Invisible Urban Charging (“IUC”) is excited to announce its strategic partnership with Highwoods Properties (NYSE: HIW), a renowned publicly traded real estate investment trust (“REIT”), to supply electric vehicle (“EV”) chargers at one of its premier properties located in Atlanta, Georgia.
Under the terms of the agreement, IUC has replaced existing on-site chargers with 10 state-of-the-art units at Highwoods Properties’ recently renovated 200 Riverwood. This modern, 299,000 square-foot all-glass office building is situated in Atlanta's upscale Cumberland submarket, designed to attract a next-generation workforce. The installation was completed in less than three days and is now online, offering an enhanced charging experience to tenants and visitors alike.
“For decades, Highwoods Properties has been committed to Investing in clean energy infrastructure to contribute towards a sustainable future and provide healthy and productive workspaces for our customers,” said Devon K. Tucker, Parking Operations Supervisor for Highwoods. “With the growth and demand for electric vehicles, we felt it was appropriate to partner with a company like IUC, which shared the same goals as our organization. We strongly advocate supporting the transition to electric mobility as a vital step toward a sustainable future. Embracing electric vehicles reduces reliance on fossil fuels, curbs harmful emissions, and improves air quality, contributing to a cleaner and greener environment. By investing in charging infrastructure, incentivizing electric vehicle adoption, and promoting technological advancements, we can accelerate this transition and create a healthier, more sustainable transportation system for future generations.”

For the installation, IUC has collaborated with Jones Lang Lasalle (“JLL”), a globally recognized leader in property development and management. Leveraging JLL's expertise and a nationwide installation capability through its extensive network of electrical contractors, logistics, and signage partners, IUC ensures a seamless deployment process.
