Apex Clean Energy will build a new headquarters in downtown Charlottesville
Apex Clean Energy will build a new 130,000-square-foot headquarters in downtown Charlottesville and will occupy nearly half the space in the building.
According to Cushman & Wakefield | Thalhimer, which assisted the company with the lease, Apex will lease 60,000 square feet in the seven-story headquarters that will be built on Garrett Street. The developer will be Riverbend Development with design handled by William McDonough + Partners out of Charlottesville.
The remaining space will be leased to other tenants, including 10,000 square feet of street-level retail space.
Steve Bowers, vice president of marketing and communications for Apex, said the company expects to break ground on the project by mid-year, and the buildout is expected to take 18 to 24 months.
Apex Clean Energy builds, owns and operates utility-scale wind and solar power facilities. In Virginia, it’s the company behind wind farm projects in Botetourt and Pulaski counties.
John Pritzlaff of Thalhimer’s Charlottesville office assisted Apex with the lease.
