Skanska’s Investment in View Windows Furthers its Sustainability Commitment
View Inc. was selected by Skanska USA Commercial Development to be featured in The Eight, a class-A high-rise office tower. The Eight is one of the first buildings in the Bellevue Central Business District to feature smart windows.
These windows will provide views of Lake Washington and downtown Bellevue, while also reducing energy consumption. View Smart Windows use artificial intelligence to automatically adjust in response to outdoor conditions, controlling heat and glare, and eliminating the need for blinds.
Built, developed and owned by Skanska, The Eight is a 25-story 541,000-square-foot commercial office tower featuring retail spaces, a public plaza and numerous exterior balconies. View Smart Windows will be part of a suite of tenant-focused amenities including a dedicated floor for tenant events, a health and wellness center, and electric vehicle and e-bike charging.
“The greater Seattle office sector is booming and in a post-COVID market, amenities focused on tenant wellness will be more important than ever,” said Murphy McCullough, EVP and regional manager with Skanska. “Our investment in View Smart Windows furthers Skanska’s commitment to innovation and to enhancing the sustainability of the built environment.”
