Fox 40: Proposal could bring new grocery store to Oak Park food desert

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KTXL) — City leaders are considering a new proposal that could bring the former Food Source supermarket off Broadway and Stockton Boulevard back to life.

When the doors of Food Source on 4401 Broadway closed in March of last year, a major problem started brewing for the people of Oak Park.

“It created a food desert in one of our greatest, neediest areas, making it harder for shoppers with little to no means of transportation during a pandemic get to surrounding grocery stores and buy fresh groceries,” said District 6 Councilman Eric Guerra.

The Natomas Buzz: New Rental Community Proposed in Natomas

A new single-family rental community in Natomas is being proposed by Sacramento developer Sotiris Kolokotronis.

“We believe, based on the proximity to schools, freeways, downtown and employment centers, this is a very very good site,” Kolokotronis told The Natomas Buzz.

A recent planning permit application filed by Kolokotronis with the city of Sacramento requests a rezone, General Plan amendment, site plan and design review for 82 rental homes at 920 San Juan Road.

SKK Developments is in escrow to buy the undeveloped 9.17-acre parcel from the Catholic Diocese of Sacramento, which put the property on the market about a year ago, said Kolokotronis, founder and president.

Sac Biz Journal: 2021 Best Real Estate Projects: H16 Apartments

We’re introducing you to our Best Real Estate Projects of the Year. This is the top urban apartment project.

“Anytime you’re doing urban infill, you have to be extra concerned about the public’s safety,” said Kevin Sauser, architect for the H16 Apartments project, responding to a question about the specific challenges posed by building in an area with high vehicular and pedestrian traffic.

“Actually, as it turned out, the majority of our gawkers were other builders and the area’s business owners, all of whom have a stake in the success of projects in Sacramento’s midtown,” he said.

The five-story, 95-unit apartment complex, which originally was envisioned to be only four stories, is at 1601 H St. The new development — which cost about $24 million to build and was completed a year-and-a-half ago — is located on a site that previously served as an overflow parking lot for the Clarion Hotel, which was torn down last year to make way for a mixed-use project.

SKK Developments’ newest proposal is still urban infill, but with nary a trace of the residential footprint in all the company’s recent projects.
