Stiles Property Management and Car Charging Group Inc. (OTCBB:CCGI), a provider of electric vehicle (EV) charging services with the mission to own and build out a nationwide network of EV charging stations, today announced their partnership to provide downtown Fort Lauderdale’s first EV charging services at The AutoNation Building.
“This is an exciting project for us,” said Car Charging Group CEO Michael D. Farkas. “Through a partnership with Stiles, who manages nearly all of the office towers on the iconic Las Olas Boulevard and is recognized for their first-class sustainability program, we are able to bring a much-needed resource to downtown Fort Lauderdale. Adding to the excitement is that the project is intended for Fort Lauderdale’s largest corporate tenant, AutoNation, who also markets EV vehicles as the country’s largest automotive retailer.”
Miami, Fla.-based Car Charging Group will install a Level ll, 240-volt charging station for electric vehicles. The charging station will be housed on the first floor of The AutoNation Building’s parking garage located at 200 Southwest 1st Avenue in Fort Lauderdale.
“In addition to enhancing the amenities we provide to our tenants at The AutoNation Building, this EV charging station demonstrates our long-term commitment to sustainability and our ability to lead the market in designing, developing, constructing and managing environmentally-conscious commercial structures,” said Terry Stiles, chairman and CEO of Stiles.
The EV charging station enhances the environmental credentials of The AutoNation Building, which Stiles’ developed in 2007 and currently owns and manages. The 17-story mixed-use Class A office building recently became Stiles’ fifth project to receive LEED® certification from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) and the second in downtown Fort Lauderdale. Stiles’ 300 Las Olas Place office property was the first in the downtown area to achieve LEED status.
