CONGRATS to the CMG Team – Treasure Island is the Largest Plan EVER to achieve LEED-ND Platinum Certification!

As the lead landscape architect on the project, CMG documented all of the LEED-ND landscape credits for the entire project. CMG has been involved with this project since 2002. 

From FivePoint and PR Newswire:

In addition to achieving one of the highest scores for a LEED-ND project, Treasure Island's plan recorded other milestones:

  • It is the largest development, in terms of acres and building square footage, certified under LEED v4.  
  • Of the LEED-ND projects globally, it is one of just 17 to be certified at the Platinum level.

"At the outset of our planning, we committed to developing a sustainable community that utilized the latest innovations in infrastructure, housing and transportation,'' said Chris Meany, principal of developer Wilson Meany. "We are thrilled that Treasure Island has achieved the highest designation ever. It is only fitting that this milestone has occurred in San Francisco, a city at the forefront of environmental consciousness.''

Treasure Island received Platinum LEED certification for implementing measurable strategies and best practices to achieve sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, sea-level rise adaptation and overall environmental quality.
