The Crown Estate earned the distinction based on seven categories of building performance: air, water, light, nourishment, fitness, comfort and mind. The Crown Estate is also aiming for WELL Certification for a further two buildings in central London, at the Marq on Jermyn St and 1 Heddon St.
The Crown Estate is a collection of lands and holdings in the United Kingdom belonging to the British monarch as a corporation sole, making it the "Sovereign's public estate", which is neither government property nor part of the monarch's private estate.
The International WELL Building Institute (IWBI) is leading the global movement to transform buildings and communities in ways that help people thrive. IWBI delivers the cutting-edge WELL Building Standard, the first to be focused exclusively on the ways that buildings, and everything in them, can improve occupant comfort, drive better choices, and generally enhance, not compromise, health and wellness.

The project includes the eventual installation of rooftop solar panels, low-flow water fixtures and other energy efficient upgrades.
