Downtown Sacramento is gearing up for a fresh look with a new apartment building slated to replace an empty space at the corner of 10th and J streets, right next to Cesar Chavez Plaza. The ambitious project, proposed by Los Angeles-based T.A. Group, is currently seeking approval from the City of Sacramento.
Economic development director of the Downtown Sacramento Partnership, Scott Ford, is optimistic about this revitalization effort. Previous attempts to develop this spot into housing didn’t pan out, but with an experienced team and cooperation from the City of Sacramento, hopes are high for a successful outcome this time around.
Beyond housing, the ground floor of the building is earmarked for retail spaces. Ford sees this as a positive move, as residents typically contribute more to local businesses compared to office workers. This injection of activity is expected to bring about a thriving and prosperous neighborhood.
Unit counts in the upcoming new apartment building for Downtown Sacramento
This modern building will stand tall at eight stories and will offer a total of 256 units, catering to various needs with its mix of studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom units. Notably, the fourth floor is set to host a swimming pool, while the rooftop will transform into a spacious communal area. Additionally, a two-level parking garage with 151 spots, along with 62 charging stations for electric vehicles, will address residents’ parking needs.
Downtown Sacramento has already experienced positive change with the introduction of the Envoy by Anthem, a new apartment complex on 11th and J streets. The potential impact of the proposed development on 10th and J streets holds promise for a continued positive transformation in the neighborhood.
As per the City of Sacramento’s plans, a review of the design is scheduled for completion by the end of September. While a definitive start date for construction has yet to be established, the existing building will need to be removed beforehand. Stay tuned for updates as this exciting project progresses!
