New plans have been published for the redevelopment of an acre of undeveloped land into 34 new homes at 3137-3139 Rio Linda Boulevard in the Hagginwood neighborhood of North Sacramento. The project will merge two vacant parcels, resulting in three new structures and surface parking. Sacramento-based RAD-Development is managing the application and design.
The three-story infill will create around 36,140 square feet across three buildings. Unit sizes will vary with six one-bedrooms, nine two-bedrooms, 16 three-bedrooms, and three four-bedrooms. Of the 34 units, 12 are distinguished as Additional Dwelling Units. The structures will cover just 35% of the 0.94-acre property, with most of the property paved by surface parking and inner-lot roads. Some landscaping will act as a buffer around the buildings. Additional parking will be included for 16 bicycles.
Deborah A. Stevens is listed as the project architect. The plans incorporate fiber cement panels with the massing broken up by setbacks, mid-structure stairwells, balconies, and a scattering of window shapes. Vertical bands of color will help residents and visitors distinguish buildings and entrances.
JTS Engineering is the project’s civil engineer. William Reyes-Perez, a Dallas resident, is listed as the property owner.
The property is located along Rio Linda Boulevard, close to Arcade Creek and the Northern Bike Trail. Residents will be close to Richardson Village Park. The 15 bus line runs along the boulevard, providing residents with quick access to the commercial center of Old North Sacramento. Downtown Sacramento is around half an hour away via public transit or bicycle.

Street parking is so outdated. Waste of space. If you must, put it underground or at the first level.
Not a bad location for this at all, but less parking would be nice. I think we should be building way more stuff like this along the Sacramento Northern trail, it’s very convenient for getting downtown fast!
i count 27 spaces. that’s less than 1 per unit. it’s very difficult to get around this area of Sacramento with a car — especially for a family building like this (lots of multi-bedroom units). putting parking underground is hugely expensive, and definitely doesn’t pencil in this low-density area. putting it in a podium would also be expensive, change the construction type, and probably eliminate units because there is a 3 story height limit. eliminating parking makes sense in many places, but not all places.
