1313 is now Wired Certified

Two McConnell Johnson Real Estate properties are the first to earn Digital Connectivity Distinction in Delaware.

McConnell Johnson Real Estate properties 1313 N. Market St., home of the tech incubator 1313 Innovation, and 1201 N. Market St., home of Espresso! Coffee Bar, are the first in Delaware to be designated as Wired Certified by WiredScore. The designation certifies that the buildings have met “the international standard for cutting-edge internet connectivity in office buildings.”

Both properties were designated as “Wired Certified Platinum,” joining some of the most famous buildings in the world, including The Empire State Building, Willis Tower in Chicago and the Shard in London.

The distinction was announced by Scott Johnson, McConnell Johnson partner, at a Tuesday news conference that included Governor John Carney, Wilmington Mayor Mike Purzycki and New Castle County Executive Matthew Meyer.

“The WiredScore Platinum independent certifications for 1201 and 1313 creates better transparency for those tenants that are dependent on the digital economy for future growth,” said Johnson in a statement.

Together, 1201 and 1313 N. Market St. have strategic access to domestic U.S. and trans-Atlantic routes. The State of Delaware, along with private investors, has invested substantially in Wilmington’s fiber-optic route expansion in recent years.

Market St. stand out as forward-thinking properties in the region and can clearly demonstrate a commitment to digital connectivity.”
