Solar on a Silicon Valley Spec Office Building

Central Station

Developing a speculative office building for the tech industry, Steelwave and Principal Real Estate Investors sought to achieve a LEED Gold certification and a long-term site lease payment, while providing future tenants with benefits associated with on-site solar – specifically reduced operating expense and covered parking. Unico Solar developed an innovative series of parking canopies that helped the property’s stormwater runoff program while providing shade for building tenants. Likewise, the low-profile, fully-ballasted rooftop system makes use of the under-utilized roof.
