SacRT Planning, Construction and Initiatives
Current/Ongoing Planning Projects
University/65th Street and Florin/Meadowview Light Rail Station TODs
SacRT progressed transit oriented development (TOD) investments that have been 30 years in the making, which included signed purchase sale agreements for properties at University/65th Street Station (Symphony Development), Arden Way (Community Housing Works) and Cemo Circle (USA Properties). SacRT closed on the purchase sale agreement of its first TOD property at the University/65th Street transit center in November 2019. The buyers, a joint venture between The Martin Group, Symphony Development and AECOM Canyon Partners, are approved to build the “65th East” project, which includes 223 college student focused housing apartments with ground floor retail.
The development is adjacent to one of SacRT’s busiest transit centers and light rail stations, utilized by more than 40,000 light rail riders and 30,000 bus riders per month. The deal included the reconstruction and modernization of bus stops on 67th and Q streets. The new bus stops are closer to the station and have all new ADA compliant crosswalks, making it easier and safer to connect to transit.
Service Implementation Expected: Continuous
