California Mixed-Use Building Undergoes LEED-Certified Renovation


Columbia Square, a mixed-use property in Hollywood, California, has undergone a LEED-certified renovation using LG Electronics’ heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) technologies.

The large-scale, mixed-use project required a HVAC system that would combine an energy-efficient and cost-effective platform, as well as flexibility for a shell and core fit-out. The team looked for a system that was efficient, quiet, reliable, low maintenance, and easily configurable.

The chosen LG VRF system was able to support building’s numerous glass windows and open spaces while still delivering high energy efficiencies to achieve the esteemed LEED Gold certification. The energy-efficient LG Multi V™ VRF system met all of Columbia Square’s criteria, and for nearly the same cost as a traditional system, Columbia Square now has a reliable HVAC solution that provides energy-efficient and individualized comfort for residents and occupants.

Originally built in 1938 as the home of CBS’s Hollywood headquarters, Columbia Square previously housed the CBS Radio Network’s West Coast facilities, as well as CBS’s original Los Angeles television and radio stations. The outstanding media village now heralds historic, yet urban workspaces, restaurants, walkable shopping and residential living.

LG in the news

In July, LG announced it signed a $43 million contract with the Guam Power Authority (GPA) that states LG will build two energy storage facilities on the island. One storage facility will be 24 MW, 6 MWh storage center while the other will be a 16 MW, 16 MWh facility. The 25-year contract states LG will operate and maintain the facilities. The project is expected to be completed within one year from now.

And just this week, LG Air Conditioning Technologies announced it is adding LG “Reliable to Extreme Degrees” (RED) heating technology to more products including the Multi F and Multi F MAX multi-zone outdoor units. LGRED technology not only delivers heat when traditional models are unable, but also does so with energy efficiency offering comfort to users living in extremely cold climates.
