Monday Properties, a dynamic real estate investment firm and industry-leading developer, today announced that it has achieved Fitwel 2.1 certification at several premier properties in Arlington, Virginia, including 1000 and 1100 Wilson Boulevard, 1501 and 1515 Wilson Boulevard, 1101 Wilson Boulevard, and 1812 N. Moore Street. This recognition is another example of Monday Properties’ commitment to sustainability and wellness focused solutions for its tenants and visitors. Following the recent achievement of the Fitwel Viral Response Module (VRM) certification at the entity level—which focuses on strategies and policies designed to mitigate viral transmission through an office portfolio—Fitwel 2.1 is a recognition of evidence-based design and operations strategies that support the physical, mental, and social health of tenants.
Fitwel, created by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and U.S. General Services Administration with the Center for Active Design, is a rigorous, third-party healthy building certification that sets the industry standard for advancing human health through design and operational strategies. Fitwel addresses health as an interconnected system, scoring properties on categories such as well-being, community health, occupant safety, and physical activity.
“This recognition is a result of the best practices our operations team continues to carry out to enhance our buildings, and also highlights the execution of elements such as design and project delivery,” said Ginnette Brock, Vice President of Property Management at Monday Properties. “Receiving the Fitwel 2.1 certification in addition to earning the Fitwel VRM certification speaks to our continued efforts to create positive environments and shared spaces for our tenants.”
Monday Properties works tirelessly to reach the highest standards for occupant health and well-being. High walkability scores and access to commuter routes and public parks are some of the many criteria that need to be met for a property to receive the Fitwel 2.1 certification. Ensuring access to amenities such as walking trails, the Rosslyn Farmers Market, and Freedom Park is part of Monday Properties’ larger commitment to connecting tenants with regular outdoor health and wellness opportunities. With a wide range of Class A amenities, tenants also have access to indoor fitness facilities and multi-purpose collaboration rooms, such as the Elevation Conference Center and Lounge at 1812 N. Moore.
Through this designation, Monday Properties has established itself as a leader in promoting positive health outcomes for occupants. To learn more about the Fitwel 2.1 certification, visit https://www.fitwel.org/.
