Sacramento recently issued a green light on a 31-acre plan that aims to convert a train station into a pedestrian-friendly mixed-used development.

The Sacramento Valley Station Area plan includes affordable housing, offices, restaurants, pedestrian plazas, a community garden, bike trails and a wastewater recycling plant, among other features.

Sacramento recently issued a green light on a 31-acre plan that aims to convert a train station into a pedestrian-friendly mixed-used development.

“This plan is more than four years in the making,” said project manager Greg Taylor. “The plan positions Sacramento as a regional center for sustainable transportation and a leader in sustainable design technologies, which will help combat climate change.”

In addition to receiving city council approval, the plan is also reportedly the first municipality-led plan to be certified under the Living Community Challenge, which requires zero-energy and zero-carbon standards.

“Achieving this certification aligns our significant city and regional resource with the mayor and City Council’s agenda on climate action,” Taylor said. “Sacramento is the first city in the world to achieve this recognition.”

The train station originally opened in 1926 and under the new plan it will house a network of heavy rail, light rail, buses, shared rides and bike and pedestrian pathways along with an anticipated future high-speed rail.

Buildings will be developed to use 100% renewable energy via on- and off-site power generation.

Currently, the city is seeking funding for the initial phase, which will include the construction of the bus center. This is slated to begin in 2026.

The city has been mainly working with Perkins&Will on the project, in partnership with ARUP and Grimshaw Architects, EPS and AIM Consulting.
