mental Protection Agency’s (EPA) prestigious Energy Star recognition, the national symbol for superior energy efficiency and environmen- tal protection. The site also won The Office Building of the Year (TOBY) from the Southern Connecticut Build- ing Owners and Managers Association (BOMA ) in the 500,000-1,000,000 s/f, multi- tenant category. “We are very proud of the green team’s initiatives that have been implemented at 400 Atlantic that contribute to its LEED Silver certification,” said Landis. “We believe 400 Atlantic is a model for other property owners who are seek- ing to make their buildings more green.” Some of those initiatives include: • Exterior enhancements in- cluded an update of the park- ing structure lighting systems and installing new digital time clocks that adjust the lighting to run a minimal amount of lights during working hours. • Installing electric car charging stations and reserved parking for hybrid vehicles in the parking structure. • Reworking the storm wa- ter irrigation system to inter- cept and redirect storm water from the third floor plaza to fill the 5,000-gallon storage unit, which also prevents additional run off from contaminating the

ground water supply and con- taminants from entering the nearby Long Island sound. • Replacing light bulbs in the building and installing oc- cupancy sensors in all offices and conference rooms that are outfitted with a switch. Stamford’s premier busi- ness address, the 15-story, 500,000 s/f office building was originally conceived and con- structed as Champion Paper’s world headquarters. High- lighted by a dramatic lobby entrance and public spaces, expansive 37,000 s/f highly flexible floor plates, elegant in- terior staircases and sweeping views of Long Island Sound, the building is home to such high-quality corporations as UBS, American Express, The Santander Group and Harman Kardon. 400 Atlantic is located just 35 minutes from Manhattan and is across the street from the Stamford Metro-North Rail Station and adjacent to I-95. Each of the building’s light flooded floors presents an opportunity for eight spa- cious corner offices, while the center core construction allows for the most efficient space planning.Tenants also benefit from the presence of numerous on-site amenities, including an indoor connected garage, in-building fitness center, and full-service lobby cafeteria. n
