WE HARNESS THE POWER OF SYSTEMS THINKING TO CREATE PLACES OF ENDURING VALUE, SOCIAL CONNECTION, AND EXEMPLARY ENVIRONMENTAL STANDARDS

Zocalo Community Development is a pioneer in sustainable land use and real estate development and construction, with nearly 20 years experience in creating vibrant, inclusive, and activated spaces of enduring value and exemplary environmental standards. Here, our teams are driven by a singular goal: to develop buildings that make communities better – for people, for the community at large, and the planet.

Our capabilities include residential development ranging from affordable/workforce housing to luxury rental and for-sale residences; large format mixed-use developments; and full-scale construction management. We leverage our collective relationships with best-in-industry architects, engineers, and designers who share our vision to meet the social, environmental, and financial objectives of the asset.

OUR APPROACH

WE START WITH THE END-USER IN MIND

With every new opportunity, we employ a disciplined, systems-based methodology to first consider the people who will live and use our buildings, and the needs of the surrounding community and municipality. What does the neighborhood need? How will the space function? Will it stand the test of time? Can this building make a community better? Only when the right criteria are in place do we move forward on design and development.

CONNECTED TO COMMUNITY

We strive to be a good neighbor in the neighborhoods in which we build and we evaluate how we can benefit the community at large. Outreach begins at the planning stage to ensure that people are well-informed and excited about the positive impact to the neighborhood.

A LEADER IN LEED®

We design, develop, construct, and manage assets that meet the internationally recognized LEED® green building standards to conserve the energy, water, and natural resources to reduce operating costs and increase long-term value.

INTEGRATED IN-HOUSE CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT SERVICES

Having construction management capabilities in-house allows us to align our objectives from design through the physical build out of the structure. This integrated partnership allows us to collaborate more creatively, remedy issues more quickly, and create the best enduring value for the asset.

BEST-IN-INDUSTRY PARTNERS

We’ve developed relationships with best-in-industry architects, engineers, designers, marketers, and sustainability experts to ensure we deliver the best in design, functionality, activation, energy efficiency, and financial performance.

WE’RE INVETERATE INNOVATORS

We consistently seek new ways to deliver more innovative ways to save energy. From photovoltaics to rainwater irrigation to street tree planting to materials selection, we relentlessly research new technologies to improve the living environment for our residents, and long-term economic performance of the asset for our investment partners.
