One of Oakland, CA’s most historic hotels has just celebrated a grand reopening — and will soon boast an impressive GreenPoint Rated certification. On May 15, 2014, the GreenPoint Rated team joined the East Bay Asian Local Development Corporation (EBALDC), Oakland Mayor Jean Quan, StopWaste staff and many others gathered to celebrate this achievement.
Built in 1929, the California Hotel is a treasured part of Oakland’s rich cultural history. Acquired by EBALDC in 2011, the building has undergone extensive renovation, including many green and energy efficiency upgrades. Today, it provides 137 homes that are affordable and modern. And as the GreenPoint Rated label affirms — safe, healthy, and green as well. The hotel is in the final stages of achieving its certification, which will be awarded soon. Congratulations to EBALDC!
