Permits have been filed for a six-story dormitory at 5900 Newman Court, East Sacramento. This new building will be just off of Carlson Drive. It will help continue California State University Sacramento’s growth, a large university with over thirty thousand students. The area has access to Sacramento’s light rail system via the University/65th Street station or 59th street station.
The permit calls for the construction of a 210-unit dormitory, yielding six hundred beds across 290,270 square feet. The building will provide students with apartment housing. Units will range from 460 square feet to 1,405 square feet per dwelling, with 50 set up as one-bedroom units, 60 two-bedroom units, five three-bedroom units, and 95 four-bedroom units. A planned 118 parking spaces will be included on-site.
The structure will span six stories. While the building will have a concrete podium, the rest of it will be made of wood. Niles Bolton Associates is responsible for the design of the building.
The project is a sign of the university’s healthy growth. Previously, the college’s development was boxed in by the American River, a freight rail line, J Street, and College Town Road. With the proposal of such a significant project, the permit hints to a more massive school campus and more construction in the general area.
The address is currently occupied by a one-floor structure for the Newman Catholic Community. Most, if not all, of this property, will likely be demolished with the future dormitory structure.
An estimated completion date or construction costs have not been announced.
