State Capitol Annex

If you have not heard, back in 2017 a plan was launched to demolish the State Capitol annex on the east side of the building and replace it with a modern office building. In addition, the plan also includes building a private underground garage and underground visitors center. This is a billion-dollar plan at a time the State has a $54 billion deficit due to the impact of Covid-19. Read more in Sactown Magazine where investigative reporting puts a spotlight on this boondoggle with public monies!

In late September, Gov. Newsom said he wants to explore the possibility of 75% of state workers telecommuting after the pandemic ends.

Safe Credit Union Convention & Preforming Arts Centers Construction

Safe Credit Union Convention Center construction - K Street

Both the Convention & Preforming Arts Centers are scheduled to be completed in March of 2021, about a five month delay from the original opening date of October 2020. The estimated $196 million renovation/expansion of the SAFE Credit Union Convention Center will add meeting rooms, exhibit halls and more lobby and kitchen space. At roughly $85 million, the renovation of the SAFE Credit Union Performing Arts Center will enhance the theater’s aesthetic appeal, improve its lobby and make the venue more accessible to disabled patrons. Work also will be done on the theater’s loading dock, which will allow it to host larger shows.

The stretch of 13th Street between J & K Streets looks to be a new dead space where a 60 foot wall now stands. This area use to have both a coffee shop & café and lots of outside seating, but now it appears to be sterile sidewalk... the forgotten west side. Image below to see what I'm talking about.

Fort Sutter Hotel

Fort Sutter Hotel - Sacramento, CA Capitol Ave. & 28th Street

The 105-room boutique hotel in Midtown Sacramento appears to be nearly completed and ready to cater to B-Street Theatre and Sutter Hospital visitors. The hotel will include high ceilings and a fireplace and the design will be reminiscent of a big-city boutique hotel.  The hotel will also be one of the first Tapestry Collection hotels, under the Hilton name, in California. Completion of the project is projected to be 2020. It looks like Restaurateur Randy Paragary has added a nice addition to the neighborhood.
