About LEED

LEED, or Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design, is a green-building certification program that recognizes best-in-class building strategies and practices.

To receive LEED certification, building projects satisfy prerequisites and earn points to achieve different levels of certification. Four levels of certification exist; the number of points a project earns determines the level of LEED certification the project receives.

Certification thresholds are: certified, silver, gold, and platinum.

The Harriet Street Residences, located in the SOMA neighborhood of San Francisco, opened in 2012 and have been popular with CCA students.
