Environmentalism and sustainability are at the core of SeaPoint. Our most substantial commitment to environmentalism is in our site plan: locating synergistic companies side-by-side dramatically reduces drayage, or the transport of goods over a short distance. A company that locates on our site can bring in their raw material by vessel, process it on site, and ship it by rail or ship to its final destination without a single truck having to leave our facility.
At the entrance of our property sits a 1 MW solar field, which was formerly a city landfill, and a new honeybee sanctuary. If you continue into the site, you’ll find a steam-driven turbo generator set, which helps offset some electrical use.
Most importantly, SeaPoint is making productive use of a former industrial site. Rather than developing ‘new’ land, we have invested nearly $40 million to remediate the property, and revitalize existing infrastructure on site that can be re-used by future tenants.
