What is the plan for Sacramento's Railyards?

Probably one of the most exciting projects happening in Sacramento, CA. If you are a local you know what the railyards are. You can see them going over highway 5 headed towards North Natomas. They are big, empty and haven't been touched in years. Now it is time for them to shine with a brand new development plan.

What once served as the western terminus of the 1860s Transcontinental Railroad, will soon be transformed into a dynamic, urban mixed-use hub for residents, workers, and visitors.

The 244-acre development would include 1 million sq. ft. of retail, 5 million sq. ft. of office, housing, theaters, parks, hotels, museums, a Kaiser Permanente hospital, and a proposed Major League Soccer stadium.

The Railyards specific plan envisions high-rise housing with 6,000 residential units. Most of the railyard would be designated as a central business district, with residential, retail, and office space. The area surrounds the central shops buildings and includes east of 7th Street, where the proposed stadium would be.

In the northwest corner of the property, the designation of a hospital district would be for a planned Kaiser Permanente medical center. At the far eastern end of 10th Street, the designation would be commercial with mostly smaller businesses, such as repair shops and warehousing.

Infrastructure is currently under construction, and the ending date for the project is still unknown.
