First ever LEED-ND certified project! Neighborhood redevelopment also included historic tax credits

With 47 points, the project attained the Certified level. It features drought-resistant landscaping, a water recharge system that captures rainwater and reduces runoff, and dark-sky-friendly streetlights. Not all buildings within a LEED-ND project need to be LEED-certified. In this case, the neighborhood includes three individually LEED-certified buildings out of 14 total—including the Presidio’s largest historic building, the former Public Health Service Hospital, which reopened in 2010 as the Presidio Landmark apartments. The nearby Belles Townhomes, the only newly constructed residential buildings in the Presidio, earned LEED Platinum, while the rehabilitation of the historic nurses’ dormitory earned LEED Gold certification as a core and shell project.
