The Sacramento Business Journal’s reporting that a city-appointed selection committee has recommended both D&S Development and David S. Taylor Interests Inc., to develop vacant parcels on the 700 and 800 blocks of the pedestrian-oriented street. The final decision of who wins will be made by the Sacramento City Council, which is expected to address the matter in July. The other teams have proposed larger projects on the two blocks.
From what I have learned in looking over the committee’s own numbers, if they were to choose D&S and Taylor for the site, their proposals would require the largest city subsidies to deliver the smallest number residential units. It also looks to me as if David Taylor’s getting favoritism again. Yeah, he's got a proven track record, but so do the Rubicon Partners, developer of The Citizen hotel. The numbers don’t lie Council members, Rubicon can offer more bang for the buck and I suggest you take a second look at everything they can bring to K Street.
