Parkway Properties’ Hearst Tower is using the LRD!
Parkway Properties, Inc.’s (“Parkway”) Hearst Tower in Charlotte, NC has upgraded its lighting with the LRD. Parkway is striving to become one of the industry leaders in the development and operation of high performance green buildings and is making a positive contribution toward a sustainable future by integrating green building practices into their business. Opened in 2002, the 47-story Hearst Tower is Charlotte’s fourth tallest building and contains nearly 1,000,000 square feet of rentable space. With the assistance of Team Lighting and Shealy Electrical in Charlotte, NC, Parkway used the 8” LRD to replace their existing 500 watt PAR56 lamps. As a result, they furthered their green initiative by saving nearly 90% in energy costs for these fixtures, virtually eliminated maintenance, and improved their light quality.
