Green Urbanism Project: Miraflores


On the severely contaminated site of a former commercial nursery, this 14.5 acre plan combines market-rate for-sale and affordable senior housing with creek restoration, bike trail access, and a significant urban agriculture component that will serve as a buffer from a nearby freeway. 


Global Green worked with the City of Richmond Redevelopment Agency on the LEED Gold-rated plan. We provided technical assistance on LEED-ND certification in part through ESRI's Conservation Program software grant. GIS technology combined with other graphics software generated the required spatial analysis for the project certification.
