The A.J.-menities: What to Expect Living at The A.J.

October 25, 2023 | By The Railyards

We here at the Sacramento Railyards are more than excited to see The A.J. open its doors and welcome residents into this bustling new addition to our community. It’s named after A.J. Stevens, a master mechanic and “Father of Innovation,” who helped shape the Southern Pacific Railroad in the late 1800s. This new pet-friendly apartment building is equipped with studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom floor plans with a sustainable and fresh design paying subtle homage to the Railyards' roots. Check out these extraordinary amenities ready to provide a modern, comfortable, and affordable home.

Apartment Features

Starting with the piece de resistance itself, the apartments at The A.J. have tons of amenities behind their doors to provide fun, utility, and comfort to those who live there. 

Each apartment comes equipped with the classic basic amenities such as cable-ready attachments, dishwashers, microwaves, and patios/balconies overlooking the ever-expanding Railyards and Downtown Sacramento. 

The apartments also come with fantastic tech designed to keep you safe, cozy, and feeling lavish. They include:

  • A Honeywell T6 Pro Smart Thermostat: This thermostat is designed to give you complete control over your home's temperature from anywhere. Using their app, you can change and view temperatures from anywhere. You also have the ability to set a full 7-day schedule or just let the T6 do its thing and automatically respond in tune with the heating and cooling stages of your existing system. 
  • Yale Smart Door Lock (Exact Model May Vary): This lock provides you the ease of key-free access with choices on how you want to unlock, whether through the keypad, voice assistant, Auto-Unlock, or the Yale Access App. You can also share the passcode or access with your app without having to come to your door all the time. They also provide an auto-lock feature, so you never have to wonder if you locked up before you left.
  • Quartz Countertops: Each kitchen has gorgeous quartz countertops that actually have more benefits than just sitting pretty. First, they are hard, durable, and non-porous, so you don’t have to worry about any holes or cracks that might leech in any spills. Most also have a sealant or wax coating designed for easy wipe-downs in the case of spills.  

Community Features

In addition to having immediate access to the Railyard district, there are tons of spaces in and around The A.J. built for making memories with friends and family or just having a quiet moment to yourself. 

  • Sky Lounge: Equipped with a kitchen and private room, this is the perfect place for community and connecting with neighbors and friends alike. 
  • The Terminal: This area comes with lounge areas, a private meeting room, and a club room where you can enjoy games or have a fun place to hang out after a long day.
  • Bike Repair Station: About to leave and realize your chain came loose? No worries! You can stop by the bike repair station to find everything you need to fix your bike and get back on the road.
  • The Rooftop: In addition to providing amazing views of the Railyards and Downtown Sacramento, the rooftop is also a great place to kick back and relax any time of day. It is equipped with a barbeque, outdoor dining area, courtyard, and numerous fire tables, great for roasting and toasting. 
  • Fitness Center: Looking for a place to get your pump on? You don’t even have to leave The A.J.! You can find all you need to stay fit right in the fitness center without leaving the comfort of your home. 
  • Pet Washing Station: If you’re caught in Sacramento’s rare rain spells, you can clean off your furry friend right in The A.J. without worrying about tracking dirt anywhere.
  • Pool: If you’ve lived in Sacramento during summer, you know how hot it can get. But rest assured that there is a cool pool to relax in with nice shaded and private cabanas. And yes…there’s also a hot tub and spa!

With so much to look forward to enjoying at The A.J., we cannot wait for everyone to see it in person once they open their doors. Immerse yourself in their space using their Virtual Tour, showing off their lounges and fantastic rooftop. You can also check out all their in-depth floor plans here, giving you an insight into your possible next home. With all that and more, we invite you to explore The A.J. and see all that it has to offer.
