Sacramento Proposals of Times Past

Lot A on Capitol Mall 1989

A little over two years ago I started a thread on devoted to the many proposals that never saw the light of day in Sacramento and the many reasons why they failed. Scattered over seven pages, about thirty proposals (with more to come) and renderings detail the many reasons why they failed. Everything from tight financing forces, Federal government mandate, and limit height to protect the Capitol, it's a trip down memory lane and will make you wonder what our city could have been. A big one I still need to put together and post is from the late 1980’s when the Centrage project along along with many others as time permits me. Click here to check it out.
