Washington, DC – SemaConnect, Inc. announced today that it has installed an electric vehicle charging station at the award-winning 1400 Crystal Drive office building, in Arlington, VA which was recently redeveloped by Lowe Enterprises Investors on behalf of an investment client. Sustainable design and energy efficient programs were a primary element of Lowe’s redevelopment plan, earning the building LEED Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.

“The new electric vehicle charging station provides a convenience to our tenants and guests, and also reflects Lowe’s ongoing commitment to pursuing sustainable practices that protect our environment,” said Mark Rivers, managing director of Lowe Enterprises Real Estate Group’s Washington DC metro area office.

“Lowe Enterprises is very well respected in the real estate industry, and we are very pleased to be working with them to provide electric vehicle charging options,” said Mark Pastrone, VP of Business Development at SemaConnect. “We are excited about the continued growth of electric vehicle use in the Washington DC area.”
