Planning permits have been filed to convert a three-story office into a mixed-use complex at 1800 3rd Street in Downtown Sacramento. The renovation will produce over a hundred homes and retail to the full-block structure. Heller Pacific and Hines are jointly sponsoring the project.

The applicant filed the preliminary Senate Bill 330 application in December last year. With SB330, the project will receive a streamlined approval process through the city’s planning department.

Renovations will bring 198,060 square feet across the 1980s structure, with 118,280 square feet for housing and a 60-car garage. The plans hope to bring 141 apartments of various sizes. Dwelling types include 39 studios, seven one-bedrooms, 93 two-bedrooms, and two three-bedrooms. A restaurant, coffee shop, a bar, and other residential amenities will join the housing.

The existing structure occupies a full 1.18-acre site across from the CalPERS regional office and the I-5 freeway. Future residents will be able to use a pathway under the freeway to access the Sacramento River Bike Trail. The structure is marked with a California State Park Commission historic plaque indicating the site of California’s First Passenger Railroad. The Sacramento Passenger Terminal used to board at Third and R Street beginning in 1856.

The California Public Employees’ Retirement System is the current property owner, according to reports from the Sacramento Business Journal. The estimated timeline and cost for construction have yet to be shared.

  1. Activity everywhere except moribund San Francisco.

  2. The pathway is actually over the freeway, not under it.

  3. Interesting that they cleared the encampment right next to the bike bridge this past month. Preparing for the development submitted?

  4. Hopefully they clear the huge encampment over there
