How Sacramento Architecture Is Changing Our City For The Better

Even as some of the fanfare has dwindled around the Kimpton Sawyer Hotel and Downtown Commons — unquestionably the most high-profile projects in Sacramento in many years — new developments are continuing Sacramento's evolution. We’re honoring the most notable of these in our annual Best Real Estate Projects edition of the Business Journal.

Our project of the year is The Hardin. Ten years in the making, The Hardin has transformed a formerly decrepit section of the old K Street Mall into a vibrant gathering place with a mix of apartments, bars and restaurants.

The Hardin is one of several projects we honor that are creating more urban living spaces in Sacramento. Others include Q19, a four-story apartment complex with ground-floor retail. The project targets young professionals, as it’s situated close to major employment centers and several light-rail stations and boasts features like electric cars available for rent. There’s also 19J, one of the most innovative examples of “micro-units” in Sacramento, with apartments averaging about 415 square feet, rooftop patios, a communal kitchen and resident managers who help organize social events.

While it certainly isn’t new, the Sacramento Memorial Auditorium, built in 1927, is being honored for its recently completed renovation. While the development team added modern upgrades, like new seating and state-of-the-art audio-visual equipment, the building remains a unique historic landmark.

Another historic building that received a makeover is The Bank. Located in a building constructed in 1912, The Bank is now a three-story, 30,000-square-foot destination with multiple restaurants, bars and a rooftop garden.

But not all the projects we honor are so flashy. After years of struggling to meet the community's growing demand from its limited facilities, the Yolo Food Bank recently opened a 42,000-square-foot building. The new space enables the nonprofit to serve some 19,000 households every month and distribute 4 million of pounds of food per year.

These are just some of the real estate projects we honor that are helping shape Sacramento's future. From industrial parks and health centers to performance spaces and unique restaurants, these projects represent the dynamic nature of the region and the evolving tastes of the people who call it home.
