Davis Downtown To Discuss Trackside Center Project
Davis Downtown invites member businesses and the community to the October 28, 2015 Brown Bag meeting at the Pence Gallery for an open discussion about the proposed Trackside Center project.
A short presentation by Kemble Pope, Project Manager, will be followed by an opportunity to ask questions and give input on the proposal.
Trackside Project Summary
Join us as we learn more about the recent proposal to redevelop the Trackside Center at 901-919 Third Street. The new mixed-use building proposes 10,000 SF of new retail space, underground parking and 48 residences in a 5 1/2 story building.High-quality rental residences are designed for empty-nesters and young professionals that want to live an urban lifestyle with pedestrian, bicycle and transit options for their daily needs.
Benefits to the community include higher-quality retail options on an inviting and relaxing ‘Rail Promenade’, new environmentally progressive housing options and more residents to advocate for the continued renewal of our cherished downtown. Also, the new building will create a large, ongoing net increase of financial benefit to the City that can help fund other community needs.
Downtown Davis and Old East Davis will benefit from the conversion of an eye-sore alley into a safer, European-style, pedestrian and bicycle friendly passage activated by retail and residential use. Underground utilities and improved streetscapes and sidewalks will create a more pleasing experience for residents and visitors.
