BALTIMORE, April 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- With over 700 electric vehicle charging stations across the Washington DC and Baltimore area, property owners and managers have realized the great demand for convenient and fast ways to charge their electric vehicles. SemaConnect, Inc. announced today that they were chosen by Bozzuto/La Salle Investments to install four electric vehicle charging stations at the property the company owns and manages at 201 I Street NE Washington DC . The electric vehicle charging stations will offer tenants an additional location to charge their electric vehicle in downtown DC. Officials cite the high tenant demand for this amenity as the reason for choosing SemaConnect.
Billed as the first luxury rental property in the H Street Corridor — the crossroads of Washington, DC - the apartments offer impeccable finishes, state-of-the-art appliances, dynamic city views, a rooftop pool and dog park, all close to Union Station and Capitol Hill.
"With fuel cost savings and excellent performance, there are many reasons DC residents are making the switch to electric vehicles," said Mark Pastrone, VP of Business Development at SemaConnect. "Forward thinking property owners and managers are helping to further grow the adoption of EV's by installing charging stations. We are pleased to be working with Bozzuto and La Salle Investment Management on this pioneering project."
