- Easy entrance to the building and garage via a mobile device.
- Luxer One package delivery service, enabling secure spaces for tenants to receive packages.
- A sensor that collects thorough data on light, noise, temperature, and air quality.
- A tenant app providing local weather, building services, and the ability to submit feedback.
- Access to diverse routes for telecommunications with three providers.
“RiverSouth provided us the ultimate opportunity to solidify our commitment to sustainability in a city that has set national standards for a sustainable built environment,” said Eric Herron, Managing Director of Development and Construction for Stream Austin. “The building’s operating system from KODE Labs will undoubtedly allow our tenants to achieve higher efficiencies that will affect their bottom line—energy costs. We are proud to have developed a building with technology that is unmatched in the commercial real estate world, and achieving the highest SmartScore rating available validates our commitment.
RiverSouth is the first building in Texas to achieve the SmartScore Platinum certification. WiredScore is currently working with over 20 buildings in North America for its SmartScore certification.
WiredScore’s SmartScore certification identifies best-in-class smart buildings that deliver an exceptional user experience, drive cost efficiency, deliver high standards of sustainability, promote healthy environments, and are considered future proof. At the platinum level, an asset must offer cutting-edge innovation and showcase processes and automation that deliver world-class outcomes for occupants and guests.
“Securing SmartScore Platinum is a landmark achievement for Stream, marking one of the most intelligent built-environments in the world,” said Katie Klein, North American Country Director at WiredScore. “The building’s current leasing velocity echoes the undeniable power of smart tech that occupiers no longer just crave but demand.”
In addition to its smart features, RiverSouth offers amenities including bike valet and storage, underground parking, a fitness studio with spa-inspired locker rooms and showers, ground-level restaurants and shopping, a seventh-floor green roof and amenity deck, and a rooftop lounge with an exclusive full-service bar.
RiverSouth recently opened with Baker Botts, Under Armour, AlertMedia, Goldman Sachs, and others calling the building home. For leasing information, contact Stream Austin at 512.481.3000.
