The vision of the Ed Roberts Campus started nearly a decade ago among seven non-profit organizations serving the Bay Area. The goal was to create a center devoted to advancing the rights of those with disabilities by providing services to enable them to live independently and without discrimination. Their efforts resulted in the creation of an 80,000 sq. ft. office complex with lots of common areas for community members to enjoy many amenities such as free Wi-Fi. The project is also one of the first low-income targeted population NMTC deals in the country, meeting the requirements of the program by hiring and employing individuals that are considered low-income employees. Designed to meet LEED-Gold specifications, the project incorporates a range of sustainable design strategies to serve the diverse needs of the occupants as well as the larger environment. As part of the construction process a neighboring BART transit station was revitalized, which connects directly to the project through the basement level.
