The Paseo Verde development project consisted of the new construction of 120 residential units, and approximately 30,000 ft2 of community program and retail space adjacent to the Temple University Train Station. The goal of the project was to provide affordable and market-rate transit oriented housing.

As part of its role, CSA was responsible for the design of mechanical and electrical systems. This included preparation of an energy model to optimize gas, electric and domestic water usage for each apartment unit. . As the nation's first LEED for Neighborhood Development Platinum Project, the building’s green amenities include photovoltaic solar panels, spacious green and blue roofs, an energy efficient building envelope and MEP systems, comprehensive storm water management system, and the use of locally produced, recycled and renewable materials – providing residents a sustainable, healthy living environment, as well as cost savings through effective reduction in both water and energy use. Architectural firm Wallace Roberts & Todd was awarded the AIA Pennsylvania Award for Architectural Excellence, Citation of Merit, 2012.
