The 240-acre Sacramento Railyards project represents one of the largest redevelopment projects in the Western United States. Infrastructure improvements, place-making features, and multi-modal connectivity and access to public transportation represented key objectives for this project. The HLA Group developed the landscape design guidelines and project improvements to achieve these goals. Water retention basins collect and filter stormwater runoff for streets and sidewalks. Iconic monumentation and decorative benches, tree grates, bike racks, and site furnishings create a unique identity. Artistic, undulating bridge overpass structures and enhancements further emphasize the modern design aesthetic. These streetscape improvements reinforce the distinct character of the site and will serve future development needs.
