The Railyards project

Sacramento Railyards

project overview

The Railyards property is located just north of Downtown and south of the River District. Once serving as the western terminus of the 1860s Transcontinental Railroad, today the Railyards continue to house a major transportation hub and will soon be home to a dynamic mixed-use, transit oriented development. The 244-acre site will transform the historic Union Pacific site into a dynamic, urban environment featuring a state-of-the-art mass transit hub that will serve residents, workers, and visitors.

In October, 2016, the City Council approved planning entitlement for the Sacramento Railyards. The project includes entitlements for the following:

  • 6,000 - 10,000 dwelling units  
  • 514,270 square feet of retail  
  • 2,757,027 - 3,857,027 square feet of office use  
  • 771,405 square feet of flexible mixed use  
  • 1,228,000 square feet of medical campus  
  • 1,100 hotel rooms (keys)  
  • 485,390 square feet of historic and cultural uses  
  • 33 acres of open space
  • A soccer stadium with 19,621 seats, and potential to expand to approximately 25,000 seats
