LJ Urban in the SBJ

There is a very good piece in the Journal about LJ Urban and what they are doing in West Sacramento and their approach to development. When you google the phrase "eco-urban", they come up number 2 in the results. If we google bomb maybe we can get them #1!!

They look to be a key in the development of West Sac as they control 7 sites in the area, including the B Street West Project just approved by the city.

Please check out their blog to help with ideas regarding future development that the company will be under taking as well as other good conversation on urban topics.

I know some of the team comment here (tell Mary cute kid), so this isn't a butt kissing comment, but I am envious of a group of people this young being able to find something they love to do ast such a young age, have found a way to make a career out of it while helping Sacramento achieve it's goals.

I can't complain about my job at all since it provides very well for my family, but I would have to loved to have found something I love doing at a younger age. Given what I have read and seen so far, I think we can look forward to great things from this group of people.

it's easy to think of skyscrapers and stadiums respresentative of a city's ambition - but i think it has more to do with companies like LJ Urban, who let strong ideals drive their projects. they have such a fresh and open approach to development, which is probably the best way to approach a city like sacramento - which seems to want to grow up, but still likes itself the way it is.

i'm sure they'll succeed in anything they do - and i hope more follow in their footsteps.

Another company I think we are going to want to keep our eye on is New Faze. They are planning some cool stuff on Del Paso Boulevard, which could be a great area, and an interesting infil project on R Street.
