Downtown Plaza Demolition

Downtown Plaza Demolition






In a matter of 54 days, the corner of L and 5th Streets has been leveled and it looks as if prep work for the new arenas foundation have begun. That orange square in the lower left of the photo looks as if a tower crane might rise from there?

20,000-seat Stadium Plan

Sacramento Republic's proposed MLS stadium

Sacramento’s soccer franchise, Republic FC, announced plans yesterday to build a 20,000-seat stadium in the city’s downtown railyard.  And how would it be paid for? Questions remain over how the stadium will be financed. Mayor Kevin Johnson has said no city money will be used to help build the facility. Kevin Nagle, the lead investor in the expansion bid has said the Republic FC investor group will have the capacity to pay for the stadium, plus a league expansion fee of at least $70 million. No city money to help build the facility could really mean “city money, but only to help buy the land or provide tax breaks. Will see?

Downtown Plaza Demolition

Downtown Plaza, Sacramento, CA


This morning about 60 Turner Construction workers gathered at Downtown Plaza to officially start demolition work making way for a new arena. As reported by the Sacramento Business Journal, relatively little work will be visible for the first few weeks and the first buildings will actually start coming in down in two to three weeks.
