LEED Gold and SITES Pilot 2 Star Certified, 38 Dolores features 81 luxury residential rental condos above a 30,000 sf Whole Foods Market. Sited on a uniquely shaped .72 acre site, this national award-winning 8-story mixed-use building creates a pedestrian-oriented urban node and retail anchor for the Upper Market corridor while providing much needed housing, vibrant retail and pedestrian gathering spaces for this diverse area.
The highly sustainable project incorporates recycled and eco-friendly materials and includes green roofs, a landscaped podium to reduce heat island effect, and cistern and water retention for landscape irrigation. The design of residential flow-through units incorporates passive ventilation and maximizes solar access for residents. An emphasis on verticality and 25-30 foot modules allows the building to continue the residential rhythm of the neighborhood, while use of the flat-iron form enhances the corner and highlights the entrance to the surrounding historic neighborhood district.
