About the Project
Township 9 is a planned mixed-use, transit-oriented development project located in Sacramento’s River District, bordering the American River. The new community (estimated at $2 billion) will sit on 65 acres of in-fill land and include 2,350 residential units, 840, 00 square feet of office space, 140,000 square feet of retail space, and a new light rail station for the Regional Transit Green Line. The project is expected to achieve Gold status for The U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED for Neighborhood Development program.
