An ESG guidebook is helping transform a surface parking lot into sustainable housing

The ESG Development Standard that our North American property business created this year is helping to ensure environmental, social and governance outcomes are considered across all projects. 

In addition to capturing current requirements, policies and best practices towards greenhouse gas emission reduction, the guide also describes net zero operational and embodied carbon considerations, physical and functional building characteristics and establishes criteria for performance.

Alongside our project team, TCA Architects is actively employing several strategies from the Standard during various stages of design for 2600 Telegraph in Oakland, California, where we will transform a surface parking lot and single-storey building into a new multi-family housing development, with onsite affordable homes, that will target Greenpoint Rated Gold certification and deliver 225 all-electric rental homes.
