Tri Properties and Principal Real Estate partnered to develop Churchill Hall, the first Class-A spec office building in the Carolinas to use View Dynamic Glass. Imperial Center remains one of the Southeast’s largest and most successful business parks, located at the intersection of Interstates 40 and 540 between the Research Triangle Park, Raleigh, Durham, Cary, and the RDU Airport.

Tri Properties selected View Dynamic Glass for Churchill Hall in order to provide a high-tech, enjoyable work environment, which companies in the Research Triangle are increasingly seeking. In addition, the inclusion of View glass was critical in helping the building achieve LEED Gold pre-certification, decreasing energy consumption by 15.7% compared to Solarban 60, and reducing HVAC load requirements by 33 tons - saving $40,000 in capital costs.

We are excited to partner with Tri Properties and employ an innovative approach to improving the tenant experience. Further demonstrating the vision that has made us a leader in the Triangle market, Principal Real Estate Investors and Tri Properties are introducing a state-of-the-art LEED® building completely void of mini-blinds and positioning ourselves as the first landlord that frees tenants from the choice between extreme glare or a wall of blinds.
