Makeover for downtown mall unveiled
By Terri Hardy -- Bee Staff Writer
Published 12:01 am PDT Thursday, August 17, 2006
Story appeared on Page A1 of The Bee


The owners of the aging Downtown Plaza have submitted plans to the city for a $100 million renovation and expansion that would include a Target, an upscale grocery store and a controversial theater complex above the Hard Rock Cafe.
The project comes with a steep request -- a city subsidy of as much as $20 million.


"We have a development plan that is going to have broad support and position the Downtown Plaza for the future," said Larry Green, senior vice president of development for the mall's owner, Westfield Corp. Inc. "It has a major entertainment component, a new major anchor."
City leaders said they are excited that the long-anticipated project finally has been submitted to the planning department. Officials for years have criticized Westfield's inattention and lack of reinvestment at the Westfield Shoppingtown Downtown Plaza.

"We've been asking Westfield to come back with a comprehensive makeover and it sounds like they've done that," said Vice Mayor Rob Fong.

Councilman Ray Tretheway, whose district includes downtown, said Westfield's proposal "removes many, many doubts" about the mall owner's commitment to the property.

The plan would expand by 140,000 square feet the 1.2 million-square-foot mall, said David Kwong, city planning manager.

Westfield envisions transforming the office-like exterior into a sleek, open and updated building. Said Green, "It will have a strong retail presence -- you'll see fashion, see display windows, see people moving up and down -- a significant change to the L Street facade."

The structure at 515 L St., which houses Morton's of Chicago restaurant, would be torn down. It would be replaced with a grocery store on the ground floor and a 400,000-square-foot Target on the second and third levels, city officials said.

Westfield has signed a letter of intent with Target but is not officially naming the company as its new anchor until the city and Westfield's board approve the plans. However, city officials say the store is a Target.

Westfield hasn't signed a supermarket, but has talked with Whole Foods, Nugget and Bristol Farms.

The seven theaters now at the west end of the mall would be eliminated and the food court expanded, with an addition of a new restaurant or more retail. A new, expanded 3,800-seat theater complex would be moved to Seventh and K streets.

The Hard Rock Cafe would be on the first level, a retail store on the second, and the cineplex on the third floor.

Westfield listened to a city request to place the theaters atop the Hard Rock to boost foot traffic on the struggling K Street mall, Kaplan said. But the engineering difficulties and extra costs inherent in that design would require city financial help.

Early last year, Westfield estimated that the theater job would take a $5 million city subsidy. Skyrocketing construction costs substantially boosted the price tag, Kaplan said.

"We're doing everything we can to make the city's desire a reality, but the reality is that it will take a higher contribution than estimated," Kaplan said.

Westfield will be competing for a dwindling amount of redevelopment funds. Several large projects have put in requests for city subsidies in excess of $104 million, but $22 million remains in the redevelopment kitty.

On Wednesday, the Downtown Sacramento Partnership board voted to recommend that the two biggest priorities are moving the Greyhound bus station and renovating Westfield.

Michael Ault, executive director of the Downtown Sacramento Partnership, said the two projects are pivotal to the success of the city's urban core. However, he said it's time to hear specifics about other tenants and detail why $20 million is needed.

Tretheway said the council would need to carefully weigh all applications for funds, including Westfield's. "The good news for them is that they have their plans in and they're now in line," he said. "If they'd kept missing their deadlines, they would have been out of the picture."

Meanwhile, community leaders have said they fear a larger complex will show art films and put the Broadway's venerable Tower Theatre out of business.

Century Theatres, which operates movies at Downtown Plaza, has said it wanted 16 screens in an expanded movie complex. But Century's merger with Cinemark Theatres has made it unclear how many screens would be built, Westfield said. Fong and other city leaders have said they will allow no more than 12 screens.

Luree Stetson, a member of the Tower District Alliance, said the position of Alliance and of Reading International, owners of the Tower, hasn't changed, she said. "A plan with 3,800 seats is a problem," Stetson said.

Plans were submitted last week to the city's development services department. It will take three to six months to go through the review process of design and environmental impacts, Kwong said. The Planning Commission has final approval of the project.

Westfield is also planning to submit a document detailing its costs and request for city subsidy to the city's economic development department. That department will evaluate the request and make a recommendation to the City Council by the end of the year, officials said

I actually like the plan. The renderings of the facade on the L street side seems nice. I wish Macy's can do a makeover of theirs. As far as Target, well I can live with that since there will be more residential units on the way. I was hoping for a Nordstroms. A full scale grocery store in downtown I support since there are none. Whether it's WF or Nugget, it will better serve that general community.

A Nugget would be better but i'm just partial to their selections of wine..

BTW do you have the renderings that can be posted or a link where they can be viewed? I'm curious what they look like.


On another note i really think that Macy's (or Federated) should be urged to give up one of their two store locations. The Macy's anchoring the west end of the Mall existed just fine prior to Federateds purchase of Weinstocks. By giving up the location at the est end Westfields could bring in a third anchor in addition to Macy's and Target.

Proposed airport terminal to be 'signature'
Supervisors OK design concept for one of biggest county projects ever.
By Ed Fletcher -- SacBee Staff Writer
Published 12:01 am PDT Wednesday, August 30, 2006
Story appeared in Metro section, Page B1


Compared to Sacramento International Airport's shiny Terminal A, Terminal B, built in 1967, has always been "Terminal Blah."
But Tuesday, the Sacramento County Board of Supervisors signed off on a design concept for a replacement Terminal B described as a "signature" regional gateway -- an airy glass structure suffused with filtered natural light.

Supervisor Roger Dickinson said it's important to make a statement to visitors whose opinions often are shaped by a city's airport and downtown.
"We have a great project in the making," Dickinson said. The design concept was approved 5-0. The new Terminal B -- which would be built alongside the existing terminal -- is part of a planned $1.1 billion airport expansion. Officials hope to begin construction of the replacement terminal by late 2008 and finish in early 2011. A parking garage would be built after the old terminal is torn down.

The new Terminal B would feature a 200-bed hotel stacked on the ticketing gateway and would be three times the size of the existing terminal. It would feature a split-level roadway for arrivals and departures and an automated shuttle moving passengers from the terminal to a 23-gate "island" concourse.

The design seeks to balance what has worked at other airports and the needs of local travelers. Among the design features:

• More street access to the building;

• Trams running every two minutes;

• A design that accommodates future growth with space set aside for a light-rail terminal.

The construction will be funded by fees paid by airlines and federal grants. But the sheer magnitude of the project did not escape the board.
"This is probably one of the biggest (projects), if not the biggest in terms of dollar amount, that the county has ever built. That is a big number," said Supervisor Don Nottoli. The board approval of a final design and an environmental review still is ahead.

The design concept selected from three choices was favored by the board, area residents who attended a June workshop and airport staff.
The building design seeks to draw on canopies of filtered light created by Sacramento's numerous tree-lined streets, officials said.
The new terminal will accommodate growing passenger traffic, which is expected to reach 16 million by 2020.

Passenger traffic currently is 10.2 million annually, officials said.
"We really need to build a facility to meet the passenger demands. We are at capacity," said Cheryl Marcell, an airport spokeswoman.

Light-rail stop near arena urged
RT envisions trolleys bringing thousands to events at the proposed railyard facility.
By Tony Bizjak - Bee Staff Writer
Last Updated 12:30 am PDT Thursday, September 28, 2006
Story appeared in METRO section, Page B1




Sacramento Regional Transit officials this week said they want to build a light-rail station near a proposed downtown sports and entertainment arena -- and transport at least 20 percent of the people attending Kings games or other arena events.

"The closer, the better," Regional Transit General Manager Beverly Scott said of the proximity of a rail stop to an arena. "Each block counts."

A recent RT study shows public transit plays a notable role in bringing fans to downtown arenas and ballparks in other cities.

The numbers vary: Up to 41 percent of those going to San Francisco Giants baseball games take transit to AT&T Park; 15 percent take Bay Area Rapid Transit trains to basketball games at the Oakland Arena; while just 3 percent do at Staples Center in Los Angeles.

"It's clear when transit service is provided -- that is quality service -- people will use it," Scott said this week, throwing her agency into the transportation debate at the proposed arena.

RT officials say they believe they can cobble together funds and have a station ready to go if and when an arena is built in the largely vacant railyard in downtown's northwest corner.

Sacramento County voters will be asked Nov. 7 whether they are willing to help finance an arena through a quarter-cent sales-tax increase. About half the estimated $1.2 billion in revenues is proposed for an arena, and the rest for other as yet undetermined improvement projects across the county.

Negotiations on details of the financing deal, however, have stalled.

Fans park an estimated 8,000-plus cars during Kings games at Arco Arena in Natomas. The team collects those parking revenues.

Team officials this week declined to comment on RT's desire to transport at least 3,600 fans to and from games, saying they haven't seen any specifics of RT's plans.

Kings President John Thomas said "some form of enhanced mass transit" generally does play a role in downtown redevelopment projects, including arenas, but cautioned that "every city is different."

"From our standpoint we just need to make sure that our customers who love what they have at the current location and do not view a downtown as ... (necessarily a better site) have assurance there is sufficient, safe and available parking," Thomas said.

Representatives for the city and the private company that intends to develop the railyard said they welcome light rail as a travel mode for arena events, and said the transit trains should play a key role in bringing people to the area's restaurants, stores, offices and residences.

A station near the arena would help reduce congestion, Sacramento Assistant City Manager John Dangberg said. That way, some fans would drive, some would take light rail, and those who live in the area or who work nearby could walk to and from the railyard district.

County Supervisor Roger Dickinson, the RT board chairman, said he has enjoyed taking transit to sports events in other downtowns, and thinks Sacramentans would too. "Simply put, it's fun."

Suheil Totah, project manager for Thomas Enterprises, which is planning apartments, offices, stores and restaurants in the railyard, said his company wants light rail, but prefers that it be a few blocks away.

"You want to create this great walking experience where you can get off a train and walk through a district with restaurants and retail uses," he said. "We don't want to create another Arco where people drive up ... and just leave. We want people to stay and enjoy a drink, or dinner or shop."

Totah said one of main avenues -- a meandering Fifth Street -- is planned to have only one lane in each direction, but extra wide sidewalks.

"It's a European feel we are trying to communicate," he said. "It's unusual for Sacramento."

Other key streets in the district, however, would be larger, with four and possibly six lanes.

The latest drawings for the district put the arena three blocks, or less than 300 yards, from the proposed Seventh Street light-rail station.

RT currently is building a station at the Amtrak depot at the southern end of the railyard, but a closer station would get substantially more use, RT officials said.

As envisioned by RT, the arena station could run trains directly to and from the transit agency's three existing light-rail lines.

One of those lines runs through Rancho Cordova and ends in the city of Folsom. It would be approximately a one-hour ride, end to end. RT officials say they plan a faster, limited-stop train on that line.

A second light-rail line runs to the junction of Interstate 80 and Watt Avenue.

The third line currently ends at Meadowview Road, but in the next few years is scheduled to be extended to Cosumnes River College.

The railyard light-rail station would be the first station on a line RT plans to extend, some day, from downtown, through Natomas to Sacramento International Airport.

More news from the Railyards:


Developer motivated to move quickly
For Thomas Enterprises, cleaning up rail site is good for business

By Chris Bowman - Bee Staff Writer
Last Updated 12:46 am PST Tuesday, January 23, 2007
Story appeared in METRO section, Page B1


Suheil Totah, vice president of development for Thomas Enterprises, recently set up shop in a historic building overlooking the railyard.


The railroad operators took 20 years hauling away topsoil they polluted at Sacramento's historic downtown train yard.

Stan Thomas, the new owner of the 240-acre site, believes he can finish the last third of the job in just two years -- all the while proceeding with plans for urban villages, public markets, museums, entertainment complexes and more.

That would surpass by fivefold the pace under Union Pacific Corp. and its predecessor, Southern Pacific Transportation Co.

How can Thomas outrun the kings of rail? Because his motivations are more powerful than a locomotive, according to officials with his development company, Thomas Enterprises Inc. of Atlanta.

Thomas Enterprises is anxious to recoup cleanup expenses and the cost of the property purchase -- figures the company declines to disclose. The faster the cleanup, the sooner Thomas will get city approval for development. The sooner the company sells parcels to developers, the faster it can pay off loans and turn a profit.

"You have a clock ticking on you because you are paying interest, and because you want to be ready to develop when the market is ready," said Paul Petrovich, who is redeveloping the former railyard in Sacramento's Curtis Park neighborhood.

"You will see in the next few weeks a lot of activity, a lot of dirt being moved around," said Suheil Totah, Thomas vice president for development, who keeps a pair of binoculars on his conference table overlooking the railyard.

The insurance giant AIG also has a financial stake in a speedy cleanup of the downtown yard.

Under terms of the Dec. 29 property transfer, Thomas paid AIG upfront the full estimated cost to finish the job in two years, plus an insurance premium ensuring the work will be done in that time. Any environmental remediation needed beyond 2008 will be on AIG's dime, Totah said.

The cleanup engineers and excavators also are under political pressure to move full speed ahead. Sacramento city officials are counting on the grand redevelopment to revitalize and expand the downtown area. And environmental officials are banking on the project as a showpiece to inspire cities to redevelop polluted properties, known in regulatory parlance as "brownfields."

"This is the poster child brownfield project for the whole state," said Paul Carpenter, who oversees the cleanup for the state Department of Toxic Substances Control.

Much of the yard is on reclaimed marsh and a lake known as China Slough or Lake Sutter, which the railroad routinely filled with debris through the early 20th century. Records on what was dumped are scarce. Rumors abound of old locomotives buried whole.

When Union Pacific acquired Southern Pacific in 1996, it assumed liability for removing the toxic wastes that had leaked, spilled or been dumped in what was once the largest industrial center west of the Mississippi.

Under an early 1980s state-enforced agreement, Southern Pacific began extracting millions of gallons of groundwater polluted with various solvents, mineral spirits, battery acid, diesel fuel and heavy oil that fueled steam engines. The daily pumping and cleansing of groundwater is expected to go on for decades.

The plume of contamination is contained, does not threaten drinking water wells and does not affect development, state toxics officials said.

Vapors emanating from soil contaminated with such volatile organic compounds, however, can seep through buildings and create a breathing hazard to occupants.

"We are going to assure there is none," said Fernando Amador, who also is supervising the soil remediation for the state toxics department.

Development can proceed during the cleanup so long as the state regulators have declared "no further action required" at the site under construction.

The sequence of the cleanup will follow the development timetable, which spans about 15 years, Totah said.

Construction can proceed during the cleanup on sites regulators have stamped "no further action required." AIG retained the environmental remediation company of ERM-West to finish the soil cleanup that it began under Union Pacific.

The first area targeted is a northwest corner parcel next to Interstate 5 where Thomas Enterprises has landed its first retail tenant -- Bass Pro Shops -- a fishing and outdoors emporium.

Excavators then move to the area planned for the 5th Street Emporium, with ground-level shops and restaurants and topped with residential units.

On track next would be the footprint that will be left after the planned relocation of the freight and passenger rails. The tracks are to move 300 feet north of the depot for a new transportation center.

Crews then will attack the Central Shops, where locomotives were built and rebuilt. Thomas Enterprises plans to transform these cavernous old brick buildings into a public marketplace on the scale of the Ferry Building in San Francisco and Boston's Faneuil Hall.

Totah said the cost of the insurance policy on the cleanup took into account the possibility of excavators' uncovering surprises.

Nassi secures Aura land
Sacramento Business Journal - 4:18 PM PST Tuesday, February 13, 2007by Michael ShawStaff writer

Denver developer Craig Nassi reached an agreement Tuesday --- the last day before a city of Sacramento deadline expired -- to purchase the land for the Aura condominium project at 601 Capitol Mall, after falling out of contract last summer with David Taylor, the landowner of the Aura site.

The city council had given Nassi just seven days to resolve the land issues for Aura, a 36-story, 268-luxury condo project designed by architect Daniel Libeskind, in order to qualify for a $10 million loan approved last week.


Nassi, owner of BCN Development, must have financing in place by March 31 under the agreement with Taylor, which entered escrow Tuesday.

"We won't sell to him unless he's got all the financing," Taylor said.

Reached by phone, Nassi said he's closing the loans and construction could begin in a few weeks.

"Everything is done," he said. "We just needed to get the land back under contract. The financing is done, it's there."

Work was supposed to begin months ago. Rising construction costs have made money for high rises scarce and led to several delays.

The land deal with Taylor requires Nassi to provide an immediate sum, two additional payments in March and a closing amount on March 31, Taylor said. He declined to say how much Nassi will pay for the land.

Nassi gave credit to city manager Ray Kerridge and assistant city manager John Dangberg for helping make the project happen.

"We've got a great downtown redevelopment agency," he said referring to the Kerridge and Dangberg. "They put in 50 to 60 hours each in the past week to get the deal finalized."

Sacramento Business Journal - 10:29 AM PST Thursday, February 15, 2007by Michael ShawStaff writer

A notice of default was filed Wednesday by a local investor who holds a $22 million loan on the Towers at Capitol Mall condominiums, just as the two principal partners in the stalled project are seemingly at odds about how to resolve millions of dollars of cost overruns.

The 53-story Towers project, a landmark building for Sacramento if constructed, is owned jointly by developer John Saca through his Saca Towers LLC and the California Public Employees' Retirement System, which committed $100 million.

Work stopped a month ago with little more than concrete pilings in the ground.

Through a series of written statements released Wednesday, John Saca expressed frustration with his "partners," or "partner" in varying instances, though he never names CalPERS directly, saying they have rejected proposals he has brought in to get bills paid and keep the default notice from being filed.

"This predicament is out of my control," Saca wrote. "I have proposed several alternatives to my partner on how we pay these bills, however, none have been accepted."

Saca did say of CalPERS: "I am not sure they are the right partner for this project."

While the default notice was not immediately available for viewing, Saca's representatives confirmed that it was filed by Joseph Mohamed Enterprises Inc. of Sacramento. The loan was originally made through First Bank and Trust for the $21 million needed to buy the land, according to Saca's representatives.

Joseph Mohamed said he purchased the note from First Bank and Trust last week.

"Almost all of the notes that we buy are settled before a foreclosure," Mohamed said. "This one is very well secured. They just need to resolve their differences. I feel very sure that they will."

Including that loan, a total of $35 million is already owed on the Towers project. Several liens have been filed by companies that have done ground work at the site.

Payments on the loan were due in December, but the Towers corporation does not have the funds to pay on that loan, Saca said. A six-month extension was offered, but the jointly-owned corporation did not accept the extension.

"I felt we should have accepted the extension," Saca wrote.

A spokesman at CalPERS said it is awaiting Saca's reorganization of his financing on the project.

"We have been in discussions," said Brad Pacheco. "We realize that the materials costs are higher than estimated."

The pension fund's involvement has not changed.

"We understand that the project is important for the city, but there really isn't any update from our end," Pacheco said. "We are still just talking through the issue."

CalPERS has not disclosed how much of its $100 million commitment it has delivered so far, but a source said it was $25 million.

Sacramento assistant city manager John Dangberg said the city is eager to see the situation resolved.

"Right now we have a hole in the ground at the gateway to the Capital," he said. "We'd like to see both sides compromise and come to a reasonable middle ground -- come to a solution to move this project forward."

The city committed an $11 million subsidy in the project, but that money won't be transferred until it is nearly complete.

Saca assured deposit-holders on more than 380 of the planned 804 condos that their money is in escrow, earning interest.

"I am extremely disheartened," Saca wrote of the state of The Towers. "This project is critical to the city of Sacramento."

Mohamed said he expects to hear a plan to resolve the outstanding debt from the Towers partners within the next two months.

New Developer for Library Lofts @ 8th and I street

Bob Shallit: Pinch hitter on deck for 21-story loft project
By Bob Shallit - Bee Columnist
Published 12:00 am PST Saturday, March 3, 2007
Story appeared in BUSINESS section, Page D1



A "nationally known" developer soon could be stepping in to build a 21-story housing and office complex at a downtown site abandoned by Texas home builder D.R. Horton.

Sacramento County Supervisor Roger Dickinson confirms reports that talks are under way with another developer for the county-owned site at Eighth and I streets.

"Things are going quite well," he says of negotiations. "The hope is that within 30 days we can go back to the board and say we have an agreement, that we're back on track."

The project -- called Library Lofts -- got off track in September when Horton backed out of an agreement to buy the vacant building and replace it with a high-rise.

The new developer is looking to build "essentially the same project as Horton," Dickinson says.

The original plans called for about 300 condos, ground-floor retail and 40,000 square feet of office space, some of which would be occupied by county departments. The new plans call for "a little more office, a little less residential," says Dickinson.

The supervisor isn't revealing the identity of the new developer, but says it's a "nationally known company that already has a presence in the Sacramento area."
