Primera Towers I – V are class A mid-rise towers located in Lake Mary, Florida. Lake Mary is a suburban office market east of Orlando CBD. While it is not the largest suburban market for Orlando, it boasts the best occupancy rates. The high occupancy is due to the executive housing, ample retail and restaurant options in addition to the strong office market. It is a desirable work, live, play area with convenient access to most major highways.
The towers are in a park setting of 49.62 acres and were built from 1997 to 2000 by Crescent Resources. Four of the towers are six stories and the fifth tower is four stories. The total rentable square footage is 771,826 and current occupancy is 95%.
The tower’s exterior consists of spandrel glass curtain walls with polished granite veneers and granite panels along the facade. Each building has an impressive two story atrium lobby with marble and granite finishes. Windows are sealed insulated glazing with reflective thermal panel solar glass. The roofs are flat single membrane. Building standard finishes include carpet tile, satin stainless steel hardware, and cherry wood doors.
Each building has three elevators with one that has both front and rear opening capabilities for freight. There is a designated delivery area with oversize doors to make deliveries convenient. All five buildings have ample surface parking for tenants and their guests.
The HVAC system for the building uses water cooled VAV units located on each floor. The systems are controlled by Trane energy management systems.
Life safety systems are state of the art in the towers and are connected to the emergency generator in the event of a power failure. Each building has common area cameras which records to a DVD in the engineer’s office. After hours the buildings are controlled with an access control system and supplemented with a roving security guard.
