Sacramento, CA 95814
Map It!


Built in 1991, Park Tower is a Class A office building in Sacramento, CA, with approximately 426,789 square feet of rentable space. Close to 90 percent occupied, the building's tenants include banks, investment firms, lobbying/law firms, and state agencies.

Park Tower's on-site management team is focused on energy management and water conservation. No- and low-cost improvement measures include implementing an enhanced preventative maintenance program, performing lighting audits, optimizing HVAC start/stop times, providing overtime air on Saturdays by request only, engaging janitorial and security staff to turn off unneeded lights, and staging chillers.

As part of ongoing energy and water management efforts, several upgrades have been completed. Low-flow aerators were added to restroom faucets, which reduce both water and energy use. Automatic shut-off faucets were added. Energy-efficient technologies contributing to the building's high energy performance score include variable speed drives on HVAC equipment, T8 and CFL lighting, occupancy sensors in stairwells, and LED exit signs.

Park Tower achieved LEED Gold certification in 2010.

Building owner CIM Group has a strong commitment to energy management and has set portfolio-wide goals for energy-efficient buildings.


Property management communicates with tenants about energy efficiency and sustainability, providing energy-saving tips to help the building maintain its superior performance. The building participated in the Change the World, Start with ENERGY STAR campaign, providing free compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) for tenants to take home, plus handouts about energy-efficient lighting. The property management team holds an Earth Day Fair each year to update tenants on green and energy-saving programs both for the home and the workplace.
