Sustainable architecture, characterized by responsible site selection, promotes broad community benefits and reduced ecological impact. CityWalk Townhomes provide diverse housing options in a central city neighborhood within easy walking and biking distance to 100,000 jobs, schools and community.
The goal of the project was to provide a catalyst for downtown condominium development.
Our firm was the managing design and development principal of CityWalk. The homes were built on a long- vacant corner in downtown Sacramento. The goal of the project was to provide a catalyst for downtown condominium development.
The design follows a modern interpretation of patterns in Sacramento’s historic city center. Consisting of three buildings around a central, common courtyard, each unit has its own raised front porch, a rear deck, and a private yard. The corner unit is a live/work configuration with retail space featuring an artist’s gallery on the ground floor and living space above. The secure semi-subterranean shared parking allows for denser site utilization and minimizing the impact of cars on the site and the immediate neighborhood.
