Regenerative City Assessment & Grid Design for San Francisco. Regensia’s Joshua Foss was contracted to lead a study that helped define regenerative urbanism for SF and outline the emerging approach’s robust value proposition. The study utilized Regensia’s REVATM platform to benchmark and evaluate the regenerative potential of SF’s Central SoMa district, and introduced innovative design strategies (including an Integrated Utility Hub/System) that would enable the district to become fully regenerative.
