Genuine Green:

Adding dignified density to existing single story downtown neighborhoods is a key sustainability strategy.  1128 achieves a walk score of 99 and offers lifestyle opportunities that can reduce the need for cars, increase localism,  simplify use of transit, and create a more social, interwoven neighborhood environment.

The project is located close to a stunning variety of shops, restaurants, entertainment and civic uses. City Hall is just down the block and the historic Main Library is right around the corner. The train station, community center and high school are all within easy walking distance.

While Bay Area communities are often fully conflicted by demanding a solution to the housing shortage while resisting development of housing in downtown neighborhoods, small lot projects such as 1128 Douglas are an important transitional ingredient for making existing neighborhoods both environmentally and economically sustainable.

As densities increase and downtown customer bases expand and diversify , greater opportunities for local businesses will continue to increase neighborhood amenities and neighborhood functionality. This further supports investment in downtowns and keeps them attractive as market choices.
