1951 Shattuck: ESG

Designed to GreenPoint Rated Gold Certification, all homes at 1951 Shattuck will be powered by electric energy. Every residential unit will have its own electrical and water meter, encouraging efficient use. 

Offering nine Electric Vehicle charging stations, 90 secured bicycle parking spots and enhanced public spaces featuring indigenous pollinator/butterfly attracting species of trees and planters, the construction of 1951 Shattuck commits to hiring local trades and laborers and supports the neighboring Berkeley Food & Housing's HOPE Center.
