The $300-million Taube Koret Campus for Jewish Life is a collaborative initiative by the Albert L. Schultz Jewish Community Center in Palo Alto, the Jewish Home in San Francisco, the Jewish Community Federation and local community leaders.

The parcel was an EPA brownfield redevelopment site, which before undergoing construction was cleaned completely to meet and exceed the requirements of local agencies.

The 8.5-acre campus is home to a multiuse, intergenerational community center and independent and assisted living facility for seniors consisting of the 145,000-sq-ft Oshman Family Jewish Community Center, and a 310,000-sq-ft Jewish senior residence, all over a podium parking structure. Eco-conscious building practices, systems and programs went into the project’s planning, design and construction. Twenty percent of construction materials were made from recycled products and 95% of construction debris was recycled or otherwise diverted from landfills. The campus has achieved LEED silver certification.
