One Paseo

One Paseo - Proposed LEED for Neighborhood Development project.

KRC’s sustainability strategy includes a commitment to LEED Gold certification for all new development, and the company evaluates major renovations and existing buildings for certifications. Currently, 28 percent of its office portfolio is LEED certified. The company also pursues leading-edge LEED projects, and built the first LEED for Core & Shell buildings in both San Diego and El Segundo. Additionally, KRC is one of the first developers in the nation to pursue LEED certification for the Neighborhood Development rating system for One Paseo, a proposed 26-acre mixed-use project in the Carmel Valley of San Diego.

One Paseo’s sustainability features include compact development, an infill location, walkable streets, drought-tolerant irrigation, and energy efficient infrastructure. The project was recently recognized by the MOVE Alliance, a San Diego smart growth nonprofit, for its potential contribution to smart growth in the greater San Diego area. Following almost two years of exhaustive study and analysis, the City of San Diego has released its Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) for One Paseo. The release of the DEIR marks a significant milestone in the public process to bring to fruition this innovative, sustainable mixed-use project.
