Pacific Landing is a mixed-use, 100% affordable housing project designed for people living on a limited income. Located on Lincoln Boulevard in Santa Monica on a 14,160 square foot lot within close proximity to downtown and the beach. The project is being developed by a Community Corp of Santa Monica, a local non-profit developer. The 4 story, 42,000 square foot building will replace an existing gas station. Thirty-seven residential units are provided for families in need.

Pacific Landing is a Net Zero / LEED Platinum project. The building has met ambitious goals for water efficiency, healthy materials, air filtration and ventilation, and stormwater management. The design of the building and its systems achieve energy reduction far below typical buildings of this type.  The project is all-electric, utilizing state-of-the-art central electric heat pump water heaters, high-efficiency electric spit system heat pump heating, and cooling, as well as all electric appliances. This resulted in the project not using any fossil fuels, such as natural gas. The project also reduces the amount of electricity it uses by using high-resistance insulation on the exterior envelope and high-performing windows to prevent thermal transfer.  The project also uses a highly reflective CRRC-1 Certified roof to avoid the heat island effect. Even though the electricity the project will use will be limited, it will also be offset through onsite electricity generation from a solar photovoltaic system. The roof will be equipped with a 40-kW solar photovoltaic system offsetting approximately 37% of the site's electricity usage. All of these measures are anticipated to result in this property using approximately 44% less energy than an average similar code-compliant building. These measures result in a development that is resource-efficient, healthy, reduces greenhouse gas emissions, and supports the sustainability climate action goals of the Community Corporation of Santa Monica and the City of Santa Monica.
