Electric Vehicle Car Charging Stations

Hines is proud to announce the installation of two (2) ChargePoint Network Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Stations located on the P-1 Level of the Columbia Square parking garage. The charging stations are open to all drivers of plug-in vehicles from all major manufacturers including the Chevrolet Volt, the Nissan LEAF, and the Ford Focus EV.

Special points of interest:

  • $1.00 per hour to charge your vehicle.
  •  Charging Stations accept payment via credit card or a ChargePass card.
  • You will only be charged for the actual amount of hours necessary to fully charge your vehicle regardless of how many hours it is plugged in, e.g., if your car is fully charge after four hours, but is left plugged in for eight hours, you will be charged $4.00.
  • An SMS or Email notification can be sent to notify you once the charge is complete or if there is an interruption in charging.
  • You must use the same method of payment to start and stop the charging session.
