Treasure Island LEED-ND
Treasure Island, CA
Raimi + Associates is directing LEED for Neighborhood Development implementation for the Treasure Island/Yerba Buena Redevelopment Project, the largest and highest scoring LEED-ND project in the world. The ambitious effort aims to create a new neighborhood on Treasure Island and Yerba Buena Island located in the San Francisco Bay while providing extensive public benefits to San Francisco and its residents. The project includes significant amounts of new affordable housing, extensive public space and natural habitat, transportation improvements, extensive infrastructure improvements, and distinct-scale sustainability features such as stormwater retention and wastewater capture.
R+A led the LEED for Neighborhood Development effort, focusing not just on immediate certification but on future implementation. This included creating design specifications to ensure high LEED-ND performance and best practices in sustainability and urban design. R+A continues to work with members of the design team - to ensure that buildings, streets, infrastructure, and site planning are completed consistently with the LEED-ND commitments and aggressive sustainability goals.
