I like this idea. I really like the design of the bridge and I think that doing something like the pedestrian bridge in New York would be really awesome for the city! The only worry that I have is that the new I Street Bridge has a design that could also have a garden on the bridge, but regardless I think this project is entirely doable and could be built around the same time as the I Street Bridge.

I have to say I also really like the amphitheater as well. It could be a great gathering place and give a great view of the river. When there are performances it will be a wonderful sight to watch a show for the children and see the river and boats in the background too. I do worry that the city will not like the idea though because I thought you couldn't build anything by the river due to flood concerns?

I hope the renderings of the other proposals will come out soon so we can change and add stuff to Old Sacramento.

I would love to see something like this come to fruition! The tunnel connecting downtown to old town right now is not exactly pleasant.

^^^^ There is zero chance of this happening. And frankly I'm glad. The bridge needs be fairly high to clear the freeway. I guess that's why it's extended into Old Sacramento like the High Line. But it should end at Front Street. The tunnel is crap but it doesn't have to be. There's so much they can do with it. And what about putting up some noise barriers?

Also in the article “CBRE and CIM representatives said they hope to land an anchor tenant by the time public review is complete, so they can proceed to construction. They didn't provide a timeline for when work would begin or what the estimated project cost would be, though the building would take about 30 months to build, they said.”

Very cool that they will be moving forward. Any idea whether the crown of the building was modified?

No idea about the crown. I think it’s a pretty good design, hopefully they will get a primary tenant.

I was thinking about vanir tower, and competition it would create. Their site says

Quote:
A Mixed-Use 250 key Luxury Hotel, 50 Luxury Condominiums, 100,000 sf of Class A commercial office space, and ground floor retail and destination first class restaurants.
Has anyone heard if they have landed a hotel yet? Assuming they could find a hotel, they could probably occupy 20-30K of the 100,000sqft? And perhaps be close to where they need to be.

Where did you find that? Vanir Tower project is dead and the developers are coming up with a new project on the site soon.

If you go to the project's website, you'll find new details on their proposal. No rendering yet

Based on the proposal and comparing it to the Sawyer I actually think the Vanir proposal could hit 300 ft. It has the same amount of hotel rooms (250) 5 more condos for sale (50) and about 60,000 sq ft more office space than The Sawyer (100,000 sq ft for Vanir). And plus the Vanir site is not as big as The Sawyer, meaning Vanir will probably build taller than The Sawyer.

It looks like you tipped off Ben van der Meer for this article: https://www.bizjournals.com/sacramen...r-concept.html

^^^ I hope this means a redesign. The current one looks dated and not very contextually appropriate.

The new Vanir Tower looks great! Hoping this gets done.

301 Capitol Mall has a nice site... but the concept itself looks unfinished - the top particularly.

Caught this on channel 13 regarding the makeover of Capitol Mall. Seems like a missed opportunity to me. It says ground breaking in 2022.
