Palisades has been transformed into a climate-conscious workplace. The Plant at Palisades will come online this year as a 1 megawatt solar plant, the largest at a multi-tenant office property in the southeast. The solar plant, combined with other sustainable investments, will make Palisades’ carbon footprint 40% lower than a typical Atlanta office property. Ownership also has invested in making Palisades a healthy environment for people.
