Cal Expo

Sacramento, California

Located on 700 acres northeast of the state’s capitol, this redevelopment master plan creates a vibrant, environmentally friendly mixed-use community on the California Exposition and State Fair grounds.  New state-of-the-art fair facilities and an NBA arena will create a regional destination, providing year-round access to professional and collegiate sports, performing arts, concerts, trade shows and other entertainment. The plan incorporates such sustainable design principles as energy-efficient buildings, public and alternative transportation, and walkable districts in a program that also encompasses retail, hotel/conference center, office and residential components.
