Site 21

Development Description:
The proposed project is located at the southwest corner of 14th and N Streets overlooking Capitol Park.  It is a nine-story mixed-use development that includes 87 market-rate one, two and three bedroom condominium units, 2,800 square feet of ground floor retail and 67 parking spaces on the first floor and in the basement. The residential entrance/lobby and retail space are oriented along N Street.  The public right of way, the second floor terrace and eighth floor terrace are landscaped.

CADA’s Affordable Housing Mandate:
CADA’s mission is to help create a neighborhood for all, meaning all household types and incomes.  We are mandated to preserve 25% of our housing stock (meaning those we manage or build) as affordable units.  Because Site 21 will have 87 units, CADA will be providing 22 units of additional affordable housing to meet our mandate, so we are increasing both market-rate and affordable housing in the neighborhood.

Building Design:
The proposed design draws inspiration from the site and the city.  The overall building massing is broken down into smaller discreet elements to match the existing street wall along N Street.  The corner of the building at 14th and N takes advantage of its northeast solar orientation and views to the park by employing “punched” windows in solid wall articulated with a layer of finely detailed powder-coated aluminum extrusions.  This recalls the fine-grain detail and intricate light/shadow play found on the fenestration of historic buildings in Old Sacramento, the State Capitol, and other structures built during the city’s halcyon days.  The remainder of the design is clad in fiber-cement panels reminiscent of the white and gray granite found on the Capitol Building (‘Ambassador Black’ and ‘Sierra White’, quarried locally from Rocklin and Folsom), with the entry of the building highlighted in wood.  Windows recall sizes and proportions of the neighboring historic residential building and the Senator Hotel across from the park.  The landscape elements of the Project draw from the rich context of the Capitol Mall, using compatible tree species and drawing from lessons offered by the Native Plant garden, while the two landscaped roof decks provide a shaded perch for residents to take in views of the site and city-at-large.
