The Railyards project
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.
The Railyards will be a mixed-use hub for entertainment, retail, housing, office, theaters, parks, hotels, and museums. The guiding plan for the area envisions the site to include over one million square feet of retail, 2.3 million square feet of office, a hotel, varying residential housing units, and recreational and cultural uses.
