07/23/2010 Category: Miscellaneous

Edison, New Jersey—July 23, 2010—Mack-Cali Realty Corporation (NYSE: CLI) today announced the awarding of two prestigious ENERGY STAR designations. These awards, given by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Energy, are the national symbol for superior energy performance. The awards were given to Mack-Cali’s twin six-story, class A, 170,554-square-foot properties located at 555 Taxter Road and 565 Taxter Road, in Taxter Corporate Park, Elmsford, New York.

Commercial buildings that earn the ENERGY STAR use an average of 35 percent less energy than typical buildings and also release 35 percent less carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. Only commercial buildings and industrial plants in the top 25 percent of facilities in the nation for energy efficiency qualify for this rating.

555 and 565 Taxter Road were recognized for the ENERGY STAR award based, in part, through the use of energy efficient lighting, building physical system inspections, careful programming and monitoring of the automated building management system, ongoing preventative maintenance measures, and the minimization of mechanical heating and cooling of the buildings through the use of outside air.

Mitchell E. Hersh, Mack-Cali president and chief executive officer, commented, “We are pleased to add these buildings to our growing list of properties that have earned the ENERGY STAR. We remain committed to energy-efficient operations and expect to add more properties to this prestigious list.”
