RESPONSIBLE TO ALL OUR STAKEHOLDERS
Concentrated in strategic Central Business District locations in New York, San Francisco, Washington D.C., and Boston, our properties offer the top locations, boutique style, and exceptional service and amenities that today’s top companies want.
At each of these properties, and in each neighborhood where we operate, we take great care to ensure that we live as a good corporate citizen within the community. We operate efficiently, responsibly, and always in the best interest of our stakeholders, because this not only benefits the environment and the communities in which we operate, it creates long-term value for our stakeholders, investors, and our business. Our energy-efficient and sustainable building operations benefit our tenants and foster trust among all our stakeholders, differentiating our brand and reputation in the marketplace.
