Davenport 360, LLC selected View®, the leader in dynamic glass, to install View Dynamic Glass in the first office building in Austin at its under-construction Class-A office development project. With View Dynamic Glass, tenants will be able to enjoy windows that do not require blinds or shades, preserving the panoramic hill country and greenbelt views surrounding the property.
Located 15 minutes west of downtown on Capital of Texas Highway (Loop 360), Davenport 360 is accepting tenants and is represented by commercial real estate brokers, Melissa Totten and Brett Arabie of Cushman & Wakefield. Studies have shown outdoor views and daylighting increases worker productivity, comfort and wellbeing in office environments.
“With beauty in every direction, we wanted occupants of the development to enjoy its breathtaking views without compromise,” said Michael Ayer, Davenport 360 developer. “View Dynamic Glass is an impressive innovation over traditional windows that enables us to delight occupants with a significantly enhanced working environment.”
Powered by a sophisticated intelligence engine that adapts to outdoor conditions and occupant preferences, View Dynamic Glass will automatically adjust tint levels based on Davenport 360’s design, location, orientation, sun position and cloud cover. By letting in natural light and blocking unwanted solar heat during Austin’s 300 days of sunshine per year, View Dynamic Glass will significantly reduce Davenport 360’s air conditioning and lighting costs. The expected results will be energy savings of up to 20 percent, especially during peak hours.
“We’re very pleased our first installation in Austin — home to the country’s first green building program — will be part of such a spectacular project,” said View CEO Rao Mulpuri. “View continues to see strong demand in the workplace segment as expansive views, abundant natural light and thermal comfort are critically important in improving office environments for occupants. We look forward to playing an instrumental role in fueling innovation and collaboration in this remarkable new office space.”
“Dynamic glass will add a significant value to this building space,” said Brett Arabie, managing director, Cushman & Wakefield. “We’re excited to represent a development which would be the first in Austin to adopt this innovative technology and help tenants gain a competitive advantage for their workforce.”
