Inside The Creamery at Alkali Flat

What was once home to the Crystal Cream and Butter Company is now a driving force in Sacramento’s housing boom. The Creamery at Alkali Flat will recreate one of the most preeminent neighborhoods in Sacramento history by developing a crafted community that invites its residents to “Own the City.”


With the revitalization of the downtown area in mind, home builder BlackPine Communities intends to provide a vibrant neighborhood for distinguished home buyers, professionals, empty nesters, and anyone who loves the excitement downtown has to offer!


“Our goal is to create a neighborhood that is transformative and durable for generations to come. We want to provide a unique environment that brings together a diverse set of individuals and families,” says CEO of BlackPine Communities, Mike Paris. “The homes we are offering respectfully frame the elegance of the Victorian craftsmanship that surround this historic community, while keeping the next generation of residents in mind.”

The Creamery will provide 8.5 acres of residential space and 122 modern, single-family homes in the heart of Sacramento. The striking model homes of this community provide a glimpse into the chic neighborhood’s personality–including interior design inspiration from reputable San Francisco interior stylists Dot & Bo. This community is pertinent to the proposed housing initiative to create 10,000 homes and double the population of Sacramento within the next 10 years.

The contemporary tri-level homes of The Creamery, starting in the high-$400,000s, reside at the corner of 10th and D Streets. They will feature amenities not found in the urban core including oversized two-car garages; three neighbor-friendly promenades; an exclusive ‘bark park’ area; on-site private guest parking; a half acre of urban gardens and planter boxes; and optional rooftop patios to enjoy impressive views of the Sacramento skyline.

The Creamery at Alkali Flat is minutes away from the highly-anticipated Golden 1 Center and proposed site for the new Sac Republic FC Stadium in the Sacramento Railyards. Additionally, residents will have the unique opportunity to walk, bike or ride to professional sporting events and community theatres, restaurants, clubs, coffee shops, stores and services which are all within a close proximity to the homes.

BlackPine Communities is no stranger to creating beautiful neighborhoods. Their other community developments include Molly’s Walk at Diamond Creek in Roseville and Curtis Park Village.
