Presidio Neighborhood Is First LEED-ND 2009 Certified Project

The historic San Francisco redevelopment is the first to earn LEED for Neighborhood Development certification since the rating system was formally launched.

The Presidio, a former army base and an urban national park site located at the base of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, is home to the world’s first community certified under LEED for Neighborhood Development (LEED-ND 2009) since LEED-ND left its pilot phase, as recognized by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). The Public Health Service District (PHS District), the first “green” neighborhood in the Presidio, is a mixed-use 36-acre site featuring 172 housing units, office space, a preschool, hiking trails, scenic views toward the Pacific, and 25 acres of open space and native habitat.
