From an old highway to a vibrant district in the Central City
Since 1978, CADA has been about building neighborhoods for people, not for profits. As a self-supporting public agency, fiscal prudence is a must. But we’re also driven by another bottom line: to build safe, affordable and environmentally sustainable urban neighborhoods that people are happy to call home.
The State of California acquires 42 blocks to build a monumental State office campus but is then unable to complete its construction.
Over 75% of the structures on these 42 blocks are demolished. What was a thriving neighborhood becomes a sea of surface parking lots.
Blighted conditions result in a call for action & the creation of CADA. CADA removes blight & rehabilitates dilapidated structures.
Through public-private partnerships CADA develops hundreds of dwelling units affordable to low and moderate income households.
In a national recession, CADA continues building housing and constructs a state office building and an athletic club.
CADA works with a local developer to build the first new market rate apartments to be privately financed in downtown Sacramento in 10 years.
A robust housing market supports construction of many new CADA projects providing quality urban-infill housing.
CADA rebuilds R Street and constructs housing affordable and attractive to artists & working families.
CADA and its partners will complete 200 additional homes for city dwellers in 2014 and 100 more in 2015.
