Site: 14 acres
Sustainable Features: LEED-ND Platinum (First LEED Platinum multi-functional master plan)
Emeryville Marketplace is the first master plan design in the nation to be registered in the LEED Neighborhood Development Platinum program. With new and existing commercial space and more than 670 residential units, this 1.2M gsf project’s balanced design creates a walkable, mixed-use, and transit-accessible development – in essence, a completely diverse and livable community. To achieve this special rating, an existing Brownfield site was reused for the creation of the Emeryville Marketplace plan. Recycling of several other structures on site and adding innovative and sustainable design features are also elements of this development plan. As an infill site, the project location takes advantage of existing transit, housing, and jobs. Enhanced pedestrian and bicycle routes were also designed to bring together the existing city grid with the new Emeryville Marketplace project.
