Project: 38 Dolores

38 Dolores is a socially vibrant urban habitat at the apex of San Francisco's most diverse neighborhoods, the Castro/Mission district. Designed by William McDonough + Partners, BAR Architects, and April Phillips Design Works Landscape Architecture, the former vacant auto showroom was transformed into a LEED Gold certified mixed-use building with SITES Pilot 2 Star Certification.

38 Dolores has approximately 84 luxury residential rental condos, a 30,000 square foot Whole Foods Market, and parking levels for residential and retail. Sustainable strategies include daylighting, alternative energy technologies, two greenroofs with habitat for the local endangered Mission Blue butterfly and the San Bruno elfin butterfly as well as for human well-being, edible and stormwater gardens, and much more.

Very nice Jensen!

Unfortunately this project is exactly what I call green washing and going to the building's webpage shows even more that the architects might had a great idea but were not able to transform these idea in reality. The green roof pictures on their webpage are actually from other projects.

Additionally your link is also not working.

I am asking the Admin to remove this post.
