Welcome to the Washington District
The Washington District is an urban 194-acre historic neighborhood located on the West Sacramento riverfront within a mile of downtown Sacramento. The area is designated for pedestrian-oriented, transit served development due to its large commercial developments and proximity to downtown Sacramento employment centers. Revitalization plans feature 3,300 residences, 2.4 million square feet of commercial office and 350,000 square feet of retail.
In 2015, the City received an Affordable Housing and Sustainable Communities grant from the California Strategic Growth Council to improve and enhance pedestrian and bicycle circulation and combined it with local funds to rehabilitate underground infrastructure. The video shows the above ground transformation of the District--wider continuous sidewalks, historic street lights, new landscaping, new businesses and public art. The City will be releasing a master developer request for proposal (RFP) later this year for a large parcel in the District.
