SALT LAKE CITY – Bay Pacific East South Temple and Newmark Grubb Acres have installed new SemaConnect smart electric vehicle charging stations at 420 East South Temple. The four new Series 6 charging stations, mounted on dual pedestals with a cable management system, support Bay Pacific and Newmark’s sustainable values and support the EV drivers who work at the property.
Salt Lake City is currently growing thanks to new corporations moving to the region and hiring young, tech-savvy, and eco-conscious talent. With these new employees come electric vehicles and the need to charge them. Because EV drivers charge where they are parked, their workplaces are a preferred place to charge. Forward-thinking commercial real estate companies are installing electric vehicle charging stations to attract corporate tenants and provide a necessary employee amenity. 420 East South Temple is one of the first commercial properties to install charging stations in downtown Salt Lake City specifically for tenants.
“We started looking for electric vehicle charging stations earlier this spring to support our tenants,” said Samantha Arnold, property manager at 420 East South Temple. “We knew that there were some EV drivers already at the property, and we knew that EV charging stations would be an attractive amenity for companies looking for office space in downtown Salt Lake City. We’re excited to support energy efficiency and sustainability on South Temple.”
“This year, I’ve had more and more Salt Lake City property managers call me about EV charging at their commercial properties,” said Connie Meehan, sales manager at SemaConnect. “They’re considering future growth and making new renovations so they can stand out from the competition. We’re honored to help 420 East South Temple attract new clients and tenants, and I look forward to further working with Newmark Grubb Acres in Salt Lake City.”
420 East South Temple’s new SemaConnect Series 6 charging stations are installed in levels P2 and P3 of the parking garage. Designed for commercial use, they feature a futuristic and compact design, interactive LED lights, smart card authentication, and access to the SemaConnect Network. Using the SemaConnect Network, property managers can manage access and pricing, view live station status, and generate sustainability and usage reports. Drivers using the new SemaConnect charging stations at 420 East South Temple can find station locations and live station status using the SemaConnect and PlugShare applications. In addition to the mobile apps, drivers can also initiate a charge using a SemaConnect Pass, by dialing 800-663-5633, or by visiting network.semaconnect.com from their mobile browser. The four stations at 420 East South Temple cost $1 per hour and are open to employees and public visitors.
