The Shipyard/Candlestick master planned community will create a thriving and sustainable new mixed-use neighborhood that is vital, accessible and integrated into the existing Bayview Hunters Point neighborhood. The new community will provide opportunities for residents to live, recreate, and raise a family in a safe, affordable and healthy environment.
Infrastructure will be state-of-the-art, and buildings and public outdoor spaces will be designed to minimize the project’s use of resources, such as energy and water. The development has been awarded LEED-ND Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. Indicative of its leadership position in sustainable development, the Shipyard/Candlestick community was recently selected as the site for the construction of the United Nation’s Global Compact Center which will be the world headquarters of the UN’s research efforts in the fight against global warming and development of clean technology.
A strong commitment to building green at The Shipyard has been adopted. Lennar is partnering with the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) in forging a power provider agreement that will enable The Shipyard to be the first mixed-use community in Northern California to receive 100% “clean power” from hydropower, solar and other renewable energy generation projects.
Sustainable practices will include:
- Use of Renewable Energy
- Installation of additional landscape piping through all parks and open space for future recycled water use
- Possible Use of Automated Waste Collection System
- Transportation Management System with emphasis on use of public transportation
- Incorporate bicycle parking into neighborhoods and buildings
- Plant 10,000 new trees
- Restore and enhance tidal marsh and high beach habitats
- Capture and treat 100% of onsite storm water
