The Livable City Awards and Member Celebration provide an opportunity for Livable City to recognize innovators, advocates, and public servants for their leadership and accomplishments and celebrate with our amazing members and friends.
The Livable City Board of Directors is honored to award David the Livability Innovator award for several reasons. First, for his innovative design work, particularly in affordable housing, despite budget, zoning, and planning restraints. Second, for his work in mixed-use development, thoughtfulness in street frontage, and implementing low-cost sustainable building practices. Third, for the construction of Zero Cottage—San Francisco’s first Net-Zero Passive House certified residence, and StoreFrontLab—an interactive exploration of the storefront as a place of community, creativity, and local industry.
