Smart growth has found a home in Downtown Davis… by building up in the core of our community. We’re creating a uniquely Davis place to live, work, shop and play in a new, sustainably built mixed-use landmark building on a site that has hosted high-impact industrial and commercial uses since the 1880’s.
Our high-quality rental residences are designed for empty-nesters and young professionals that want to live an urban lifestyle with pedestrian, bicycle and transit options for their daily needs.
Benefits to the community include higher-quality retail options on an inviting and relaxing ‘Rail Promenade’, new environmentally progressive housing options and more residents to advocate for the continued renewal of our cherished downtown. Also, the new building will create a large, ongoing net increase of financial benefit to the City that can help fund other community needs.
Our neighborhoods, Downtown Davis and Old East Davis, will benefit from the conversion of an eye-sore alley into a safer, European-style, pedestrian and bicycle friendly passage activated by retail and residential use. Underground utilities and improved streetscapes and sidewalks will create a more pleasing experience for residents and visitors.
