555 Riverwalk Parkway
555 Riverwalk Parkway was a project completed for a Fortune 100 Company. The company, which has deep roots in Western New York, was looking to consolidate its local workforce from multiple locations for greater efficiency, enhanced collaboration, and, in keeping with their focus on environmental sustainability, a smaller carbon footprint.
TM Montante Development completed the new 88,000 square-foot facility at Riverview Solar Technology Park in 2014. This state-of-the-art building is the first in New York State to feature Advanced Solar Architecture, using solar panels to generate electricity and also provide additional benefits, such as shading, with wind and rain protection.
In addition to the solar aspects, the building features other innovative sustainability technologies, including low-flow water technology and fixtures, and dedicated bio-beds, which dramatically reduce water consumption and provide underground water retention for storm water management and soil erosion control. TM Montante Development incorporated LEED characteristics throughout the building that are expected to reduce energy costs by 30-40 percent. The signature 100kW solar curtain wall is predicted to replace 1 million kilowatt hours of fossil fuel-sourced electricity over a 10-year period.
