As the first major new development opportunity in Santa Cruz in the last twenty years, this project offers a number of unique opportunities in commercial, industrial, and work/live flex uses.
This fully entitled development is zoned industrial with a commercial overlay, and includes a retail and residential component to round out the development.
The project fits the mold of the Santa Cruz lifestyle as a green project, recognized by its LEED neighborhood certification.
Delaware Addition has been certified as a LEED Neighborhood Pilot Project by the U.S. Green Building Council. We are among the first 25 projects in the United States to earn that award. Delaware Addition has helped set the new international standard for sustainable communities by conserving water and energy, mixing commercial and resident uses in higher-density configurations, locating next to existing communities and infrastructure, incorporating bike and pedestrian ways, providing charging stations for electric cars and amenities that make traditional car trips shorter or even unnecessary.
With LEED Neighborhood certification for the project as a whole, businesses that purchase lots and develop green buildings will have a head start toward their own LEED building certification.
