The Sac Bee: Arden Fair may get a lot of new neighbors: Apartment complex would be among region’s largest

One of the largest residential properties in the region is proposed for the vacant 25-acre space next to Arden Fair mall once occupied by the Sacramento Inn.

The project, called Arden Gateway, would build 737 units in two stand-alone apartment complexes split by a “spine” road that allows access to the street. It’s helmed by developer Sotiris Kolokotronis.

“We thought they would do an outstanding job,” said Mark Friedman, who co-owns the land the apartments would be built on, along with Sue Watkins. Friedman also owns Arden Fair mall, which is adjacent to the empty lot proposed for the project. For him, Arden Gateway is the perfect complement to the mall.
