State of Downtown

21st Annual State of Downtown – January 22, 2019


State of Downtown 2019 | Building Value Downtown 

On January 22nd, nearly 900 local leaders gathered in the Hyatt Regency ballroom to celebrate all of the achievements made in downtown Sacramento last year and looking forward to all the exciting new projects on the horizon at the 21st Annual State of Downtown breakfast.

2018 was a remarkable year for downtown with the completion of key projects like Kaiser Permanente’s Downtown Commons Medical Offices and the opening of 43 new businesses are changing the way people experience downtown. With more people living, shopping and coming downtown than ever before it is safe to say that our city has no plans of slowing down anytime soon.

If you were not able to attend, here are some of the highlights and announcements that were made:

  • Kaiser Permanente announce they finalized the purchase of 18 acres in the historic Sacramento Railyards where they will build a new state-of-the-art medical center.
  • This year’s JVance Stewart Community Service Award was awarded in memoriam to Ali Youssefi for his commitment to making the city a better place for everyone and helping to shape our vibrant community.
  • Mayor Darrell Steinberg announced Ron Burkle has joined Sacramento Republic FC as lead investor which will strengthen the bid to bring a Major League Soccer team to Sacramento and hopes of a soccer stadium and entertainment district development within the Railyards.

2019 will be an exciting year for Sacramento to say the least and we can’t wait to see all of the new projects that will soon become a reality.
