The Palms at Town & Country is an 80-acre, open-air lifestyle and power center site located along the Florida Turnpike in Miami, Florida. The Palms at Town & Country features a wide range of retailers and restaurants that cater to the affluent customer with discretionary income.
In keeping with our mission to increase LED conversion across the portfolio, Weingarten Realty chose The Palms at Town & Country for a retrofit.
Switching to LED lighting for the parking lot was the first portion to be tackled. Weingarten Realty hired WSL Lighting for the project and selected to replace 1000-watt metal halite fixtures with OSQ™ High Output luminaries and OSQ™ Area luminaries. 102 light poles were removed and pole maintenance was eliminated almost entirely.
The results from the LED conversion were a major success. Energy consumption was reduced by 83% and maintenance costs dropped significantly, a benefit for both the property and tenants.
Not only were there financial benefits, but the LED lighting also ensured heightened security and also allowed for increased visibility when conducting audits of the property.
