888SanMateo_CornerBldgB_edited1SAN MATEO, CA – October 21, 2014 – 888 San Mateo, a multi-family midrise community developed by Sares Regis Group of Northern California (SRGNC) announced that the property has achieved LEED Platinum certification. 888 is only the sixth multi-family community in the United States with over 150 units to receive LEED’s highest recognition.

888 San Mateo is a 158-unit, two building luxury apartment community recently completed in January 2014. The transit-oriented community (TOC) has close proximity to numerous public transportation options, notably Caltrain, making its location desirable for commuting Bay Area residents.  888 San Mateo is currently 96% leased and occupied. Average rents are between $2,600 and $4,000 per month.

“Receiving the LEED Platinum certification cemented the effort of SRGNC’s dedicated team, and its commitment to developing environmentally conscious projects,” said Ken Busch, Vice President for Residential Development at SRGNC. “The location includes great walkability and transportation options and we are proud to achieve the prestigious LEED Platinum certification for this amazing project.”

The community was designed by TCA Architects, and includes underground parking, a pool, spa, fitness center with cardio-theater, yoga and Pilates studio, outdoor kitchen and courtyard lounge, community room and the latest in technological amenities for its residents.

The community’s location makes it exemplary urban-infill, while also ensuring access to variety of alternative transportation options:  downtown San Mateo and Burlingame are bike friendly, and 888 San Mateo residents will have easy access to Caltrain. Contributing to the LEED Platinum certification, every unit is equipped with low-volume water fixtures, low-e windows, R-30 attic insulation, advanced filtration systems and Energy Star appliances. The landscaping is efficiently irrigated to reduce outdoor water-use. Chemical free, low emitting materials were used throughout the interiors, supported by top-notch air filtration and continuous ventilation fans. Nearly all construction waste was sorted and recycled. Supporting the transit oriented goals of the project are an on site car share facility, bike storage areas with repair tools, and electric vehicle charging stations.
