05/23/2001 Category: Miscellaneous

Mack-Cali Realty Corporation (NYSE: CLI) today announced that five of its office buildings in Westchester County, New York, have received the Energy Star label for energy efficiency from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).

The EPA/DOE Energy Star Label for buildings indicates excellence in a property's energy performance and efficiency. In 1999, Mack-Cali received one of the first Energy Star designations ever given to a commercial office building for its 20 Commerce Drive property in Cranford, New Jersey.

The five buildings receiving the new designation are:

  • One Executive Boulevard, a four-story, 112,000 square-foot class A office property, and Three Executive Boulevard, a four-story, 58,000 square-foot class A office property, both in South Westchester Executive Park in Yonkers.
  • One Water Street in White Plains, a 45,700 square-foot class A office building.
  • 200 White Plains Road at Talleyrand Office Park in Tarrytown, a seven-story, 89,000 square-foot class A office building.
  • 3 Skyline Drive in Hawthorne, a 119,000 square-foot class A office building managed by Mack-Cali.

    The buildings were recognized for energy-efficient systems and technologies such as T-8 fluorescent office lighting, variable speed drive systems, reflective double-pane glazed windows, high-pressure sodium exterior lighting, and building automation systems.

    Mitchell E. Hersh, chief executive officer of Mack-Cali, commented, "These Energy Star awards are excellent demonstrations of our commitment to energy-efficient operations and our overall energy management program."
