Cherry Tree Corporate Center Designs Plan To Go Green
May 02, 2014 12:51PM
In support of the Sustainability Plan for 2018 set forth by the Camden County board of freeholders, the Cherry Tree Corporate Center has designed a plan to go green. The state-of-the-art, 150,000-square-foot office building kicked off a gas conversion and installation of a new heating, ventilation and air conditioning system with a ribbon cutting on April 28, attended by Mayor Chuck Kahn. When the project is complete, the center will decrease its dependency on coalfired electricity by 18 to 20 percent.
Purchased in 2003 by Harvey Berk, president of Manhattan Management Company, the family-run Cherry Tree Corporate Center is conveniently located just off the Ben Franklin Bridge and boasts an occupancy rate of 92 percent. Since 2004, Berk has made steady strides towards including environmentalism in his business endeavors. He has retrofitted the center’s lighting and has installed a digital elevator that uses biodegradable vegetable oil in place of hydraulic oil. For the past five years, he researched the feasibility and cost effectiveness of replacing the building’s standard electricity power, which has come to fruition through this conversion.
Location: 535 Rte. 38 E., Ste. 145, Cherry Hill. For more information, call 856-662-6050 or visit CherryTreeCorporateCenter.com.
