What if we had an opportunity to build an entire neighborhood from scratch–had a chance to make it perfect? We do. It is called The Bridge District.

TBD is Smart: Transforming 188 acres of highly coveted open land in the urban core, The Bridge District will become a vibrant 21st century neighborhood that is both faithful to our values today and restores the joys of a walkable world. New benchmarks for green living and entrepreneurship will be established here.

TBD is Engaging: Green space and great design are the ingredients; healthy and inspired living will be the experience. The Bridge District honors its nearly mile-long stretch of riverfront with a vision embracing the water as both recreational asset and touchstone of everyday life.

TBD is Connected: The Bridge District shifts the center point of the Sacramento region to rest squarely on the Tower Bridge.  From here, it’s mere minutes to just about anywhere—by car, bus, bicycle, and eventually, light rail. Everything you need, and everything you want, is well within reach.

Vertical construction is now underway for the first phases of development. So, in addition to being smart, engaging, and connected, The Bridge District is also: next.

Why TBD? You may have guessed it already: The Bridge District shares its acronym with "to be determined." How perfect is that? Most development processes tend to produce a building widget of some kind that is both predictable and reliable. Strip-mall widgets, gated-community widgets, big-box retail widgets–you get the picture. But what if these widgets were looking a bit tired relative to our values today? You would change the paradigm, right? That’s what the public/private pioneers building The Bridge District did. It wasn't easy, but the prize that awaits us–a thriving, sustainable 21st Century neighborhood–will be well worth the journey. Because as our public discussion continues to bloom, it will yield ideas and solutions that are not entirely knowable today. When the input changes, the output changes. The sky’s the limit.

The Bridge District is on track to create 4,000 residential units, five million square feet of commercial space and another 500,000 square feet of retail space. Translation: About 9,378 residents and 16,000 jobs in a green-certified, walkable, riverfront neighborhood.

Pre-sales of THE PARK MODERNS now underway. This first phase of park-side residential development by FULCRUM takes modern architecture one step further by thoughtfully designing a meaningful relationship to the outdoors. Be a part of this new idea for the city, right on the banks of our region's greatest natural asset: a 3/4 mile stretch of the Sacramento River! Contact Mollie Nelson, or call (916) 718-4377 for pre-sales inquiries.

20 September 2013 :
Designer Jerry van Eyck (melk!) will present at TEDx Sacramento on Friday, September 20th at the Crest Theatre. Jerry's been asked by Fulcrum to create a design concept for a riverfront "Barn" as a first step toward imagining how we might develop along the river's edge. Rumor has it that he might flash an image of his idea during his talk– don't miss it!

06 December 2012 :
