Miami Becomes First City in the U.S. to Achieve the WELL Health-Safety Rating and Advocates Others Do the Same

Miami is now the first city in the U.S. to achieve the WELL Health-Safety Rating across a large set of signature municipal buildings, including City Hall.

This forward-thinking accomplishment cements Miami and Mayor Francis X. Suarez’s commitment to supporting healthy buildings in cities.

Mayor Suarez recently leveraged his leadership role as President of the U.S. Conference of Mayors to encourage fellow mayors to join him in doing more to prioritize indoor health and deploy a ‘people-first’ approach to city buildings. The 2022 Conference of Mayors, which hosts hundreds of U.S. mayors annually, kicked off with an insightful conversation between Mayor Suarez and Paul Scialla, International WELL Building Institute (IWBI) Founder and Delos Founder and CEO, focusing on how cities can leverage WELL to achieve their healthy building goals.

Watch the full conversation below.

Ranked as the healthiest city in America, Miami continues to walk the walk and set the trend we hope Canadian cities will follow to help build healthier and safer communities for all. Canada’s private sector has already been taking strides in the adoption of WELL programs with over 100 million square feet enrolled and with many leading organizations in the process of certifying or rating their portfolios. Greybrook was among the early Canadian adopters to achieve the WELL Health-Safety Rating, along with high-profile organizations like Scotiabank Arena and Brookfield Properties.

“Together with our partners we are here to support in taking the necessary steps to ensure their building environments are meeting the highest health and safety standards that have tremendous benefit for their customers, employees, residents, and stakeholders. We hope to see Toronto and other Canadian cities follow Miami’s great example!” said Sasha Cucuz, CEO, Greybrook Securities Inc.

At Greybrook we are proud of our partnership with Delos and IWBI and look forward to doing our part in helping Canadian cities, public and private institutions, and real estate owners “put people first”.
