R Street Corridor Urban Design and Development Plan
Capitol Area Development Authority, Sacramento, California
MIG led a team of urban designers, architects, planners, engineers and economic analysts to develop a new vision and implementation plan to set the stage for long-awaited redevelopment along the R Street Corridor, a historic 20-block section of Sacramento’s old industrial belt. MIG conducted an extensive community outreach program in conjunction with the planning process to ensure that the new plan reflected the ideas and needs of stakeholders and community. MIG developed urban design guidelines and development standards for the public and private realm that addressed overall image and identity, preservation of historic character, circulation, architectural character of future buildings, and streetscape standards. The guidelines also addressed ordinance and zoning changes. Construction is completed for a two-block stretch of the project.
