Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento
Aerial View: The Urban Village will incorporate places for people to eat, live, work, entertain and receive care.
The Midtown medical campus is designed to be the hub of a vibrant “urban village” in the heart of Sacramento’s Midtown neighborhood. Offering enhanced medical services and a more user-friendly medical campus, this project is also designed to complement the cultural, historic, commercial and special qualities of the Midtown neighborhood.
Exciting community features of the project include:
- A partnership with the "B Street Theatre" to create a unique live two-stage theatre complex featuring the "Children's Theatre of California." The Anderson Lucchetti Women’s and Children’s Center envisions linking "healing arts" with the multi-cultural atmosphere of the neighborhood, and exploring opportunities to expand enjoyable and innovative care programs for young patients.
- The Sutter Brownstones along N Street between 26th and 27th Streets are within walking distance of some of the city’s best restaurants, cafes, boutiques and galleries. LoftWorks designed the Sutter Brownstones with substantial input from our neighbors and community stakeholders to match the look and character of our Midtown neighborhood.
- A street-level restaurant with an outdoor plaza area is planned on the first floor of the new Sutter Capital Pavilion located on L Street across from Sutter’s Fort as part of the comprehensive medical campus.
- A neighborhood parking garage designed to minimize traffic and parking impacts on the surrounding neighborhood. Sutter Community Garage opened in February 2008 at the corner of Capitol Avenue and N Street, and provides parking spaces to neighboring churches, including the Trinity Cathedral and Pioneer Congregation Church, local businesses and cultural attractions, as well as Sutter medical staff and personnel. The community parking complex is designed to accommodate 1,100 vehicles and help minimize the use of on-street parking by those working and using hospital facilities.
- Sutter worked with cultural and natural resources consulting firm Tremaine and Associates and local Native American Tribes (the Shingle Springs Band of Miwok Indians, United Auburn Indian Community, Nashville-El Dorado Miwok Indians, and the Ione Band of Miwok Indians) to conduct archeological monitoring around the excavation and construction activities and to plan for how to handle any artifacts or human remains found at construction sites.
“I’m excited to watch Sacramento’s midtown grow and evolve with Sutter Medical Center, Trinity Cathedral and the B Street Theatre leading the way. This renovation and expansion will fit with what our community needs to continue thriving.”
Jimmie Yee, Sacramento County Board of Supervisors
“We enjoyed working closely with the neighborhood to design homesthat are architecturally distinctive, yet still in keeping with thehistoric character of the community. The homes have been warmlyembraced by the neighborhood as a valued addition to the SMCS urban village.”
