NEWARK-Two Gateway Center has earned the US Environmental Protection Agency’s Energy Star label for its superior energy efficiency and environmental protection. Dudley Ryan, senior vice president at CB Richard Ellis, is the exclusive leasing agent for the building. Two Gateway is owned by New York City-based development and management company C & K Properties.

“As a national symbol for energy efficiency in America, earning an Energy Star label is a great accomplishment and something that is not easily achieved,” says Dudley Ryan, senior vice president at exclusive leasing agent CB Richard Ellis. He tells GlobeSt.com that Two Gateway earned this label by using 35% less energy and generating one-third less carbon dioxide. “Given the increased concern about the financial and economic risks associated with world climate changes, this accomplishment speaks to the work that Two Gateway Center has put into making this building so eco-friendly.”

Built over 35 years ago, the 832,000-square-foot class A office is an entirely electric building. “In order to be eligible for an Energy Star label, some significant renovations were required to make the facility more energy efficient,” says Cushman and Wakefield’s Eugene Zelicskovics, who handles the property management for the building. Among the upgrades were new lights and ballasts, motors and elevators, as well as the building’s HVAC equipment. In addition, a new building automation system was installed, motion sensors were put into all offices and VFD’s were built on the facility’s HVAC system. Together, Zelicskovics says, “these upgrades have reduced the building’s operating expenses by 20% to 25%, with a majority of these investments having less than a three-year payback.”

Located in the heart of Newark’s central business district, Two Gateway features panoramic views of both the Newark and Manhattan skylines and offers tenants a first-floor retail strip that includes banks, a hotel, a fitness center, salons, retail establishments and restaurants.

While the building is mostly leased, CBRE tells GlobeSt.com that there is an upcoming opportunity for approximately 40,000 square feet available for lease.
