Unico’s solar energy investment in the award-winning Circa Building highlights Unico’s ability to integrate into ground-up real estate development. The rooftop system is part of a LEED Platinum construction project and supplies the building with over 35 percent of its electricity needs. In 2019, Circa Building was sold to a Goldman Sachs afﬁliate as part of a blockbuster 27-building, $710 million portfolio sale in Seattle and Denver. Unico’s solar lease was easily assigned to the new owners, proving that Unico’s innovative model contributes—and is not a hindrance—to successful institutional exits.
