Long-awaited Railyards plan to come to City Council on Thursday, Nov. 10

Downtown Railyard Venture, LLC, will soon be breathing new life into Sacramento, transforming 244-acres into a thriving community. Located in the heart of Sacramento, the Railyards is just north of Downtown and south of the River District.

Once serving as the western terminus of the 1860s Transcontinental Railroad, today the Railyards continues to house a major transportation hub and will soon be home to a dynamic mixed-use, transit-oriented development. The 244-acre site will transform the historic Union Pacific site into a dynamic, urban environment featuring a state-of-the-art mass transit hub that will serve residents, workers and visitors. The Railyards will still preserve the area’s historical significance while also embracing an innovative and exciting new vision for the community.

The Railyards will be a mixed-use hub for entertainment, retail, housing, office, theaters, parks, hotels and museums. The guiding plan for the area envisions the site to include over one million square feet of retail, 2.3 million square feet of office, a hotel, up to 10,000 residential housing units, a new Superior Court building, a major-league soccer stadium for Republic FC and a Kaiser Permanente medical facility.
