Developer Mark Friedman plans to ask West Sacramento this month to let him build up to 3,000 homes on 50 acres near Raley Field and the Sacramento River, up from the 1,750 homes he proposed a year ago.
He’s responding to the continued strong market for housing.
The condos and rental lofts would help create one of the most distinctive ventures proposed in the region. Condo towers would rise along a half-mile of landscaped riverfront. Behind them would be a cozy, Euro-style downtown built around an oval park. One million square feet of offices would allow for jobs, with about 200,000 square feet of retail for services, stores and restaurants.
The first building would be a 250-condo mid-rise Friedman wants to build on the old Empire Electric site, 860 South River Road.
Friedman, president of Fulcrum Property Corp. of Sacramento, intends to send his application for the entire venture to the city this month. If West Sacramento approves, construction could start by mid-2007.
