LEED For Homes

What is the U.S. Green Building Council?

The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) is a 501(c)(3) non profit composed of leaders from every sector of the building industry working to promote buildings and communities that are environmentally responsible, profitable and healthy places to live and work.

The mission of the USGBC is to transform the way buildings and communities are designed, built and operated, enabling an environmentally and socially responsible, healthy, and prosperous environment that improves the quality of life.

What is LEED?

LEED, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is redefining the way we think about the places where we live, work and learn. As an internationally recognized mark of excellence, LEED provides building owners and operators with a framework for identifying and implementing practical and measurable green building design, construction, operations and maintenance solutions.

With nearly 9 billion square feet of building space participating in the suite of rating systems and 1.6 million feet certifying per day around the world, LEED is transforming the way built environments are designed, constructed, and operated --- from individual buildings and homes, to entire neighborhoods and communities. Comprehensive and flexible, LEED works throughout a building's life cycle.

LEED certification provides independent, third-party verification that a building, home or community was designed and built using strategies aimed at achieving high performance in key areas of human and environmental health: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality.

Developed by the USGBC in 2000, the LEED rating systems are developed through an open, consensus-based process led by LEED committees. The next update of the LEED rating system, coined LEED 2012, is the next step in the continuous improvement process and on-going development cycle of LEED.

Who oversees the LEED certification process?

The team at Bright Green Strategies managed the process of making The Plaza be as green as it could be. With over 20 years of experience in energy efficient building design and planning, Bright Green Strategies has worked on on thousands of energy efficiency projects in the San Francisco and Monterey Bay Area. Since 2007, they have helped over 50 green building projects through the LEED for Home, GreenPoint Rated, and Energy Star New Home programs.

Green Living

The Plaza is a very thoughtful community right from the start. We began with a smart infill location and efficient architectural design to minimize construction material waste. We've designed and built The Plaza with a generous selection of sustainable construction materials and limited consumption of natural resources including gas, electricity, and water during and after construction. On-site recycling helped to further divert construction debris from overcrowded landfills. Put it all together and The Plaza meets the standards of LEED for homes at the prestigious level of "Gold." We have beautiful residences with wonderful indoor air quality.

A Transit Focus

The savvy Northern California lifestyle is all about utilizing mass transit to the fullest. The Plaza's coveted location and concept makes it easier for you to get around town without having to use your car. Residents of The Plaza will enjoy special conveniences like a County Transit stop with access to Caltrain. Saving money on gas is a good thing. You'll be close to lots of scenic bikeways when you live at The Plaza. We have a bike repair shop and plenty of bike storage to make life even easier.

Recycled is Beautiful

The Plaza uses beams and joists made from recycled wood-chip byproduct instead wood-frame construction so the forest can do its thing by reducing CO2 in the atmosphere. We love forests just as much as you do.

Water That's Resourceful

At The Plaza, we chose low-flow fixtures so you can flush the toilet and take a shower knowing that you're minimizing the use of precious water resources.

A Smaller Footprint is the Perfect Fit

The term Carbon Footprint is used a lot. Basically it means working efficiently and considerately. At The Plaza, we've selected Energy Star appliances for our residences to keep that footprint smaller. Enjoy cooking and washing clothes with your in-unit washer-dryer that allow for savings on your monthly utilities. Every little bit counts.

Landscaping That's Smart

One of the prettiest green decisions we made is actually green. At The Plaza, we've chosen drought-tolerant plants and drip irrigation systems to minimize water consumption. The landscaping here is beautiful without being wasteful. Enjoy the tranquil atmosphere we've created just for you.

On-site Amenities Keep You Active

The Plaza offers our residents the highest quality amenity package including a pool, spa, fitness room, club room, outdoor barbecues and bike shop. Additionally, 8,000 sq. ft. of retail space will include a future coffee shop, sandwich shop, hair salon, and restaurant. All these great amenities let you enjoy an active life right here at home. Walk more, enjoy more and live more at The Plaza in Foster City!
