Car Charging Group Continues to Partner With Real Estate Developers

As automakers prepare to introduce the first mass-market electric cars this year, some real estate developers, like those behind Artech, an innovative luxury condominium complex in Aventura, FL, are getting ahead of the trend by installing car-charging stations from Car Charging Group, Inc. in their apartment complexes.
Car Charging Group, Inc. now provides Artech, the 232-residence luxury condominium, with electric car charging services in their 800-foot-long, 5-story parking garage. Artech is located on the Intracoastal at 2950 NE 188 Street in Aventura, FL.

Artech residents who own electric vehicles will now be able to conveniently charge their vehicles at the charging stations located on site. Under the agreement, Artech will share a percentage of the revenue derived from the charging stations.

"Electric cars are coming. A driver might want to purchase an electric car, but if they don't have a private garage, where can they charge them?" said Michael D. Farkas, Chief Executive Officer of Car Charging Group, Inc.  "If we want electric vehicles to be successful on a large scale, we can't rely on the government to do it all. We need big-box retailers, office buildings, malls, stadiums and fast-food franchises to participate in this movement not only because it's good for the environment, but also because it makes good business sense."

"The developers behind Artech, Shefaor Development LLC, along with world-renowned architect Carlos Ott and co-developer Fortune International, envisioned not only a beautiful building but a smart building a technologically advanced residence designed to bring your living space up to speed with the rest of your modern life," said Gilbert Benhamou, Principal of Shefaor Development, LLC. "Installing a car charging station is a natural extension of our technological vision for the property."
