Coretrust’s FourFortyFour Tower in Downtown LA Achieves UL Verified Healthy Building Mark for Indoor Environment

June 10, 2022

Coretrust Capital Partners today announced that FourFortyFour South Flower, its 48-story iconic tower in downtown Los Angeles, has achieved a Verified Healthy Building Mark for Indoor Environment from UL, a global safety science leader. The UL Verified Healthy Building Mark signals that FourFortyFour performs in five critical areas — air, water, hygiene, light and acoustics.

One year ago, in April 2021, FourFortyFour became the first building globally to earn the UL Verified Healthy Building Mark for Indoor Air and Water.

“We are pleased that our efforts to provide safer and healthier healthy workplaces have been recognized once again by this global safety science leader,” said Thomas S. Ricci, founder and Managing Principal of Coretrust. “We have implemented multiple state-of-the-art technologies for cleanest air and water quality, installed the latest building infrastructure for energy efficiency and carbon reduction, and adopted stringent operating controls, all to support the well-being and confidence of those who occupy and visit FourFortyFour.”

“UL’s Verified Healthy Building program communicates those indoor spaces provide a healthy environment for occupants in five areas: indoor air quality, water quality, building hygiene, lighting and acoustics. Once achieved, it’s a distinction that demonstrates building owners, managers and corporations are committed to a built environment that supports occupant health, well-being and comfort, backed by UL’s globally recognized expertise,” said Sean McCrady, director, Asset and Sustainability, Real Estate and Properties at UL. “By achieving the UL Verified Healthy Building Mark for Indoor Environment, Coretrust has demonstrated its commitment to providing a healthy workplace for current and prospective building tenants. This is one of many ways that UL can help building owners, property managers and corporations earn trust from tenants and employees.”
