The ULI Case Studies site showcases member projects and developments that are especially innovative in their approach and employ best practices in real estate and urban development. The case studies highlight innovative and inspiring projects while providing practical guidance for developers, architects, consultants, public officials, and investors. The project examples can also make excellent educational tools for professors, students, young professionals, community groups, and anyone interested in learning about the development and land use process.
ULI has published its second Net Zero Deal Profile featuring a net-zero-ready building—HopeWorks Station North located in Everett, Washington. (ULI Members can read the first Net Zero Deal Profile here.)
HopeWorks Station North is a development where affordable housing, workforce development, and job training combine with innovative sustainability elements to improve not just the residential life on-site but also the planet. Owned by HopeWorks and Housing Hope, this mixed-use retail and multifamily housing development provides comprehensive housing, social services, and job re-entry services for low-income, unhoused, and veteran populations. As underserved populations are impacted the most by climate change through disproportionate health impacts and limits upon financial means, this building showcases both practically and symbolically the importance of acknowledging and addressing this opportunity. The goal of Hopeworks Station North was to be able to take the operational energy savings from a Net Zero Energy building and invest these savings back into programs for serving the needs of the residents and community.
