The Warren


Development Description:                                                                    

The proposed project includes 118 market-rate one and two bedroom rental apartment units, 5,195 square feet of ground floor retail along 16th Street and 123 parking spaces on the first floor and in the basement. The project is named for former California Governor and U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice Earl Warren, under whose leadership landmark court rulings were issued that significantly advanced civil rights in the United States.   


Site demolition and soil cleanup began on April 1, 2014 and will be completed in the first week of June. The U.S. Environmental Protection awarded CADA an Brownfields Cleanup Program grant which CADA is using to fund the soil cleanup.  Foundation excavation will start in early July, followed by construction of the foundation and the concrete podium.  The Warren will be the first Sacramento residential project to feature modular residential construction techniques. Production of the residential modules will start in late summer at the Zeta Communities facility at the former McClellan Air Force Base and the modules will start to be delivered to the site in the  fall 2014. The project will be completed in the summer of 2015.


The site is located at the northwest corner of 16th and N Streets, one block east of Capitol Park. The State of California’s East End Complex is located immediately to the north of the site. The Inn off Capitol Park and CADA-managed apartments are located directly across N Street to the South. The CADA-managed Park Mansion and Lombard apartments are located directly to the west on 15th Street. The recently-completed CADA Legado de Ravel project is located to the south at 16th and O Streets.  The Sacramento City Unified School District is soliciting development proposals to construct a mixed-use project across 16th Street from the Warren.

Building Design:

The design is contemporary and intended to provide an effective transition from the East End Complex of office buildings to the north, the residential Capitol Park neighborhood to the south,  and the Midtown neighborhood to the west.  The exterior will be clad in a combination of cement panels, stucco, porcelain tiles, and sheet metal.  The residential entrance will be on N Street. The parking entrance and exit will be from the alley. Along N Street, the streetscape will include a corner bulb-out and three storm water retention planters to be constructed with Proposition 84 grant funding provided by the Strategic Growth Council.  They will be constructed as part of CADA’s effort to construct the first storm water retention planters in the Central City and are part of a large-scale greening effort CADA is leading within the 16th Street corridor.  The first two storm water planters are already in place at 16th and O Street.
