approximately $70 million and there little to show for it.
That's not how business deals work, real estate being no exception. The anchor may not even be unveiled until who knows when in the hopes that a new partner can salvage the project (in whatever form). Given CalPERS history, and the noted last paragraphs of the CIO article, I wouldn't be surprised if politics ultimately doom this project. Broome my be a ra-ra mouthpiece, but he's our ra-ra mouthpiece, and I can't blame him for really alluding to some possible shenanigans behind the scenes. I'm sure there's plenty of potential tenants who would look to fill space once built, and it's mighty tough to recruit companies if there's no space to put them.

On the project itself, it definitely isn't the most striking or innovative design, but it pushed the envelope in scale which is exactly what this city needs. It would've (or hopefully still will) provide much-needed premier office space, 100 more residential units downtown, over 20,000 square feet of restaurants and retail space, and publicly-accessible open spaces which would invite and engage anyone in or around the building. Make no mistake, this is a HUGE loss for Sacramento if it isn't built, especially as currently proposed. We have to demand more of ourselves, those who want to invest, and not settle for mediocrity (see 601 CM).

It's back to my suspicion that it's not just pure market economics that prevent these projects from being built. Either way, I agree with everyone else that edit: CALPERS should just cut their losses and sell the site if politics are preventing them from moving forward with anything. With MLS (hopefully) around the corner and more and more taller residential units being built, I'd rather just wait until the site is in the hands of a developer who is less mired in politics.

Also, if it's true that there was an anchor tenant ready to go... it gives me a SLIGHT hope that this project isn't completely dead yet.

It’s dead, because i truly don’t think CalPERS was really on board to begin with. I’m sure they’re trying to figure out how to cut their losses without incurring additional losses with absolutely nothing to show for it.

I hope you're wrong but that could be the case. I'm sure Steinberg is busy making sure MLS gets finalized but once that is over and done with I really hope Steinberg starts using his political capital on making sure something gets done with 301CM very soon. Maybe making Gavin Newsom get involved in forcing CalPers to sell or do something with the property or higher ups at CalPers losing their jobs.

Looking at the last pic, I like how the building fills in the gap. It appears to be almost topped off. I have never seen a Sacramento high-rise rise so quickly. I’m looking forward to the exterior skin being placed.

Although I wish the natural resources building was taller, it looks like its going to fill in the skyline decently. Just need more to be built that all or taller.

From all angles it basically fills a gap it seems.

I also want to say that I am impressed with how fast the Natural resource building shot up! I agree with everyone else on the fact that we need a couple much taller buildings that center piece DT and more density on both sides of the I5. I am truly disappointed that we are not seeing a bigger SERIOUS highrise boom in Sac like Frisco and Oakland! I do believe however we will see some amazing things happening in the near future! Too much potential in the city not too!! At least we are getting some fill in and that some of the best spots are not bieng developed with some garbage low rises that are grossly overpriced like LA did in thier first round of development 10 years ago or so!

I think it fills in one of the gaps we had nicely! I would have really liked to see atleast another 100 to 150 ft more height or so but way better than Nothing!!! I think once the skin goes on that it will be a very nice building! I dont get DT like I used to so I truly appreciate your pics Novatone82 and all the others posted! If anyone else has any please post them! alright then, hope everyone of you on here has a amazing day and enjoys watching our Skylines grow as much as I do!
