Major Office Investor Embraces Electric Vehicles

Parmenter Realty Partners, a leader in sustainability in the commercial office building industry, is pleased to announce that it is the first commercial real estate firm of its kind to offer electric vehicle (EV) charging stations at their buildings. With approximately 17,000 parking spaces across its portfolio, the potential positive environmental impact is great. With many of the buildings in the portfolio either LEED certified or in the process of LEED certification, Parmenter is demonstrating their commitment to environmentally responsible commercial office buildings.

“Sustainable buildings are our passion and electric charging stations simply make sense. Tenants have the option to charge their vehicles while they are working,” says Steve Harrison, Vice President of Facilities. Darryl Parmenter, President and Chief Executive Officer further adds, “Electric cars have the potential to significantly reduce the carbon footprint with zero tail pipe emissions. It’s our goal to continue to reduce our carbon foot print and facilitating our tenants to reduce their carbon foot print with the use of EV charging stations is the right thing to do.”

Parmenter Realty Partners is a vertically integrated real estate institutional fund operator headquartered in South Florida with regional offices in Dallas, Atlanta, and a capital markets office in New York. It is actively involved in the expansion of its portfolio in the major markets in the southern half of the United States. Parmenter identifies and acquires underperforming office properties in fundamentally sound in-fill markets that have current or future occupancy issues and require repositioning, and uses its hands on operational skills to create operational efficiencies.
