The Railyards team looked to other innovative projects for inspiration on the Central Shops urban village. Revolutionary projects such as the Urban Outfitters Headquarters at the Navy Yards in Philadelphia, and Twitter Headquarters in Market Square, San Francisco, are perfect examples of the adaptive reuse that will transform the Central Shops into a thriving gathering place.
This “City within a City” will be an inventive urban space where people can connect with each other, the community, with Sacramento’s rich past, and a modern future. And as a transportation hub, The Railyards will connect you with neighboring communities and the broader region by train, bus, and even light-rail.
The biggest inspiration for The Railyards team came not from another space or place, it came from our community.
