(MINNEAPOLIS) – Hines, the international real estate firm, announced today that Wells Fargo Center has been designated a BOMA 360 Performance Building by the Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) International. The BOMA 360 Performance Program validates and recognizes commercial properties that demonstrate best practices in building operations and management.
Wells Fargo Center is a 1.2 million-square-foot, 57-story office building located in downtown Minneapolis.
Designed by Cesar Pelli & Associates, the property has been managed and leased by Hines since the firm developed it in 1987.
Wells Fargo Center General Property Manager Amy Wimmer said, “The programs, standards and reporting our staff accomplishes each day streamlined the BOMA 360 application process.”
“We are proud to designate Wells Fargo Center as a BOMA 360 Performance Building in recognition of the high standards the management team has achieved in every aspect of building operations and management,” said BOMA International Chair Ray H. Mackey, Jr., RPA, CPM, CCIM, partner and chief operating officer, Stream Realty Partners, L.P.
“By achieving the BOMA 360 designation for your building, you demonstrate to your owners, tenants, prospective tenants and the community that your property is being managed to the highest standards of excellence."
The BOMA 360 Performance Program is a groundbreaking building designation program that evaluates properties in six major areas:
building operations and management; life safety/security/risk management; training and education; energy; environment/sustainability; and tenant relations/community involvement. The BOMA 360 Performance Program takes a holistic approach to evaluating a building’s operations and management and benchmarks a building’s performance against industry standards.
The program comes at a critical time, as building owners and managers are looking to differentiate themselves in a demanding market.
