A new mixed-use project has been proposed for development at 5230 Folsom Boulevard in East Sacramento. The project proposal includes the construction of a new four/five story building offering spaces for residential and retail uses. Plans call for the demolition of an existing single-story office building on the site.
Sutter Capital Group is the project developer. Vrilakas Groen Architects is responsible for the designs.
The project site is a parcel spanning an area of 0.63 acres. The new project proposal presented to the City Planning Commission seeks approval of a four/five story mixed-use building offering spaces for residential and retail uses. Floor plans showcase 67 apartment units and retail space on the ground floor of the mixed-use structure. The total residential built-up area measures 62,875 square feet. Proposed ground-floor retail spaces would be 2,000 and 1,000 square feet. The project site is currently developed with a single-story office building built in 1962 and a neighboring parking lot.
The residential units are proposed as a mix of studios ranging from 480 to 620 square feet, one-bedroom units from 717 to 803 square feet, 1.5-bedroom units from 736 to 1,000 square feet and two-bedroom units ranging from 840 to 1,200 square feet. The ground floor will also have spaces for a bike storage and a lobby. Fifty parking stalls would be designed within the building podium behind the commercial spaces and bike parking on the first floor. The second floor proposes a podium roof, offering 5,500 square feet of onsite amenity/open space. Apart from one 602-square-foot apartment on the first floor, all apartments are on upper floors.
A project application has been submitted, awaiting review and approval. The estimated construction timeline has not been announced yet.
