Panasonic invests in infrastructure near its new “aerotropolis” campus

Work where you live… For me, that would mean an office of mostly pizza boxes, but for some Panasonic employees, it could mean:

“An innovative solar-plus-storage micro-grid, smart LED street lights with video analytics and other features for community safety and parking, community Wi-Fi, electric vehicle charging stations, and autonomous electric shuttles to create a seamless mobility experience throughout the transit-oriented development to and from the rail station,” according to the latest press release from Panasonic touting their investment near Peña Station

Panasonic is part of a broader team, including Denver International Airport, seeking to make the 400 acres of Peña Station into a mixed-used and transit-oriented development. For its part, Panasonic is expected to have 350 employees there by 2018.

“Panasonic is much more than the anchor corporate tenant at Peña Station NEXT,” said Jarrett Wendt, executive vice president of strategic initiatives at Panasonic Enterprise Solutions Company.

“This is our home, and this strategic investment is a testament to our commitment to make that home one of the smartest and most sustainable new developments in the country.”
