Judges Statement:
This is a mixed-use affordable housing project in Sacramento, California. The remediated brownfield site was once home to auto-repair shops that
left the soil very polluted with arsenic, mercury, and lead. The land sat vacant for over 20 years and became notorious for crime. Domus Development was selected by the
City of Sacramento to redevelop the property into the region’s first true transit oriented development.
Not only has it been transformed from a vacant, blighted site into beautiful, thriving residences, but it has also been a catalyst for transforming perceptions about a
greener and more economically vibrant Sacramento. The buildings that comprise the community are aesthetically distinctive, and are at the forefront of green technology
and design. The North site is home to near NET-ZERO energy usage buildings that exceed Title 24 by over 50%. The project is also a Sacramento Municipal Utility District
Homes of the Future case study with the goal of encouraging other developers to make the same commitment to energy efficiency. Most importantly, this is a beacon of
hope that connects a formerly distressed neighborhood to the heart of downtown at the beginning of its renaissance.
