to compete with the newer Class A buildings in the Waterford at Blue Lagoon office park.”
