MetLife Real Estate secured the LEED certification for three office buildings in the Waterford at Blue Lagoon office park in Miami.

The U.S. Green Building Council granted the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) designation for the office buildings at 6100, 6303 and 6505 Blue Lagoon Drive, which are branded as the Atrium buildings.

With assistance from brokerage firm Cushman & Wakefield, MetLife Real Estate obtained the LEED designations after a $3.5 million investment in the three office buildings. The upgrades included energy-conserving roof replacements and the installation of new LED light fixtures, along with renovated restrooms and new marble floors in lobbies.

“A LEED designation is a tremendous differentiator for landlords looking to drive asset performance,” Tim Rivers, senior managing director of asset services for Cushman & Wakefield in Florida, said in a prepared statement. “MetLife Real Estate’s capital projects have helped the Atrium buildings further solidify their ability to compete with the newer Class A buildings” in the Waterford at Blue Lagoon office park.

Tenants of the Atrium buildings include Club Med, Discovery Channel Latin America, Johnson & Johnson, Loreal Retail Americas, Oracle, Regus, The Art of Shaving, and Zimmer Biomet.

The Cushman & Wakefield team of vice chairman Brian Gale,  managing directors Ryan Holtzman and Andrew Trench, and director Jeanette Mendoza handle leasing for the Atrium buildings on behalf of MetLife Real Estate.
