Shapell Liberty Investment Properties is raising the bar on sustainable design for retail shopping centers. Its latest project—The Vineyards, a mixed-use shopping and entertainment center development in Porter Ranch—will feature solar panels, storm water capture systems and car charging stations, among a long list of the latest sustainable features and systems. The shopping center is scheduled to open in the spring of 2019.

“The national culture is changing in which we’re integrating and accepting into our lives more sustainable products and actions,” John Love, VP for Shapell Properties, tells GlobeSt.com. “In California, we’ve had some major recent droughts, so we are all looking at being more efficient with our water.  We know sustainability is something the general public cares about and they are making conscious decisions to support businesses that incorporate and promote more sustainable options.”
