MidPen is committed to using sustainable practices in our work and the communities where we serve. All new construction incorporates superior standards in environmentally-friendly design and materials that exceed California’s stringent energy codes. Drought resistant plants are used in landscaping.

We also continually invest in energy-efficient upgrades and renovations to our existing properties. Additionally, many MidPen communities are models for best-practices in infill and transit-oriented development.
