Mid-rise Mixed-use in Sacramento

Hudson Sangree, in a front page feature for the Sacramento Bee:

For years developers have wanted to build soaring residential towers in downtown Sacramento, but the cost of high-rise construction and the down-to-earth prices condominiums can fetch here undercut their efforts.

Today there’s a wave of apartment and condo projects being built or planned with ground-floor shops and restaurants. Most are midrise structures framed with wood, not steel, on top of concrete. Experts say that type of construction is a more cost-effective way to build housing in central Sacramento that also adds to the city’s urban appeal.

It’s a good overview of how the widespread trend towards mid-rise mixed-use multi-family development is impacting Sacramento. I had the privilege of being interviewed for the story and several of my quotes ended up in the final piece. Of the eight projects mentioned, I have personally been heavily involved in four. It’s great to see this important trend getting general recognition.
