Urban Land Institute Report: Transit Hub Would Work Well At Railyards With Entertainment Complex

By | 0 Comments | Feb 18, 2019

Via Think Big Sacramento, the Urban Land Institute has released a report touting the feasibility and benefits of locating a new downtown entertainment and sports complex and a regional transit hub together in the Railyards. There are some challenges, the report notes, but if they can be solved, the outcome would have a serious benefit for not just downtown but also the surrounding areas.

The report emphasizes the idea of a compact footprint for the transit facilities (a high-speed rail/commuter rail station on the south side of the track, for example, closer to the entertainment complex and downtown). It notes that locating the transit facilities near the arena would provide some cost benefits and would allow for an attractive plaza or commercial building between the train station and the entrance to the complex.

Check out the report for yourself. Lots of interesting notes, if you're into land use at all.
