Long after new building permits were filed for the Sac Bee Townhomes project at 1801 21st Street in Sacramento, the project has been approved for development. The proposal will replace two large surface parking lots with eight multi-unit buildings for a total of 48 homes.

Shopoff Realty is overseeing the redevelopment. TCA Architects is responsible for the design.

The project sits spans an area of 2.8 acres. The project will bring 48 townhomes located between 21st street, 23rd street, R street and Rice Alley. The eight six-unit structures will feature identical designs, with the exterior articulated with bay windows and setbacks. The facades will be wrapped with stucco, composite siding, woodlike siding, and brick veneer. Four inner-block streets and three inner-lot pedestrian paths will separate the eight buildings.

As covered previously, each townhome will be three floors tall with 2,090 to 2,390 square feet each, three bedrooms, parking for two cars, and a rear yard terrace. Around the complex, surface parking will be added for 43 cars, giving the project an overall capacity of 139 vehicles.

Shopoff has filed the townhomes infill next to two planned apartment complexes at 2100 Q Street. The larger apartment development will replace the former Sac Bee newspaper offices with 538 apartments. The same team of architects and engineers is leading the two applications.

HELIX is the landscape architect, and Tait & Associates is the civil engineer. The 3.16-acre property is located along 21st Street between R Street and Rice Alley. The development will merge two lots separated by 22nd Street.

The submitted application’s scope of work contains demolition, clearing & grubbing, grading and construction of underground utilities that are associated with the townhomes project. The estimated cost and timeline for construction have yet to be established.

  1. 139 parking spaces?! What happened to the goal of reducing cars or is that only for low income housing? Townhouses should have 1 car parking only. And what’s with the surface parking??
