We are deeply saddened to confirm the passing of our Chairman and CEO Doug Shorenstein.
Doug had been ill for some time and fought a courageous battle with his illness. Through it all, he maintained a positive and hopeful outlook, and he remained steadfastly focused on serving his family, his colleagues and his community.
We will miss him dearly.
Shorenstein operates on the principle that its tenants are not only leasing space in Shorenstein buildings, but are also seeking a broad range of occupancy services to support and enhance their core business operations. Delivery of a physical product that is maintained and operated to the highest industry standard is only the beginning. Shorenstein strives to remain abreast of its tenants’ businesses in order to meet their current needs, anticipate their future requirements and be in a position to work cooperatively with them to respond to unanticipated developments.
Shorenstein’s experienced asset management, leasing, property management, and construction professionals think and act as first-tier service providers. All of Shorenstein’s employees understand that it is their job to ensure that all Shorenstein properties offer the highest quality business environments and occupancy services in their respective marketplaces.
Shorenstein believes that the consistently high occupancy levels in the Shorenstein portfolio is the strongest testament to the validity of the Shorenstein operating philosophy and the best evidence of the successful implementation of that philosophy.
Shorenstein is strongly committed to achieving sustainability, including carbon reduction and energy efficiency, for the benefit of investors, tenants and the environment.
The company’s G.R.E.E.N. Committee (Green Real Estate Environments Now!) meets regularly to discuss and evaluate potential new initiatives in sustainability and energy management, and to evaluate the effectiveness of existing programs. The G.R.E.E.N. Committee also provides tenant education through sponsorship of events, dissemination of bulletins and individual meetings.
Shorenstein is a participant in industry-leading national programs such as ENERGY STAR® (www.energystar.gov), LEED® (www.usgbc.org), and BOMA’s 7 Point Challenge (www.boma.org), and also works closely with janitorial, engineering, architectural, and construction firms as well as other vendors and suppliers to identify and implement sustainability best practices across the portfolio.
