NAIOP Project Spotlight: 50West & Bourbon Tasting
*Member Only Event*
Join us in growing Clermont to walk through the first Class-A office building in the southeastern United States made from Cross-Laminated Timber (CLT) with a full glass exterior.
Local developer Fifty West Realty wanted to fill a need for Class-A office in growing Clermont, and make a statement by designing and constructing an building that could reset the standards for office construction in Central Florida.
CLT is made of up to seven layers of solid wood glued to form structured panels with exceptional strength, dimensional stability and rigidity. These panels are produced in mass scale, are lightweight and strong, and allow for rapid installation that generates almost no waste on site. CLT is left exposed on the interior to leverage its unique aesthetic and create warm, welcoming and productive workplace environments.
Come meet the developer and design team to hear their story on how this project came together, and learn more about this ecologically sustainable and renewable new construction material.
At the end of our tour enjoy a tasting of Brown Sugar Bourbon, which will be brought to Clermont through a new local distillery that the developer of this office building is also developing in 2020 near the city’s downtown.
