This map illustrates current and future configurations as approved in the River District Specific Plan.


In business and in real estate, location is a key to success. The River District is a compelling choice for new business opportunities.

  • Its location in Sacramento’s central city, adjacent to downtown, makes it an ideal business, transportation and residential center
  • It supports diverse land use opportunities for commercial, industrial, public agency, retail and residential
  • Its transportation network provides easy access to Interstates 5 and 80, as well as Sacramento International Airport
  • Its accessibility to transit and the intermodal transit station make it one of the region’s most accessible sites with light rail or bus service available within a 10-minute walk from any point in the District
