Fish Out of Water

Musings and observations about life from an East Coast native now living on the Left Coast in the California State Capitol since 2004. This fish has made her home in Madison, WI (7 years); Portland, OR (2 years); Las Vegas, NV (7 months); Middlebury, VT (3 summers); Marne-la-Vallee, a small town east of Paris, France (6 months); Middletown, CT (3 years); and Marshfield, MA, the fish's coastal hometown 40 miles south of Boston (17 years).

Location: Sacramento, California, United States


Day 80: Capitol Yards

The area around Raley Field in West Sacramento, right along the banks of the Sacramento River, is the site of two current significant development projects.  To the north is The Capitol Yards, which appears to be a primarily residential project of future apartment homes along with some interesting urban amenities, including a salt-water pool and free bicycle rentals (are they really "rentals" if they're "free?"... just askin'...).

At least one of the options is quite modern, with lots of windows, based on the photo gallery image on the development web page:

I often run by this site, as I have a few different running routes that include this region of West Sacramento, depending on how long or how far I choose to run.  It's been interesting to follow the progress of this project, and I definitely want to tour the models once they're open. 

Mr. E and I always enjoy seeing new urban infill, and considering that many projects got stalled for several years during the worst of the real estate market, it's quite heartening to see some progress as construction moves forward on these sites.
