LED Lights Used in Eagan’s Central Park Commons

The 47-acre site will only use one circuit of 55 amps. In contrast, a single-family home uses roughly 200 amps, officials say.
EAGAN (October 19th, 2016) – Eagan’s latest shopping and entertainment center, the Central Park Commons, opened at the corner of Pilot Knob and Yankee Doodle Road earlier this month. While the center’s primary draw for residents will no doubt be its new retailers, including Marshalls, HomeGoods, Hobby Lobby and Hy-Vee, the Commons’ state of the art lighting system may grab people’s attention as well.
For Central Park Commons, developer CSM Corporation selected all LED lighting for the parking lot and exterior building lights. “The energy consumption is so low,” says John Johannson, adding that LED is slowly becoming the industry standard.
This is a first for such a large CSM development. The 47-acre site will only use one circuit of 55 amps. In contrast, a single-family home uses roughly 200 amps, according to a news release.
“It feels good to conserve resources,” says Johannson. “It was absolutely the correct decision to go this way.”
Among the additional retailers and restaurateurs that plan to put down stakes at Central Park Commons are AT&T, Bank of America, Café Zupas, DSW, Five Below, Massage Envy, Men’s Wearhouse, Naf Naf Grill, Orangetheory Fitness, Piada, Punch Pizza, R Taco, Sierra Trading, Tavern of Eagan Tile Shop, Total Wine and Ulta.
