Santa Clara, CA: Regional Plants Boost Residential Rehab

In one of its most ambitious rehab projects to date, the Housing Authority of the County of Santa Clara (HACSC) chose to take a step firmly forward and incorporate sustainable features into more than 500 units of affordable housing. “We saw an opportunity to promote environmental sustainability within these properties—both to the benefit of tenants and the authority—and decided to go with it,” says HACSC executive director Alex Sanchez. The initiative was made possible through $95 million in private-sector equity funding and commercial debt. Energy cost savings also figured prominently.
