Crown’s Markham Portfolio Receives the Donald Cousens Conservation & Environmental Leadership Award

Donald Cousens

Crown is happy to announce we have received the Donald Cousens Conservation & Environmental Leadership Award at the Annual Markham Board of Trade Business Excellence Awards. Our Markham office was recognized for managing an environmentally friendly portfolio, consisting of Allstate Corporate Centre (11, 15, 19 and 27 Allstate Parkway), 101 McNabb Street and 675 Cochrane Drive. We took home this prestigious award for demonstrating leadership in environmental conservation and sustainability measures.

We believe office space is more than square footage. Always striving to further reduce our environmental footprint, Crown has implemented new, sustainable initiatives within our Markham portfolio such as urban beehives, utilizing strategies to reduce carbon emissions through Smart Commute carpooling programs, achieving energy savings through LED lighting retrofits and installing solar panels to name a few. In addition to our properties being LEED and BOMA Best certified, we are especially proud of our corporate social responsibility efforts. Our Crown Eco Teams focus on discussing best practices, implementing eco-friendly strategies and promoting good health and the wellbeing of our tenants (e.g. creating park-like outdoor spaces and providing WorkFit by Crown fitness centres at no added cost to tenants). Our team is making a positive contribution to the greater community by hosting events such as Adopt A Park, clothing and food drives and tree planting events, which help us maintain our position as a sector leading firm in the commercial real estate industry.
