We are working on a site which is previously developed with no existing greenfield or natural area.
Just to be 100% sure: this credit can´t be achieved if the site does not have no existing greenfield or natural area.
Thanks in advance

It is fine if your project does not have existing greenfield. This credit is about both protecting what's existing (if applicable) as well as restoring habitat to areas that did not previously have it. In short, if you have vegetated area within your project boundary, you can achieve this credit if you have enough qualifying space and design it appropriately.
And yes, Opt 2 is available if you don't qualify for Opt 1.

Thank you guys. That was my first interpretation but I needed a second opinion.
