Commitment

Our portfolio of projects demonstrates Domus’ focus on a triple bottom line of environmental sustainability, social responsibility, and economic viability. All of our projects are high-density infill products that epitomize smart growth and responsible land use. Our portfolio of high-quality affordable housing shows our ongoing commitment to working families and seniors on a fixed income. Our projects focus on social equity, health, sustainability, transit, and active transportation.

Policy makers, industry leaders, and community advocates alike recognize that the future of development patterns hinge on creating sustainable communities. Infill development is fundamental to creating sustainable communities consistent with the Sustainable Communities and Climate Protection Act of 2008 (SB 375) and the Partnership for Sustainable Communities (HUD-DOT-EPA). Since 2003, Domus has fearlessly taken on the policy reform, infrastructure improvements, and community support needed to make sustainable community development a reality.

Domus’s new construction and rehabilitation projects address these six key components, which interact to create properties that set a template for sustainable land development and healthy communities.

Energy Efficiency

Several of our properties utilize solar energy through cutting edge photovoltaic technology and passive house. Rosewood Court Senior Living and Hook and Ladder are the first passive house affordable housing projects in Arizona and Minnesota, respectively. Garvey Court is a LEED Platinum building and the first LEED building ever constructed in the City of El Monte in Los Angeles County. La Valentina North was the pilot project for the Sacramento Municipal Utility District’s Home of the Future Program, creating near Net-Zero buildings in which 100% of the energy consumed within highly-efficient dwellings were created by rooftop solar panels. Buildings exceed Title 24 by an unprecedented over-50%. All of our properties feature energy efficient appliances, including a large number with an Energy Star designation.

Resource Efficiency

Our projects are designed with features that maximize resource efficiency. Landscaping at sites such as Kings Beach incorporates a bio-filtration system, naturally treating storm water that helps keep Lake Tahoe blue. Siena Court features a green roof that contains 100% of storm water, preventing run-off into the San Francisco Bay Delta region.

Responsible Land Use

We are committed to high-density infill development and siting projects near jobs and amenities. At some of our sites, including Kings Beach, residents are issued transit passes. At La Valentina, one of our transit-oriented development sites, one third of residents walk, bike, or use transit for their daily commute.
