The River District is an 830-acre central city district that is quickly transitioning from a predominately commercial and warehouse district into one of Sacramento’s up-and- coming mixed-use, transit oriented communities. The historic commercial area will combine an eclectic mix of residential, office, retail and commercial uses designed to take advantage of multiple transportation options, open space and riverfront views while providing a wide range of employment recreation and housing.
With the American and Sacramento Rivers serving as defining features, the River District is a community connected by multiple modes of transportation, embracing bicycle and pedestrian pathways and light rail transit.
