Stamford, CT According to Rubenstein Partners, L.P. (including its affiliates) and its joint venture partner George Comfort & Sons, the Shippan Landing waterfront office building campus was awarded the Stamford 2019 Change Makers Energy Efficiency Award/Commercial Building by The Business Council of Fairfield County.
The Stamford 2019 Change Makers Awards recognize local projects that have excelled in the areas of energy conservation, sustainable transportation, and resiliency within the 2030 District, a collaborative local community of high-performance buildings located in downtown. Shippan Landing, a 788,000 s/f, six-building waterfront commercial campus located on Shippan Point and its senior property manager, Andrew Sufian, were recognized by the Business Council of Fairfield County for significant energy reductions made at the property throughout 2019.
The Shippan Landing site underwent a high-efficiency rooftop unit replacement project that, according to Eversource, is saving 3.6 million lifetime kilowatt hours and 84,516 lifetime CCF of natural gas, equivalent to 3,146 metric tons of carbon dioxide. The remainder of the Shippan Landing 2019 energy efficiency projects, which include a new building management system, additional roof replacements and variable frequency drives installations, will save another 1.4 million lifetime kilowatt hours and 19,668 lifetime CCF of natural gas. Upon completion, the property will realize a total equivalent savings of 4,245 metric tons of carbon dioxide, the equivalent of taking 901 passenger cars off the road for one year.
“We’ve made energy efficiency a high priority and key operational strategy at Shippan Landing and we’re pleased The Business Council of Fairfield County has recognized our efforts,” said Sufian. “More energy reducing enhancements are planned for the site in the coming years as we continue to do our part towards making a brighter energy future for the Stamford community. Rubenstein Partners and George Comfort & Sons’ efforts to improve energy efficiency are a part of a $40 million capital improvement campaign that we anticipate will transform Shippan Landing into a reimagined trophy quality waterfront campus. Additional improvements at the property will include a new amenity center overlooking Long Island Sound, new lobbies, and the creation of outdoor collaborative areas.”
The Shippan Landing waterfront property is located on the waterfront and Long Island Sound at Shippan Point. The campus features amenities and views of Stamford Harbor and the Long Island Sound.
