Rebirth with a (re)purpose!
Sacramento King’s owner, Vivek Ranadive has said he is committed to building the “greenest arena in the greenest state in the country” And he’s getting it done!
All but 2% of the Downtown Plaza’s demolished buildings have been recycled or re-purposed. In about 8 months the project has generated the equivalent of 3 years worth of recycled material typically recycled by the citizens of Sacramento. Click here to read more in the Sacramento Business Journal.
Perhaps this is why the early ESC renderings looked to some like a “crushed aluminum can”! Their vision got mixed up with the image of a recycled mall!
Or perhaps our shortage of residential housing in Downtown/ Midtown can use some of the Downtown Plaza’s rubble to re-purpose some buildings into places to live?
