Sacramento City Council last week gave the okay for a residential project that will replace the Sutter Memorial Hospital in East Sacramento. The hospital will be closing its doors–which has been open since the late 1930s–once the new hospital in midtown is operational this fall.
Known as Sutter Park, the 120-home development would be developed on 20 acres of land within one of Sacramento’s oldest neighborhoods. It would include a mixture of classic architectural styles, from traditional park homes, to row homes, to cottages, to mixed-use housing on top of retail.
You can stay up-to-date by visiting the project website.
Cool tidbit: The area that we all know today as East Sacramento was established in the mid 1800s as Sutter Township, and it was home to some of the region’s most productive farms, dairies, orchards and nurseries.
